With this recording The Persuasions flirted with the "big break." It actually made the charts. "Buffalo Soldier," "Temptations Jam," "People Get Ready" and "Christian's Automobile" are probably the most copied of the ten songs, but the whole album is a treasure. A little story told by Jimmy Hayes puts in perspective the difficulty The Persuasions faced in striving for popular acceptance. He tells of one record company president who signed them and in confusion admitted that he didn't know what to do with them or how to promote their music. He loved their singing but didn't even know what a cappella was! All of us who love a cappella music owe these guys a debt of gratitude, for they spent their lives keeping it alive. For a long time they were the only ones, and now it's thriving once again it's great to have them get the recognition they deserve.
