Publisher's Weekly Review

All hands will want to be on deck for this listening pleasure cruise. Many of the song titles here may be familiar, but the lush harmonies of male a cappella group the Persuasions could not be fresher. For young listeners new to this style of singing, producer Lieb Ostrow has penned the song "A Cappella Fellas," as a snappy introduction: "Our voices are our instruments/ the flute, the harp, the gong/ in harmony together... a vocal symphony." With nary a note of traditional instrumentation, the five rich voices, ranging from basso profundo to baritone, enliven a broad array of favorites, including "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?"; the perennial kid-pleaser "On Top of Spaghetti"; and the title tune, made famous years ago by Shirley Temple. The Persuasions have much experience working with children and it shows on such numbers as "Persuasions' Nursery Rhyme Medley," which includes a silly twist on "Humpty Dumpty": "All the king's horses and all the king's men... had scrambled eggs for breakfast!" The group sometimes shares personal anecdotes, too, making listeners feel as though they are listening to a private concert. Another standout, "Train Song Medley," melds "People Get Ready," "Little Red Caboose," "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad," "Choo-Choo Boogaloo" and "To Stop the Train," with appropriate chug-a-chug sound effects throughout. All ages. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
