Bonnie Pointer

Bonnie Pointer, one of the Pointer Sisters who left the group for a solo career, died recently. In the late 1970s, she released two albums on Motown of mostly 1960s Motown covers backed by musicians including James Jamerson and Eddie Hazel. Both albums were called Bonnie Pointer.

I am not a disco fan but many of the tracks were excellent because of her singing. “Heaven Must Have Sent You”, a 1978 cover of a song originally recorded by the Elgins, was the most popular. There are two mixes including a disco 12″ version.

This is the second album. Great early Motown songs.
