Pointer Sisters (1974) - Fairytale

Hi Steven. I hope you and the family are all well. I always liked everything about the Pointer Sisters: that 1940s look, the music etc. However, I thought there were only three of them - I may have to adjust my sexual fantasies!
By the way, I'm not sure if that country tune was meant to be ironic? But I did enjoy it!

Hi Bazza,

The number of sisters never varied, but the number of them in the band did change over time.

This song came out of their swing period - I don't think they had a country period as such.

I knew this song the first time around, but never appreciated it enough until I saw this video. Slightly ironic, yes, but they do it so well. It's hard not to be impressed by their ability - and the song - when you see this.
