Even those not deeply entrenched in the a cappella world know The Persuasions as a tour de force in the music world. We’re honored now to be working with Rensart Records to bring a classic live recording to iTunes for the first time.
“The Persuasions: Live at McCabe’s Guitar Shop” recorded in 1998, and released in 2009 features 19 stellar performances by the veteran singers. The group’s only live nightclub album ever, it’s already received a great deal of critical acclaim. Eric Talley of the Contemporary A cappella Society of America (CASA) said, “If you are involved in a cappella today, plan on being involved in the future, or have been in the past, you need to buy this album.” And Chris Rizik of Soultracks added, “The Persuasions have long been known as strong live performers, and Live at McCabe’s shows them in their glory. Their gritty harmonies are consistently spot-on, and Lawson’s rough-hewn leads are terrific.”
So be sure to check out the entire album on their artist page – don’t miss out on this historic, dynamic album, performed by the original members of the group (Jerry Lawson, Jimmy Hayes, “Sweet Joe” Russell, and Jayotis Washington).
