Album Notes
This rare 1997 album "Stayed Away Too Long" by the Persuaders is a classic jewel because it is featuring the last original member, the late Thomas (Tommy} Hill. The album was sponsored and introduce through the efforts of Robert Poindexter, Jacqueline Poindexter and fellow Persuader,Vincent Ballard; Robert and Jackie wrote and produced almost all of the songs. Vincent has been instramental as a Persuaders writer since 1976 and as a manager / member since 1987. Robert and Jackie along with Richard Poindexter Wrote and produced the Persuaders classic "Thin Line Between Love and Hate." The Persuaders are like a fine wine that has aged and mellowed. The group was formed in the late 1960's as "The Internationals. They had a local hit called "Give a Damn," written and produced by the Poindexters, but they were officially launch in 1971 with the release of their first album "Thin LineBetween Love and Hate"on the Poindexters' "Win or Lose Records" label. The initial members were the late Smokey Douglas Scott, Willy B. Holland, B.J Barnes and the late Charles Stargell. The song went gold (which was a million units then) and the group became world famous!. By the second album Tommy Hill and John Tobias took the place of B.J Barnes and Charles Stargell. The second album entitled "The Persuaders" included such hits as "Bad, Bold Beautiful Girl, Peace In The Valley Of Love and Trying Girls Out." It was Produced by Robert and Jacqueline, minus Richard who left the writing/producing team for religious reasonsat the time. Through the years the Persuaders reinvented themselves many times with group members coming and going. The last original member "Mr Thomas Hill died from leukemia in 2002 leaving the current members " Mr Vincent Ballard, Sylvester J. Jones and Ron Cartier to carry on. They eventually added a young seasoned singer named T. Marvin to complete the group. Songs written by the Poindexters for the Persuaders have been covered through the years by many famous artists including: Annie Lennox, Chrissie Hyndes & the Pretenders, Will Smith, Jay Z, H Town; and Even Martin Lawrence did his own movie version of "Thin Line Between Love and Hate" which grossed over 50 million dollars world wide! "Stayed Away too Long" gives the world the last chance to hear an original member on the original label; it certainly is a MUST HAVE" for your collection items.
