The Robert Cray Band : Strong Persuader,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен.

Strong Persuader is the fifth studio album by American blues singer and guitarist Robert Cray. It was recorded by Cray at the Los Angeles studios Sage & Sound and Haywood's with producers Bruce Bromberg and Dennis Walker, before being released on November 17, 1986, by Mercury Records and Hightone Records. Strong Persuader became his mainstream breakthrough and by 1995 it had sold over two million copies. The record was later ranked on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 80's.

The set that made Cray a pop star, despite its enduring blues base. Cray's smoldering stance on "Smoking Gun" and "Right Next Door" rendered him the first sex symbol to emerge from the blues field in decades, but it was his innovative expansion of the genre itself that makes this album a genuine 1980s classic. Nothing but a Woman" boasts an irresistible groove pushed by the Memphis Horns and some metaphorically inspired lyrics, while "I Wonder" and "Guess I Showed Her" sizzle with sensuality.

Robert Cray is both a spectacular guitarist and a great singer. This is such a good album. All the songs are really good. But the whole album is great.

Strong Persuader 1986 Robert Cray - guitar, vocals Richard Cousins - bass David Olson - drums Boe - keyboards (with the Memphis Horns). Arguably the classic Robert Cray album of the 1980s, Strong Persuader marked the transition of a musician from little national or international recognition, to a musician with widespread appeal. It's little wonder that an album such as Strong Persuader truly propelled Cray into the limelight. Cray's strong vocals support the guitar playing nicely, and clearly the outstanding track for many would be 'Smoking Gun'

Silver Globol
His third release, Strong Persuader, produced a Grammy Award, and the single "Smokin' Gun" gave him name recognition to a wider audience. Cray was an opening act for the great stars. In the early 1990s his name was ever connected with his soul voice, clean guitar work and an innovative blues sound. Cray has Fender Guitars (Telecasters and Stratocasters), and played in a band that usually consisted of a bass, drums, keyboard, saxophone and trumpet.
