"Yes We Can" may be a familiar phrase in the Obama era, but the Pointer Sisters were rocking it back in the early 70s.
The Pointer Sisters were one of the many great examples of the 40s revival in the early 70s, and popular interest of both the fashion and music of the big-band era. Trying to find gorgeous rayon crepe floral dresses may be like a needle in a haystack today, but back then they could be picked up in the thrifts for just a few dollars. It's sweet to see the dedication the look in the hairstyles and platform shoes. And dang, but those girls could sing. (I also really enjoyed the surprising example of vocal beatboxing by Gaylord Birch.)
