African Americans (also referred to as Black Americans or Afro-Americans) are an ethnic group of Americans with total or partial ancestry from any of the black racial groups of Africa. Immigrants from some Caribbean, Central American and South American nations and their descendants may or may not also self-identify with the term. African-American history starts in the 16th century, with peoples from West Africa forcibly taken as slaves to Spanish America, and in the 17th century with West African slaves taken to English colonies in North America.

Pointer Sisters continued to look ahead, carving their own niche in a genre soon to be glutted with contenders. This set is a thriller, from the opening funk groove of the number one hit How Long (Betcha’ Got a Chick on the Side), which remains a delicious collision of mid-period soul, funk, and nascent disco, to their energetic cover of Stevie Wonder‘s Sleeping Alone and Chainey Do, which sports jazz fusionist Herbie Hancock on clavinet. STEPPIN’ is a high point in the Pointer Sisters 70’s output, and their final album for Blue Thumb; with plenty of space for their 40s style Big band chorus singing, as well as some of their heaviest funk of all time. Instead they’re probably remembered for their 70s work more from the CAR WASH Soundtrack than this amazing album. The group had 13 US top 20 hits between 1973 and 1985. They then signed with Blue Thumb Records, recorded their debut album, and began seeing more success, winning a Grammy Award in 1975 for Best Country Vocal Performance for "Fairytale" (1974). Bonnie left the group in 1978 to commence a solo career with only modest success.

With a big push from their Blue Thumb label, who introduced the band by way of a full-page ad in Billboard magazine, the Pointer Sisters took their eponymous debut straight to the top of the R&B charts in summer 1973 on the strengths of their penchant for mixing classic '60s R&B with fresh forward-thinking grooves. Produced by David Rubinson, The Pointer Sisters contained effusive covers that cradled two of the Pointers' own compositions.
