Persuasive Percussion 1966

Persuasive Percussion
Command Records RS 895 SD

From the back cover: The original Persuasive Percussion, the most successful stereo recording ever made, was released by Command Records in 1959. This was Command's very first record, a history-making disc which played a crucial role in the development of stereophonic recording because, for the first time, it demonstrated the untapped musical potentials of stereo.

The percussion series also helped to kick start a Charles E. Murphy percussion album "design trend" that was copied by a number of other labels.

This "tribute" to Command's late 50, early 60s sound features an excellent blend of big band and the playful Command "ping-pong" sound and, of course, stellar Command engineering.

Mentioned in the notes are a few of Command's favorite session men, including Tony Mottola, Phil Kraus, Ed Shaughnessy, Dick Hyman, Walt Levinsky, Doc Severinsen, Phil Bodner, Dave Carey, Don Lamond and Bobby Rosengarden
