Music today has been The Pointer Sisters‘ Jump: The Best Of The Pointer Sisters (1989) as today we lost Anita Pointer before the new year dawned. They had many hits (27 in the Billboard Top 100) with their pop, soul, R&B, including the Bruce Springsteen-penned Fire (1978). Hits with He’s So Shy (1980, originally written as He’s So Shy for Leo Sayer), Slowhand (1981) and many more followed, my personal favourite, Automatic (1985), sung by Ruth, the only surviving member of the trio (that also included June who died in 2006). Sister Bonnie left the band in 1977 and died in 2020.
