The Pointer Sisters, "Don't It Drive You Crazy"

If they weren't yet the Richard Perry directed "Linda Ronstadt, in triplicate, with a beat" described by Xgau, in 1977 the Pointer Sisters were only a year away from fully embracing popdisco. "Don't It Drive You Crazy" from that years Blue Thumb album "Having a party" is almost impossibly lush funk. Shimmering strings, synth twizzles, Wah Wah Watson and a lyric that announces

I know i make it hard
but i don't care

a little later the poor guy (heh) is reminded to take his socks off.
