Bonnie Pointer - Bonnie Pointer 2

Between the Pointer Sisters' mid-70s successes with tracks like 'How Long', 'Yes We Can Can' and 'Fairytale' and their 80s rebirth as Richard Perry-produced pop sensations, sister Bonnie left the fold and signed to Motown as a solo artist, releasing two solo albums. The big hit from her first album was a discofied version of the Motown classic `Heaven Must Have Sent You'...somewhat cynically perhaps her second solo album accompanied the same cut with five other grooved-up readings of Motown classics. Hmmm. Fans of 'Free Me From My Freedom' from the first album will be pleased to know that the disco banjo makes a welcome reappearance on 'When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes'...

1. I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) (5:21)
2. Jimmy Mack (4:14)
3. Heaven Must Have Sent You (3:29)
4. When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes (4:17)
5. Deep Inside My Soul (4:28)
6. Come See About Me (4:31)
7. Nowhere To Run (Nowhere To Hide) (5:45)

Give me that MOTOWN DISCO
