The Persuaders

This group made a pair of marvelous heartache ballads in 1971, but have the unfortunate legacy of having their finest cuts turned into pop hits via covers. Lead singer Douglas Scott, whose nickname appropriately was "Smokey," Willie Holland, James Barnes, and Charles Stodghill formed in New York in 1969. They signed with Atlantic in the early '70s and had their lone R&B chart-topper in 1971, the shattering classic "Thin Line Between Love & Hate." It was also their only gold single. The follow-up was nearly as strong; "Love's Gonna Pack Up (And Walk Out)" reached number eight on the R&B charts, but had no crossover appeal. They continued on Win & Lose until 1973, then moved to Atco, where "Some Guys Have All the Luck" was a number seven R&B single in 1973. It was their final hit, though they kept recording until the late '70s, doing their last session for Calla. Besides the Pretenders re-doing "Thin Line Between Love & Hate," Rod Stewart had a Top Ten pop hit with his version of "Some Guys Have All the Luck" in 1984. ~ Ron Wynn

My jam! You are so correct msinglet58! Why do black artists have to always cross over, to be successful? They sell millions in the black community and that is enough! I was a young teen when this came out! Memories!

Thus song never needed any cross over appeal what so ever to be classic hit.

Artists like this are a thing of the past. Meat suits and drug dealer/cop killer mumblings are all that sells anymore. It has nothing to do with color or race. Spears coudnt record a note with out total electronic voice manipulation . Heart tugging, true musically talented expression is of no value in todays market.

I'm new to Pandora and I'm finding there is much they don't have. It might just have to do with the cost of royalties. Maybe they can afford certain songs and not others or they are going to pick the very popular ones and not the lesser known hardcore fan favorites. I was looking for The Persuaders - Some Guys Have All The Luck. No dice.
Report as inappropriate
someone tell me why the only Persuaders song the genome plays is thin line between love and hate?
Why no Bad Bold and Beautiful Girls or Peace in the Valley of Love or Some Guys have all the luck?

I agree with the people with their (comments). I don't think I will ever hear music like that again. The early and mid 70's will never be forgotten. We will never see those years again, and we won't hear music like that again... If you need to find your music, songs, groups etc. Pandora put's it out there! : )
