Description

SoulMusic Records is very proud to present the reissue of the first two classic albums by the legendary Pointer Sisters, expanded editions with bonus tracks (single edits of charted singles from each LP) a vivid reminder of the original quartet's unique sound and style, prior to their global success of the '80s as dance and pop hitmakers. .A brief stint at Atlantic Records where they cut a couple of singles preceded the recording of their self-titled debut, produced by David Rubinson in San Francisco. With its heady mixture of swingin' jazz pieces ('Cloudburst', 'Jada'), gospel-flavoured blues ('River Boulevard') and covers of Koko Taylor's 'Wang Dang Doodle' and the Lee Dorsey, Allen Toussaint-penned, 'Yes We Can Can' (a US top 20 pop and R&B hit), THE POINTER SISTERS became one of 1973's best-selling gold-certified albums, showcasing the family group's imaginative harmonies, with cover art depicting the quartet in '40s-styled garb. 1974's THAT'S A PLENTY (another gold album) was equally eclectic in regards its song selection, from the fast-and-furious 'Salt Peanuts' to the head-boppin' blues 'Grinning In Your Face' ..In depth notes by renowned US writer Justin Kantor include 2018 quotes from Anita, Bonnie and Ruth Pointer chronicling their arrival on the music scene; with great remastering by Nick Robbins and first class artwork by Roger Williams.
