This Christmas album represents the Platters (minus original lead singer Tony Williams who departed in 1960) as recorded in 1963.
I picked this album up after having bought a 1990's album by some ensemble of the Platters containing only 1 original member and sounding nothing like the Platters at all. The CD was packaged with a picture of the 1950s members but the arrangements and singers sounded nothing like the hit 50's group.
As a Christmas record this album is actually quite fun and actually sounds like The Platters. The best songs are the slow numbers: White Christmas, Silent Night and For Auld Lang Syne, produced and performed in the style of their great 50's ballads.
The album also features original members bass singer Herb Reed (now the ONLY member of the current Platters) on Rudolf and Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and Zola "The Dish" Taylor on All I want For Christmas...
As all good Christmas albums need some novelties, these actually work, as do the unique upbeat arrangements on Jingle Bells and others.
Don't be fooled by cheap imitations. Get this Platters Xmas album!

Format: Audio CD
This Christmas album by the Platters was originally released in 1963. This was one of the last albums that they made for Mercury Records. Incidently, their producer Buck Ram was the co-writer of the Christmas classic "I'll Be Home For Christmas", which unsurprisingly is included here. The Platters were one of the most important vocal groups of the early rock and roll era, but this album doesn't rock very much (with the exception of the redundantly titled "Jingle Bells Jingle"). Most of the songs are accompanied by strings, with "rock" instruments pushed into the background. But that's fine, because the songs still turned put pretty well. Nothing earth-shatteringly original here, just well sung Christmas songs. And there's certainly nothing wrong with that.

The cover misleads the buyer into believing that the CD is the original Platters, when in fact it is not. It almost resembles a photo copy of an original cover that was put in place to deceive the buyer.
