September 2014: ANITA POINTER's solo album "Love For What It Is" (1987 RCA) will be re-released by Big Break Records on October 27, 2014! Remastered with bonus tracks and liner notes by Christian John Wikane will include a new interview with Anita! Here's a excerpt: "While Richard Perry had produced each of the trio’s albums on Planet and RCA, including June’s Baby Sister, RCA paired Anita with a producer fully steeped in contemporary R&B, Preston Glass. He’d recently worked on releases by Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Phyllis Hyman, and Angela Bofill, and had also co-produced Kenny G’s multi-platinum Duotones (1986), which spawned the Top 5 “Songbird.” Anita welcomed the change. “RCA kind of put this whole thing together for me,” she says. "I did all of the arrangements on all the songs. I was running off to The Record Plant to do stuff when Pointer Sisters were off the road. We were so busy. I don't know how I did this!” Available here.
