The Persuasions: We Still Ain't Got No Band (1973)


MCA Records, MCA-326

The Persuasions are an a capella group with more than two dozens records to their name. Their early albums are a mix of gospel, soul, and pop songs, but in the aughts, they began recording a series of tribute albums (The Beatles, Frank Zappa, U2, The Grateful Dead). Many of their albums are on CD, but this 1973 release is not.

I haven't heard a bad Persuasions record, so I pick them up whenever I find them. I bought this LP at Antone's in Austin, Texas for around $4. The cover is a bit worn, but the record is in great shape.

From the LP:
"Jerry Lawson - Lead, Baritone
Jimmy Hayes - Bass, Tenor
Joseph Russell - Tenor, Lead
Jayotis Washington - Tenor
Herbert Rhoad - Baritone"
