sample the album:
"The Persons was a group based on the idea of harmonically interlocking electric guitar riffs and grooves.
We first performed in NYC in the late '70s with Dan Licht, Danny Petrow, James 'Sprocket' Royer and myself.
Subsequent tours were done in Northern Europe with guitarists Nick Kirgo, Franky Doublas, bassist Eric Calmes, and 'cellis Ernst Reijseger.
After two previous recordings, this is a recording of the last incarnation of the group"-Michael Moore, from the liner notes
