What can we say, darlings? It was inevitable.

  2. Great, great songs, but it's really all about those Neutron Dancers.

  5. The excitement of Pointer Sisters on my Ipod shuffle have resulted in leadfoot and near-miss speeding tickets lately.

  6. I will never understand how the P. Sisters were so close to actual glamor back in the '70s and turned into mere tinsel in the '80s. Also, I will never understand how they managed to reunite Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band to shimmy to "The Neutron Dance."

    1. The Steppin' LP -- and in particular their take on "Wanting Things" -- just wonderful. A favorite of mine since it originally came out with that groovy die-cut shoe cover.

  8. I've always been partial to their early retro work and thrift-store outfits, though I never begrudged them their later success. Didn't they have a summer replacement series in the seventies?

    1. I checked IMDB and, sadly, there's no P. Sisters series listed. I remember The Manhattan Transfer's series with their weekly "Blue Champagne" skit* and, our course, our beloved Captain and Tennille's series.

      Great, now you've just made me nostalgic for summer variety shows.

      *I remember the skit because I loved their rendition of "Blue Champagne" and hated it being turned into a joke.

    2. I guess they were just on TV a lot in the seventies. It's all a big blur to me now!

      By the way, your "glamor into tinsel" description is perfectly put.

  9. "starburst" just came into my head a few weeks ago. THAT was a song.

    i always enjoyed how none of them could pronounce "temperature" in jump.
    sounded more like ten-ta-tuh.

    the girls lost me when they hit it big.
