One of their best!

""Comin at Ya" is a real sleeper of a Persuasions album, all too often overlooked. Some fans consider it their most exhilirating, high energy album of all. There are only 11 songs, but each one establishes a distinctive charm and lingering impact. "Don't Let Him Take Your Love" is as potent as anything on their "We Came To Play" album, as is the supercharged "I'll Be Forever Loving You" and "Drip Drop." The group was never in better voice, or sharper harmony than on this 1979 record which features among its eclectic line-up Paul Simon's "Love Me Like A Rock and Elvis's old hit, "Return to Sender." "Comin At Ya" also contains what could be first tenor Jayotis Washington's finest moment on record, the hilarious and infectous "Besame Mucho." While the album might not have as compelling a choice of material as the group's best albums ("Street Corner Symphony," "Chirpin'," "We Came To Play'""Sincerely") it does showcase The Persuasions at their best. Indispensable."
Blah blah blah blah.

"This is not a review. Your Persuasions "personnel" information needs updating. The 1999 Persuasions' line-up consists of Jerry Lawson, Jimmy Hayes, "Sweet Joe" Russell, Jayotis Washington, and brand new members Bernard "B.J." Jones and Raymond Sanders. Herbert "Toubo" Rhoad died in 1988. Source: Music For Little People Staff, which produced "On The Good Ship Lollipop.""
