Yes We Can Can - The Best of the Blue Thumb Recordings
Released: Jul 1997
Label: Hip-O (Uc)
No, "I'm So Excited" isn't here. This compilation is a bit more old-school, taking its title from the sister act's first hit, covering their tenure with Blue Thumb from 1975-1977 and showing off their funkier (and bluesier, and jazzier, and show tunier?) tendencies. The Pointer Sisters' fierceness, however, is timeless. Highlights include the slap(bass)-tastic "You Gotta Believe," slow-burning jazz groove "Black Coffee" and the ultra-sassy "How Long."
