    Too bad they didn’t give this song to Vanity!!! Just kidding. 😉 This is one of the Pointers most under-rated tracks, IMHO.

    The Pointers have always been a staple of mine in the 80s, especially the first half of it. Automatic is my ultimate favourite!
    I must admit that I had gone off them a bit after their Contact era, and their chart slide didn’t help either.
    So while I was aware of this single, I didn’t pay much attention to it then.
    With a different perspective and a different era now, it is a good time to savour this to see what I missed the first time round.
    Thanks Paul!
    and Happy Weekend!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! One of my all-time favorite “secret” hits. It’s too bad they never released “Hot Together” as a single. I remember the NBA created a great ad for the playoffs and RCA should’ve taken advantage of it.

    DenverDean you’re very welcome that was a great ad.

    Although I love a huge amount of music, ABBA and The Pointer Sisters are my MOST favourite artists in my life. Anita, Ruth and June’s music went straight to my heart when I bought “Break Out” around the time of “Neutron Dance” and I then started hunting out their back catalogue (and discovered there was Bonnie too)… I bought every album and every 7″ and 12″ single from then on and all the solo albums and singles too… I just love them so much 🙂
    Thanks for this excellent rip of this 12″… so much better than my own worn out 12″.
    RIP June xxxxxx
    Thank you Paul xox
    🙂
