Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
The Persuasions' fourth album finds the harmony-vocal group still fanning the doo-wop flame (a major uphill battle in 1972), refurbishing then- contemporary songs like Bob Dylan's "Three Angels" (which both opens and closes the album) and Bill Withers's "Lean On Me"in their own gospel-derived style. On the more old-school side, there are remakes of doo-wop classics like the Moonglows' "Ten Commandments of Love" alongside such pre-doo-wop standards as "The Lord's Prayer." Highlights include "T.A. Thompson," an anti-Vietnam war song that (as implausibly as it sounds) gets a terrific doo-wop arrangement, and "When Jesus Comes," a gorgeously sung return to the group's gospel roots.
