1959-1961 were very busy years for Command Records, and its owner / originator and record producer Enoch Light. Releasing all four volumes of Persuasive Percussion within this time, as well as Volumes 1 – 3 of Provocative Percussion (Volume 4 came out in 1962), the label, and mastermind Mr. Light, damn-near defined the Space Age Pop sound, while offered amazing, minimalist album covers in the process. If you’ve ever wanted to fill your bachelor pad with the persuasive and provocative sounds of Space Age Pop, we strongly recommend either (both) of these collections.

I have several of these in my collection.I’m really impressed by the quality of the pressings and sound.
I read somewhere that this series was used to test audio equipment like a stereo test disc would. I can’t imagine what the retail of one of these albums would have been in 1960.
