Sunshine . . . in the Afternoon
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".|
