When first released in 1959, PERSUASIVE PERCUSSION was probably the first to put stereo discs on the map bringing to light the startling and innovative musical aspects of stereo sound on records. The music was brilliantly recorded and arranged with great imagination and infinite care to bring out the whole spectrum of sound on one's stereo equipment. Originated and produced by Enoch Light, the album presented an entirely new concept in the recording of percussion instruments performed by Terry Snyder and The All Stars which included talent such as Tony Mottola, Dick Hyman and Willie Rodriguez.

PERSUASIVE PERCUSSION sold half a million discs by 1961, thereafter averaging 150,000 sales per year, passing the million mark by 1965. The disc with its stereo "ping-pong" effects was considered a "starter" disc and must-have by stereo enthusiasts enabling them to adjust and balance their equipment.

PERSUASIVE PERCUSSION Volume 2 was issued in 1960 and on this CD release we combine both volume 1 and 2 giving the listener a total of 24 tracks.

To modern ears, Enoch Light is known as one of the forbears of the art deco "space-age bachelor pad" scene of the late '50s and early '60s. This is due to Light's technical collaborations with Terry Snyder's Command All-Stars. Although once a big-band leader and musical arranger in the 1930s and 1940s, Light started Command Records, one of the first audiophile-oriented labels. His primary innovations involved extreme stereo mixing as well as recording onto 35 millimeter film, as opposed to the traditional magnetic-based tape. The results allowed for greater fidelity as well as a more permanent and stable method of archiving. Persuasive Percussion (1959) is the long-player that started off the multi-volume releases, which also boasted the companion series Provocative Percussion. Each of the LPs included a dozen interpretations of popular music standards with highly stylized arrangements centering on full-bodied organ solos as well as significant augmentation from bongos, maracas, and a variety of additional hand-percussion instruments. The melodies were often given light and easy listening interpretations featuring Dick Hyman (keyboards) and Tony Motolla (guitar).

Review by Lindsay Planer, Allmusic.com

Enoch Light (1907-1978) was the conductor of his own orchestra, The Light Brigade, since 1935. He was president of Grand Award label and managing director for Command Records, for whom he produced a long string of hit stereo percussion albums in the 1960s, which were considered as audiophile collector’s items. Enoch’s studio musicians were variously billed as Terry Snyder And The All-Stars, and the Command All-Stars.

Enoch Light has 26 charted albums, starting with I Want To Be Happy Cha Cha’s on the Grand Award label, followed by his famous Persuasive Percussion which hit Number 1 for 13 weeks in 1960. There were two very distinctive features: 1) the album covers, which usually featured black round dots (if you have seen the album cover, you will know what I mean), and 2) the ping-pong effect of the first stereo sound.

Sepia Records has just released Persuasive Percussion Volumes 1 and 2 on one CD. There are 24 songs. The audio is fantastic: nice and clean with vibrant sound. Sepia Records have done an excellent job in digital remastering, using 24 bit and CEDAR audio noise reduction system. Great job!

Sepia Records from UK has done a great job in releasing many oldies on CDs, like Roman Guitar by Tony Mottola, Lawrence Welk’s Calcutta/Yellow Bird, Through The Years Vol. 1-10 by Bing Crosby, Billy Vaughn’s Orange Blossom Special/Berlin Melody and Stardust/Tenderly by Pat Boone. If you are interested, do visit their website or Amazon.co.uk. Great place to shop for UK releases, instead of paying exuberant import prices here!

The main advantage of this set is in the sound, very well remastered. But if you want more values and more of Enoch Light, there is another set called 5 Top-Five Albums by Enoch Light, where Persuasive Percussion, Volumes 1, 2 and 3, and Provocative Percussion, Volumes 1 and 2, are found in a 3 CD set collection on Goldies label.

The above set is highly recommended, mainly for the great audio for two audiophile albums of Enoch Light.

Review by Dr. Joseph Lee, Amazon.co.uk


Recalling the late Fifties and the introduction of stereophonic sound, the two albums (PERSUASIVE PERCUSSION - Volumes 1 & 2) included on this CD were originally released in 1959 and 1960 respectively. They were amongst many such orchestral samplers released to audition the spacious and startling advantages of the new technology compared with previous monaural or monophonic sound reproduction.

Terry Snyder (1916-1963) was a drummer/percussionist who worked with the Paul Whiteman, Jimmy Dorsey and Benny Goodman orchestras before moving on to recording sessions during the Forties and Fifties. He was hired to produce four albums for Enoch Light's Command record label with the intention that the instrumentation should produce an expanded wall-to-wall separation and he utilised different combinations - a large orchestra with full reed, brass and rhythm sections and three percussionists; a small combo consisting of single sax, trumpet, trombone and rhythm section, plus a small group built around a four man percussion section, two guitars, accordion, bass and piano.

With two dozen tracks to marvel at, titles include familiar numbers like THE BREEZE AND I, LOVE IS A MANY SPENDORED THING, BLUE TANGO, BRAZIL and I'M IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE. Whilst most collectors' have lived long enough with stereo to become somewhat jaded, the effects are impressive; even more so when listened through headphones. This welcome release will encourage those with worn vinyl copies to update to Sepia's remastered CD clarity. Notes are very detailed with information on each individual track and presumably the other two volumes will appear in the future.
