Great Collection...STILL not complete!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This 2-CD collection is very thorough that even casual fans should be willing to buy and forget the usual single CD hits collection. All the major hits are here: "Fire", "Slow Hand", and songs from their most successful album "Break Out".However, there is not enough material from their early Blue Thumb recording. The good news: there is a "best of" album for that period that to me is essential. That's the reasoning for my title.The packaging is good: the pictures and liner notes are exceptional. There are no lyrics nor chart entries listed. However, you can find the lyrics on the internet. There are several music archives listed in the booklet as well."
THE GIRLS BURN WITH FIRE ON THIS REMASTERED 2 CD SET!

"This is the best Pointer Sisters retro so far, and it comes from RCA-BMG. The CD that I'm talking about is The Very best Of
The Pointer Sisters-Fire. This is a 2 CD set and starts at the beginning of their career up to their final RCA-BMG release.
We got here their first recording for Atlantic "Don't Try To Take The Fifth" way back in ''72. Then comes four killers from the
MCA/BlueThumb era "Yes We Can Can," "Wang Dang Doodle," "Fairytale" & "How Long (Betcha Got A Chick On The
Side)". Man, this stuff smokes! Then follows all their smashes along with a few solo recordings by June & Anita from their solo
releases. They're all here! "Everybody Is A Star," " He's So Shy," "Fire," Slow Hand," & I'm So Excited". Plus many many
more all time great classics by these girls! Extensive liner notes & a book full of pixs is included! A+"
All the good stuff but a tad too much fluff

"As best I can tell, this is the only CD with the extended version of "Fairytale" (which was reason enough for me to buy it). The Pointer Sisters have done much very good work, just about all of it on this album."Jump", Neutron Dance", "Slow Hand", How Long" and a big big handful of tunes make this worth having. However, there are just too many songs to be skipped over, and the Sisters didn't have (in my opinion) enough strong material to make a "Very Best Of" collection into two discs."
