Monday, November 24, 1986 Daily Nebraskan Page 11 Meview Board The Pointer Sisters, "Hot To gether" (RCA) n Pointer sisters have been a mainstay in American mainstream soul i'J';:'.;,' for more than a decade. Through A , v.;i;s, they've put out some very dance-pop music and some very lauM'iime junk. No. they don't write i; ( ;p wn music, and it's far too easy to ; js(' tl-t-in with Sister Sledge, LiRelle a;: l the host of other black female s. l'v.it their H)7X rendition of Bruce's V.,,." lias earned a special place in my i') coilectioti. The Puiiiter Sister's new LP. "Hot Together," firmly places Anita. June ,:a.l Huth in an '80s pop quagmire. 1 do iK've. unlike many of my fellow Daily Nebraskan critics, that there is such a ; ipi! as good pop music. There sure ;,,': iiiuchof it. but it does exist. For a second. The Pointers had me fooled villi the opening track, "My Life," which kicks off the LP with some heavy funk and beautiful African rhythms. No. the words aren't too intelligent. But when you like some occasional silly pop like I do. you have to listen to some mindless lyrics, But as long as you can dance to it, what the heck. "My Life" is a great tune with heavy horns and an intense beat. The rest of the LP degenerates into more of the Patti LaBelle. Sister Sledge, and who-evei-liiui the-big porhit-l:ist-ye;ir drivel. As I listened to the LP, I could just if.'cu t!e potent ial hits. They're easy to pick out, since they sound exactly like the Pointer Sisters' hits from the last LP. "Goldmine" and "Sexual Power" will undoubtedly be on KFRX soon. The Pointers are best when one of the sisters steps forward to sing sole as in "Fire." June goes solo on "All I Know is the Way I Feel" to create one of t he better slow songs. Overall, the Pointers just didn't take chances and come up with something as unconventional as "Fire." Conserva tism doesn't make great music, but it sure makes hits and money. Stew Magnuson Lonnie Mack, "Second Sight" (Allu'ator) When George Thoroughgood was asked recently why so much of bis music was covers of other people's music instead of original compositions, lie replied, "Because Chuck Berry already wrote all the great rock 'n' roll songs." 1 think Thoroughgood's comment is more telling of the creative vacuum he is so obviously working in than it is a tribute to the great Chuck Berry. To Thoroughgood. I have only one reply. Listen to Lonnie Mack's brillaint "Strike Like Lightning" LP from, last year, then go out and buy his latest, "Second Sight." Yes, fresh and exciting rock 'n' roll is still being recorded, despite what Thoroughgood says. Anyone who saw Mack's two Zoo Bar performances last month probably would agree. Mack first hit the radio waves in VMV.) with "The Wham! of That Memphis Man." a scorching LI'. He's had three comebacks since then, and this time I hope he's here to stay. He had some help, though.
