Stylistically, 's That's A Plenty is as diverse as their Cartagena Es Bonita - Los Ocho De Colombia - Comandantes Del Ritmo debut and proves that the immense talents of the Oakland-born quartet were far more than just a one-off fluke.

In fact, it was their multiplicity that may have initially prevented them from getting the exposure they deserved. The opening medley couples the tongue-in-cheek saga of their humble beginnings on the tastefully if not a tad dramatically arranged "Bangin' On the Pipes" with the rollicking bop of "Steam Heat," derived from the score of The Pajama Game.

Things are cranked up considerably on the The Pointer Sisters* - Thats A Plenty ' breakneck rendition of Dizzy Gillespie 's bebop classic "Salt Peanuts. Of equal note are the accompanying instrumentalists, who ably keep pace with substantial verve and sonic savoir-faire. While steeped in the original, it is at once a wholly unique presence. That's A Plenty 's title track is a hot-steppin' Dixieland rag with a tricky syncopation and mile-a-minute lyrics, while "Little Pony" is another classy remake of a venerable jazz number, this time from the luminous Count Basie catalog.

The Pointers definitely do it justice by bringing it to an entirely new audience. The surprising rural twang of "Fairytale" is undoubtedly the most incongruous entry on the LP, garnering the ladies their first foray onto the country singles survey.

The success resulted in not only a guest appearance at the Grand Ole Opry, but formidable lauds as Elvis Presley covered it to great effect both in the studio -- where it surfaced on 's Today -- and on the road. All the more compelling is the dark and lymphatic torch reading of "Black Coffee," brooding and seething with an undercurrent of palpable emotion -- especially during the improvised double-time scat vocals at the tune's conclusion.

Perhaps saving their best for last, the redux of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff 's "Love in Them There Hills" is an The Pointer Sisters* - Thats A Plenty outing that churns and burns into an inspired eight-minutes of unfettered funk, proving that the Pointers are easily as relevant as any of their contemporaries.
