Before 1969, a’cappella (singing without the use of instrumental accompaniment) was a boring term used to describe barber shop quartets and old-time doo-wop groups. That all changed when Frank Zappa recorded five guys from Brooklyn called, The Persuasions. Together, with lead singer and co-founder Jerry Lawson, The Persuasions made history and influenced a’cappella’s rise to the mainstream. The Jerry Lawson Legacy project explores the history of Jerry Lawson and the legendary Persuasions in chronological order as explained in a biographical commentary by Jerry and special guest host, Julie Lawson. In Episode 2, Jerry Lawson documents his early days in New York and discusses songs from the Persuasions first album. This is an exclusive Blues America feature.
