Long after the doo-wop sound faded from the charts, the Persuasions kept the torch burning with vibrant renditions of songs from every imaginable source. The group reached the peak of its popularity when they were part of Joni Mitchell's Shadows and Light tour in the late 1970s. This "Perfect 10" collection focuses on classic repertoire from the 1950s and 60s, brought to a deeper and more soulful new life by these spellbinding a cappella masters, who "still ain't got no band." Songs include "Crying in the Chapel," "Let Them Talk," and "Return to Sender" as well as Al Green's "Let's Get Married" in a medley with Harvey Fuqua's "Sincerely," the gospel nugget "Ain't That Good News," and Sam Cooke's "That's Heaven to Me."
"A cappella sensations the Persuasions have been wowing audiences since they first appeared on the scene with their debut album A Cappella on Frank Zappa's Bizarre imprint…. This is a terrific little compilation for the money."—All Music Guide
