Pointer Sisters - Priority
Priority is the sixth studio album by the Pointer Sisters, released in 1979 on the Planetlabel. Their second venture with producer Richard Perry, it was also their second venture intorock. The album peaked at number 72 on the Billboard 200 and reached number 44 on the R&B albums chart. Two singles were released, "Blind Faith" and "Who Do You Love". Both songs failed to reach the Billboard Hot 100. The album was remastered and issued on CD with a bonus track, "Nothin' But a Heartache", in 2009 by Wounded Bird Records.
AllMusic Review by Amy Hanson
If the Pointer Sisters caused a puzzled ripple of amazement with the appearance of their rock & roll Planet debut, then they almost certainly broke the dam on 1979's ballsy, bluesed-out Priority. Taking rock covers to the next level and operating still under the guidance of producer Richard Perry, the group delivered another sophisticated set.
