Don't waste your money...

"...on the disappointing performance and wretched sound quality of this DVD. As a long time fan of the Pointer Sisters who have seen them perform live many times, let's hope that RCA re-releases their 1985 VHS "So Excited" Video on DVD - or their 1987 HBO Live performance - both of which were outstanding."
Never made it through the whole thing

"I love the Pointer Sisters. What they did to them with this release should be a crime! Thank God it is possible to take old two track recordings and make them sound good on DVD. BUT THIS AIN'T IT.ONE OF THE WORST AUDIO TRACKS I HAVE EVER HEARD. I would give it no stars, but that option doesn't exist."
Shame on Amazon

"As a long time fan of the Pointers this was an insult to their name and memory. And shame on Amazon for not telling us what a sick joke this was."
A disappointing video of a very good group!

"Having purchased the Pointer Sisters audio CD "Break Out" years ago, and finding it a first rate recording both in content and fidelity, I was anxious to get them on a music DVD. Upon my recent receipt, I hit "play" and sat back for what I thought would be a performance of similar caliber. WHAT A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!I found the quality of the audio to be sub-standard in its clarity, definitely not even close to my two channel audio CD, and the on-stage performance was lacking in the energy a person typically sees in the Pointer Sisters. Instead of a high-enery pace, this DVD of their Africa performance is lackluster.Do yourself a favor and spend your hard earned money on another selection."
