Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2006-02-07 
Since 1962 the Persuasions sing a rhymthic, a cappella harmony doo-wop . Frank Zappa helped them early in their career and they dedicated a CD Frankly A Cappella to him. This time they put a spiritual emphasis on the songs of U2. All tracks are great. Play your favorite U2 songs and enjoy GREAT voices. Done in a church in NYC in three days, no mixing, no overdubs. The Persuasions say " we still ain't got no band".
****1: 4: 23 great doo-wop " Even Better Than The Real Thing"
****2: 4:43 simply GREAT voices " Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"
*****3: 4:05 Birdland, Coltrane, Lady Day "Angel Of Harlem"
4: 5:10 so simple, such a great sound.
5: 5:14 so simple, such a great sound. Great doo-wop, Gospel
6: 4:46 great doo-wop, great harmonizing "Stuck In a Moment You Can't Get Out Of"
****7: 4: 22 bluesy "When Love Comes To Town"
8: 4:23 great harmonizing "Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World"
****9: 3:36 great doo-wop spiritual to Martin Luther King
