The Persuasions: Street Corner Symphony
Dave Marsh, Creem, April 1972
THE PERSUASIONS ceased to be a pleasant, though strange, acappella curiosity with their last album, We Came to Play. That album took a more pop stance than their first, Acappella, which was more an introduction to form than anything else: with its artificial cheers, and female chorus, the first album was more or less a scholarly dissertation on acappella as a form than it was a Persuasions album.
