Persuasive Percussion

"Persuasive Percussion", Command's initial release in 1959, was probably the first to put stereo discs on the map. It brought to light the startling musical aspects of stereo sound on records, and was considered a "starter" disc by new stereo purchasers. It sold half a million copies by 1961, thereafter averaging 150,000 sales per year, passing the million mark by 1965.

"Persuasive Percussion Volume 2" was released in 1960.

Terry Snyder, born in New York, started playing the drums at high school. He won a gold medal on graduation and a music scholarship. Starting work at 16, he played with big bands such as Paul Whiteman, Jimmy Dorsey and Benny Goodman before coming instrumentalist in 1943 on the Perry Como show, an association of long duration. Snyder did freelance work for almost every label in America on sessions conducted by most of the big names including Percy Faith, Hugo Winterhalter, Leonard Bernstein and Ralph Flanagan. He was one of the first exponents of "ping-pong" music, but his fame undoubtedly rests with his extremely successful "Persuasive Percussion" albums, made under the skilled direction of Command's 'Mister Stereo' Enoch Light. He died in 1963.
