I'm about to lose control.
Great, great songs, but it's really all about those Neutron Dancers.
I love their Solid Gold Outfits!
It's really all about those subtle, understated costumes... Jx
The excitement of Pointer Sisters on my Ipod shuffle have resulted in leadfoot and near-miss speeding tickets lately.
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."
i love the Pointer Sisters, even though they look like last year's christmas ornaments. alas. check out wanting things, from the steppin albumn. kabuki's sad song
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.
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?
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.
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.
"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.
