Product Description:

The Persuasions: Jerry Lawson, Joseph Russell, Jimmy Hayes, Herbert Rhoad, Jayotis Washington.
Engineers: Edwin Kramer, David Plamer, Eric Malamud.
Includes liner notes by Bim Bam Boom Magazine.
The Persuasions' third album finds the keepers of the doo-wop flame (a major uphill battle back in its day) refurbishing then-contemporary songs like Bob Dylan's "The Man in Me" and Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" in their own gospel-derived style. Similar takes on older R&B songs include the Impressions' classic "People Get Ready," and the Tymes' 1963 hit "So Much in Love," itself a product of an earlier doo-wop revival.
The highlight is a typically gorgeously sung Temptations medley. This makes a seamless connection between the Tempts' '60s soul style of "Don't Look Back," and their early-'70s neo-psychedelic sound of "Cloud Nine."
