Product Description

Product Description

THE POINTER SISTERS were one of the most successful female
groups the music industry has seen with 18 Top 20 hit singles
and 10 top 40 albums shared between the US Pop and R&B
charts. In 1982 the Grammy award-winning sisters released the
Richard Perry produced, So Excited, on Planet Records. The
Sisters were backed by members of the band TOTO on the
album.
SO EXCITED features such classics as the top 20 hit, AMERICAN
MUSIC and the hugely popular title track, I M SO EXCITED,
written by Anita, June and Ruth Pointer with the album s
Associate producer Trevor Lawrence. I'M SO EXCITED reached
the Billboard Top 30 but later went on to become the group s
most recognizable Top Ten hit when a remix featured on the
triple platinum selling follow up album BREAK OUT.
Also included are the Dance hit IF YOU WANNA GET BACK YOUR
LADY and the group s popular rendition of Prince s I FEEL FOR
YOU which would became a huge hit for Chaka Khan two years
later.
SO EXCITED reached #24 on the Billboard R&B album chart and
became a huge catalogue seller for the group in the mideighties.
BBR introduces the original full version of SO EXCITED
for the first time on CD. This edition features extensive liner
notes with interviews from Anita ands Ruth Pointer and Remixed
bonus tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars So exciting reissue! 4 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Released now alongside the amazing SPECIAL THINGS album from 1980, this 1982 album is another overlooked classic from the group. Sandwiched between their huge selling Black & White and Break Out albums, it was a moderate seller when released. That is a great shame because it is full of tracks that should have been hit singles for the group such as their version of I Feel For You, Heart To Heart, See How The Love Goes and Heart Beat (eventually the B-Side of Jump).

The remastering is a real improvement on the now rare original CD. This CD also features the original mix of If You Wanna Get Back Your Lady which was accidental left off the original CD.

It's so interesting to hear the original synthy album mix of I'm So Excited now and compare it with the fantastic 12" Mix which here as a bonus cut along with the 12" mix of If You Wanna Get Back Your Lady. The packaging is wonderful and has amazing pictures and interviews.

Highly recommended reissue from a wonderful group. Five stars!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reaching their peak 7 May 2011
By txacoli
Format:Audio CD
Trapped between the success of the girls' "Black and White" album and coming just before the seminal "Breakout", "So Excited" didn't do as well as expected on release. I remember little or no publicity for this and here in the UK at least, hardly any TV appearances. The first single off the album in the US was the rather weak "American Music", which for me is my least favourite track. There are so many other gems on here, but the failure to publicise "I'm so excited" when this CD was initially released is unforgiveable. Instead, it was re-released after the phenomenal success of the singles from "Breakout", became a huge hit and was added to that album as well.

There are some superb tracks on here, showcasing Anita, Ruth & June's amazing vocal dexterity, personal favourites being "I'm so excited", "All of you" and "If you wanna get back your lady", which was the single that never was. BBR have also worked their magic on the remastering, which is sublime as are the liner notes. All this as well as the extra tracks makes this CD reissue one I would heartily recommend to anyone who loves gold standard soulful/pop music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The reissue is finally here! 28 Dec 2010
By Lord Darkseid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I agree with Disco Boy that this is one of the most underrated yet excellent albums from the Pointer Sisters. I have been searching for this cd for years and it has been nearly impossible to find. Every few months or so I would look it up on Ebay hoping to catch a break. Occassionally it would find its on way on there only to be sold for a few hundred dollars! Unless money means nothing to you, thats way too much to spend on any one cd. So I'm just on cloud nine this morning to see that this cd has finally been remastered and even with a couple of bonus tracks. While all the songs are great, the two tracks I've been dying to hear again are "All of You" and "Heart Beat". I think those are the only two tracks not available on any sort of greatest hits compilation...not that I'm aware of. RIP June Pointer...these ladies are just freaking fabulous and they are the best girl group of all time! Yes, even better than The Supremes. Uh huh I said it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb remaster of a great album 1 April 2011
By barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
SO EXCITED was one of the most underrated albums by the Pointer Sisters. Due to the fact that they could sing almost any style of music this is what they did throughout their career. SO EXCITED fell between two milestone recordings BLACK & WHITE and BREAK OUT. SO EXCITED did sell well but not nearly as well as it deserved. It became instead a release known for its singles. I'M SO EXCITED quickly became an infamous Pointer classic that tore up the charts and ruled the dance floors at lightning speed. It is a feel good anthem in a class all its own. Other hits included the other club beat pounding smash IF YOU WANNA GET BACK YOUR LADY and the quiet melodic AMERICAN MUSIC. Of course with this album as with all those of the Pointer Sisters you get superb harmonizing, intense and emotive lead vocals and just pure music artistry. The singles were all huge successes but the album did not do as well and this was a loss for all for there are amazing album tracks here. They do an amazing interpretation of Prince's I FEEL FOR YOU and HEART TO HEART is a r@b classic. But the two total standouts that equal the best of the Pointer Sisters from their entire career is the soul jam ALL OF YOU and in particular the hauntingly beautiful smooth groove ballad SEE HOW THE LOVE GOES. This song is worth the purchase alone.

And then with this cd we get the huge bonus that it is being released by BBR. Established just 2 years ago this company is bringing classic r@b/soul albums from decades ago back to the light in all their glory. If you see it is a BBR release you know it is quality music as well as coming with superb treatment. All their releases provide superb remastering, bonus tracks and extensive liner notes. The clarity and purity of the sound on SO EXCITED is spellbinding. And with the 12" bonus tracks of I'M SO EXCITED and IF YOU WANNA GET BACK YOUR LADY this cd is a must. I am a huge Pointer Sister fan so of course this purchase was a no question for me but I must again reiterate that it is an essential purchase because of the BBR treatment. I have purchased over 20 cds now from BBR and their ever increasing catalogue of superb releases. They have introduced me to artists I did not know before and are bringing back music from a period I think there were standards with music that just are not the same today. SO EXCITED is a must for any Pointer fan but also for any fan of quality music. You will cherish this cd. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Exciting 21 July 2011
By Pavel Palees - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Big Break Records does a great job re-mastering this 1982 Pointer Sisters album. Great liner notes which include interviews with Ruth and Anita Pointer, are very informative and fun to read. The 12 inch remix of the title track is included as a Bonus Track here. Great treat for any Pointer Sisters fan or any fan of early 80's pop/R&B.
