The eighth of the group's nine collaborations with producer Richard Perry, Hot Together represented a downturn in the Pointer Sisters' fortunes. The lead single, "Goldmine," charted well on Billboard's R&B and dance charts but only reached #33 on the Hot 100. A second single, the ballad "All I Know Is the Way I Feel," reached #93 on the Hot 100. A third release, "Mercury Rising," only managed an appearance on Billboard's R&B chart. The album's title track is more well-known, having been included in the soundtrack for the Mel Brooks' film Spaceballs and the Richard Dreyfuss film Stakeout; it was also a part of the NBA's late 1980s promotional campaign. Other songs of note include "Set Me Free" (co-written by "Neutron Dance" scribe Allee Willis and featured in the opening scene of Whoopi Goldberg's "Jumpin' Jack Flash") and "My Life" (co-written by actress/comedienne Sandra Bernhard). The album was remastered and issued on CD, with bonus tracks, in 2011 by Big Break Records.
