Review:
The Persuasions, premiere a cappella soulsters since 1961, turn out a delightful first children's album and bring their distinctive harmonies and a joyful and loving spirit to new children's songs and classics. Baritone lead singer Jerry Lawson, tenor "Sweet" Joe Russell, bass Jimmy Hayes, tenor Jayotis Washington and baritone Bernard "B.J." Jones (a former Drifter) are joined by The Lollipop Kids Chorus--also a cappella. The result is tender enchantment. Hayes' deep lead vocal is unforgettable, especially in "Teddy Bears' Picnic." Lawson and the rest treat "My Daddy Do, Too," by Dan Conley ("Yes, I know my Mommy love me, my Daddy do, too"), with aching gentleness; and they offer "I Love You (There's No Doubt About It)" with absolute conviction. Other selections include: "On the Good Ship Lollipop," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," the original "A Cappella Fellas" and the doo-wop-style "Persuasions' Nursery Rhyme Medley."
