The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing:The Persuasions
Artist: The Persuasions
Album: Frankly A Capella
Appears On (Mixes): As Promised, The Future!
Song Notes: (http://www.singers.com/persuasions.html) I believe that this album (Frankly A Capella) came partially out of a song they performed for the Zappa’s Universe tribute concert / album after FZ’s death – but it was a natural for them, one way or another. Not only because Zappa was the one who gave them their first big break and produced their first album – but also because the songs chosen to record here had been written out of the same 50s tradition as their music before and since. Honestly, I think these are some of the best performances of FZ’s doo-wop songs, easily outdistancing some of the original recordings. - RobotMonster
