Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the R&B outfit's 1978 album. Energy was quickly certified Gold making US Pop #13 & R&B #9 in the process. The album was preceded by their cover of Bruce Springsteen's 'Fire' which became their first Gold single. 'Fire' made #2 on the Hot 100 as well as hitting the #1 spot in the Netherlands, South Africa and New Zealand. Energy also features songs originally recorded by Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Redbone and The Doobie Brothers and further enhanced the Pointers reputation of being one of the most versatile vocal acts the music industry has ever known.

Format: Audio CD
For some years now I owned this album on vinyl and,to be honest I never listened to it that much. The main reason is for anyone whose mainly familiar with the Pointer's huge pop hits circa 1980-1985 this might come as something of a musical shocker. Obviously this is the sister's debut on Planet,with Richard Perry of course at the controls.So what's the big deal about that?Well the Pointer's,known as a funky R&B act with a lot of jazz and country mixed it were suddenly released this album possitioning them as an impassioned rock trio,with some often greasy rocking guitar riffs from Waddy Wachtel. What makes this album so unique is the sister's gospel and R&B backrounds made them ideal to be one of many pioneers of late 70's rock 'n soul. Honestly it was a style mostly associated with white musicians and at the same time the Pointer's were delivering it from the source. And even if you a hardcore R&B/funk fan this won't put you off at all. In fact I bet you'll be pretty excited after hearing it. True it's an album of covers,some more known than others but if the power and every of "Lay It On The Line","Angry Eyes" and "Come And Get Your Love" doesn't wack you over the head first than the milder "Dirty Work","As I Come Of Age" or even the breakout hit on this album "Fire" certainly will. There are also a handfull of songs that are,by the standards of the day conventional "commercial R&B" type songs such as to be heard in the sneaky shuffle of "Hypnotized" and the....well gospel country-disco flavor of "Happiness",written by their old stand by from the Blue Thumb days Allen Toussaint. "Echoes Of Love" ironically takes a Michael McDonald era Doobie Brothers song and...gives it a bit more of a pre McDonald era Doobie sound. It's kind of a clever if unintentional musical twist on Perry's part.Read more ›

WHERE DO I START! first of all i have been e-mailing WOUNDED BIRD
RECORD LABEL FOR THE PAST 7 YEARS TO RELEASE "ENERGY" on CD- plus i
and others have been discussing WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR-why has'nt this been released on CD yet. well now it has. EVERYTHING JUST FELL INTO PLACE WITH THIS RELEASE IN 1978---richard perry an amazing producer starts
PLANET RECORDS his own label distributed by ELEKTRA RECORDS. AND PLANET
1--IS POINTER SISTERS "ENERGY" what a master piece truly magic and truly
in my opinion one of the best releases ever. THE POINTER SISTERS what
a amazing group. all 3 sisters have their own signature sound and
voice their own. and each song each sings fits perfectly with their
style. i am so glad to have this on CD. and thank you WOUNDED BIRD
which is a pretty cool label releasing out of print CD's and putting
classic recordings on CD"s. they did it with maria muldaur, nicolette
larson, ben orr, and now the pointer sisters and candi staton. it is
like magic. no need in talking about the greatness of this release
each song is classic and i have to say better than the original artists.
"as i come of age" sends chills to me. just wish june pointer was around
to see this released. still miss and love you june. and thanks AMAZON
for having this in stock from what i hear there was such a demand
some are on back order. i already own BLACK AND WHITE and just got
ENERGY in and also PRIORITY. and fans need to stop with the sound quality it is fine to me. i am just happy this is on CD and having
extra songs is just more to love. thanks to the POINTER SISTERS who
have given me so much pleasure listening to your beautiful vocals.
better get this because it may go out of print like SPECIAL THINGS
did

I've heard some of the tracks off of the Pointer Sisters' ENERGY CD/ALBUM on the many various compilations that are out there like the hit single "Fire" and "Happiness," but those are just the tip of the iceberg. Since I didn't have this album as a kid, and it went out of print pretty fast, I never heard the rest of the offerings.

Let me say that ENERGY is another standout album from the Pointer Sisters! I don't know why it took so long to be re-issued?

The music is a fusion of rock and gospel, and though most of the songs are covers like "Angry Eyes" by Loggins & Messina, "Fire" by Bruce Springsteen, and "Everybody Is A Star" by Sly & The Family Stone, the Pointers put their own stamp on the music with their wonderful harmony.

Other stand outs for me besides "Fire"--which Anita does beautifully-- though the whole album is great: "Lay It On The Line"--June takes the lead on this complete with piano, guitar and snare drums; "Come And Get Your Love"--Ruth takes lead and this song rocks with organ sounding like a gospel hymn; "Happiness"--June on lead with Ruth and Anita right on her heels, the song has an infectious beat; "Echoes Of Love"--Anita on lead and this song sounds like early Hall & Oats, but it's another catchy tune with great harmony.

There are three bonus tracks: "Love Is Like A Rolling Stone," "If You Wanna Get Back Your Lady," (previously released on other compilations) and "Happiness" 12" version.

The fold-out, one page cover shows some pics from the album jacket. No liner notes.

Wounded Bird Records has done a good job remastering the CD like another reviewer pointed out.

I definitely would recommend ENERGY to fans of the Pointer Sisters. It's a good solid album that doesn't sound dated at all.
