Exposé’s “Point Of No Return (Rhythm Scholar Deluxe Edition Reconstruction)”: Idolator Remix Premiere
Long before Fifth Harmony, Little Mix and even Destiny’s Child were holding court in the land of music’s most on-fire female acts, one Latin-tinged outfit ruled the airwaves with their pop-freestyle crossover hits: Exposé. In fact, the Miami trio became the first group to land four Top 10 hits off a debut album, when their 1987 LP Exposure produced such smash singles as “Come Go With Me,” “Point Of No Return,” “Come Go With Me” and chart-topper “Seasons Change.”
Exposure is set for a two-disc re-release on January 19, 2015, via the Cherry Pop imprint of label Cherry Red. Ahead of that, Idolator is premiering the Rhythm Scholar Deluxe Edition Reconstruction remix of Exposé’s classic hit “Point Of No Return.”

Group members Ann Curless, Jeanette Jurado and Gioia Bruno jointly tell us the following about this special version of “Point Of No Return,” which is exclusive to Idolator and will not feature on the re-issue of Exposure:
“We are so thrilled to be able to celebrate 28 years as Exposé with the release of the deluxe edition of our debut album, Exposure. When we originally recorded it in 1987, we came together as strangers and became sisters in song! As a thank you to our fans and readers of Idolator, we would like to give you a little post-Christmas gift. It’s a newly re-worked and re-edited version of our hit single ‘Point Of No Return’. We hope you enjoy it. See you on tour! Happy New Year!”
The upcoming reissue was a very special labor of love that was produced by Vinny Vero for So Hip It Hurts Productions, who is no stranger to lending his hand to album re-releases.
“When I sit down to produce a reissue, I try to think about what the fans of an artist or group would want,” Vero tells Idolator. “With the deluxe edition of Exposure, I think I delivered on the promise of giving fans the perfect historical audio and visual document of a groundbreaking album. Many people don’t realize that Exposé and their debut album brought dance music back to US radio stations after the post-disco drought at the beginning of the ’80s. I’m thrilled that Ann, Jeanette and Gioia made the collection extra special by contributing their personal stories to the project.”
