"You’ve gotta watch the charming and priceless video below. Background: according to legend, Frank Zappa first heard The Persuasions over the phone, from the street corner they were singing on in Brooklyn, and on the spot the “Joe’s Garage” composer invited them out to California to record. Thus Frank Zappa “discovered” The Persuasions, as it were. Jerry Lawson picks it up from there, and explains how perplexed he was at some of Zappa’s music, what it was like for an a cappella to open for a Zappa crowd — with a gospel tune. Make sure you hang in ’til the end."
