BABY SISTER was her first solo album, produced by Richard Perry and was released on his Planet label in 1983 a few months before the Pointer Sisters multi-platinum album Break Out. It is widely known as the album where Perry perfected the R&B/Dance sound that would soon give the Pointer Sisters the biggest hits of their career Automatic and Jump.
Swing This, Baby!, Vol. 3 from Beyond is another decent collection featuring '90s and new millennium swing revivalists, with solid tracks from artists such as the New Morty Show, Wolfgang Parker, Hipster Daddy-O & the Handgrenades, the Flying Neutrinos, and more.
Swing This, Baby!, Vol. 2 concentrates on the sort of ironic swing-with-a-smirk that made up a not inconsiderable portion of that particular mid- to late-'90s retro craze. It does have "Jump, Jive An' Wail," but not the original by Louis Prima or the hit cover by the Brian Setzer Orchestra but rather a version by the Crescent City Maulers; it's good, but not quite up to the level of the former two. Other groups present include Hipster Daddy-O and the Handgrenades, the Atomic Fireballs, the Ray Gelato Giants, the Dino Martinis, and Blue Plate Special, among many others.
