AllMusic Review by

With Right Around the Corner, the Persuasions continue their trademark a cappella vocal stylings reminiscent of a 1950s New York street corner. Yet, through their choice of material and interpretation, the group retains a sense of freshness and vitality absent in many other revivalist groups. Though a song such as "Oh, Heavenly Salvation" is an enjoyable, yet standard, choice, covering Frank Zappa's "Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up" or reworking the overt sexuality of "Little Red Rooster" until it is almost a spiritual, shows just how modern and irreverent the Persuasions can be.
