RICHARD PERRY: “Priority is one of my
favorite albums. The musicianship is incomparable. That was a great rock and
roll band. Those tracks I enjoy as much as anything I’ve ever done.”

RICHARD THOMPSON: “I was so thrilled when the Pointer Sisters covered “Don’t Let A
Thief Steal Into Your Heart.” I thought they did a great job adapting it
to their style. Priority remains a
classic.”

GRAHAM PARKER: “To see ‘Turned Up Too Late’ recorded by the Pointer Sisters and
produced by Richard Perry was more than I could have hoped for. What an honor
for me,and what a great job they did.”

TAJ MAHAL: “The Pointer Sisters! The sheer joy and personal excitement I have had
in being part of their audience, performing, recording, touring with them, and
championing their star-studded career.”

· The trade advertisement appeared for
PRIORITY in Billboard magazine on September 15th 1979 proclaiming
‘The Pointer Sisters deliver great Rock & Roll. ‘ Their new album and its
title reflected an industry confidence in The Pointer Sisters after Richard
Perry redefined their career with 1978’s Energy
(CDBBR0105) and the massive hit single ‘Fire’ (Bruce Springsteen). This time
Perry returned the Sisters to their harder rock edge, honed when backing up
acts like Taj Mahal, Cold Blood, Tower Of Power and Grace Slick earlier in the
decade.

· PRIORITY featured the writing
talents of Ian Hunter (‘Who Do You Love’), Bob Seger (‘All Your Love’),
Stealer’s Wheel (‘Blind Faith’), The Band (‘The Shape I’m In’) and The Rolling
Stones (‘Happy’). The album received universally positive reviews but ran into
trouble at radio stations that refused to accept a black female group as a rock
act at the height of the disco era. Cuts like Richard and Linda Thompsons ‘Don’t
Let A Thief Steal Into Your Heart’ and Graham Parkers ‘Turned Up Too Late’, as
well as a return to the Springsteen catalogue (‘She’s Got The Fever’) were
criminally ignored by programmers. Nonetheless the artistry within PRIORITY
ensured a growing fan base for the album which widely regarded as a classic
Rock LP.

· BBR is especially proud to release a
brand new remaster of PRIORITY which features brand new interviews with Anita
Pointer, Ruth Pointer, Richard Perry, Graham Parker and Richard Thompson.
PRIORITY is a must for all seventies Rock, Blues and Soul fans.
