Anita Pointer - Love For What It Is.
• Anita Pointer was born in 1948 in California, the second eldest sister of the hugely successful Pointer Sisters. She joined her sisters Bonnie and June in 1969, officially forming The Pointer Sisters. During the group's career, many of their hits featured lead vocals by Anita. This list included their first hit single, a cover of Allen Toussaint's 'Yes We Can Can' in 1973. Anita co-wrote and sung lead on both 'Fairytale' (which earned her a Grammy for best country single by a duo or group in 1975) and 'How Long (Betcha Got A Chick On The Side)' which gave the group a #1 Billboard soul hit that same year. She also sang lead on the group's biggest American pop hits, 'Fire' and 'Slow Hand' and was the primary writer of their massive international signature hit, 'I'm So Excited.'
• After the explosive success The Pointer Sisters enjoyed in the mid-eighties with hits like 'Automatic', 'Jump (For My Love)', and 'Dare Me', she decided to take a short break from the group and work on her first solo album. The resulting LP LOVE FOR WHAT IT IS was released in 1987. The album was produced by R&B hit-maker Preston Glass and features two R&B hit singles in the form of the Michael and Brenda Sutton penned 'Overnight Success' as well as 'More Than A Memory'. The former featured a 12" Dance Mix by Francois K and the latter included one by Timmy Regisford. Those remixes make their CD debut here on the album’s first expanded remaster. Other highlights include 'Love Me Like You Do', which made an impact with UK soul fans, the Brenda Russell co-penned 'Beware Of What You Want' and 'The Pledge', a duet with Phillip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire.
• Newly remastered and released in a deluxe Super Jewel case with bonus tracks and a brand new interview with Anita Pointer, LOVE FOR WHAT IT IS is a must for all Eighties Soul, Dance and Pop fans out there!
