Album Description
The 1984 album by a cappella princes the Persuasions was their most exciting and varied in years. The songs range from the nostalgic (a medley of "Under the Boardwalk" and "Sand in My Shoes") to the contemporary (a six-minute tour-de-force rendition of Candi Staton's "Victim").

CD Reviews

This album has some weird but wonderful song choices.
05/21/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a kind of Persuasions classic, because it features their concert standards, "Under the Boardwalk," and the autobiographical "Still Ain't Got No Band." But it also has some weird and wonderful song choices. I mean, The Partridge Family? Yes, the Persuasions sing The Partridge Family's "I Woke Up In Love This Morning," and make it a heavyweight tune. This is the only album to feature a female Persuasion---Bev Roehler, who sang the high stuff on more than half the tracks. Oh yeah, and Paul Simon's "Slip Sliding Away" is pretty good, too."
