Pointer Sisters, Brick, and the Brecker Brothers, as played by Paul

6 07 2011

Pointer Sisters ~ Happiness ~ Planet Records ~ 1979

Written by Adam Toussaint, this is such a great track. 30 on the Hot 100 , 20 on the US R&B, and 18 on the US Dance chart.

Brick ~ Dazz ~ Bang Records ~ 1976

From their debut 1976 “Good High” album Brick with their big hit Dazz on Bang Records. This track is a really great example of different musical styles being fused together – all the elements are there – all the elements blend to make something really special. Hence Dazz was a number 3 on theHot 100, spent 4 weeks at number 1 on the US R&B chart, and made 36 over here – remember, this was 1976.

Brecker Brothers ~ Sneakin’ Up Behind You ~ Arista ~ 1975

From their eponymous debut album Randy and Michael Brecker recording together as the Brecker Brothers and Sneakin’ Up Behind You. Written by Randy and Michael with Don Grolnick, Will Lee, and David Sanborn. If you love a good brass section you’ll love this one.
