One of the Pointer Sisters hottest 1980s hits, the delicious ”Slow Hand” not only gave the band a late spring hit in 1981, but also set the bar for many of the themes they’d continue to explore for most of the decade. In a world where women take control for their pleasure, the sweet country slide of ”Slow Hand” became the year’s power ballad as lyrics like “I got a lover with an easy touch. I found somebody who will spend some time, not come and go in a heated rush” ensured the song became everyone’s sing along favorite. Almost melancholy across its melody, ”Slow Hand”, with Anita on lead vocals, was a markedly different hit for this era Pointer Sisters in that it kept the song simple and organic, eschewing synthetic trickery for good old fashioned arrangements. ”Slow Hand” would be reinvented scarcely a year later as country singer Conway Twitty took his version to top of the country charts.
