Heaven knows how many Platters best-of compilations have hit the racks through the years, though the sum no doubt falls far below the total number of singers who've performed under the Platters banner. (At one point there were something like 125 sanctioned versions of the vocal group playing parties and conventions.) That said, this 20-song collection does a fine job of covering the group's 1955 through 1967 prime. They're all here: "Only You," the quintet's biggest hit; "My Prayer," the ultimate get-to-third-base make-out tune; and the doo-wop cover of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." With tenor Tony Williams's soaring tenor accented by rich four-part harmonies, the Platters will forever represent '50s ballad singing at its purest and prettiest. --Steven Stolder

Disappointed in this recording....A cassette of the Platters "greatest hits" that I have had for some time is much better in the quality and tonality of the music recorded...On this CD several of the original recordings did not include the opening bars to some of the numbers....

For me the Platters were the best of the 1950's. The fine lyrics & smooth music were delivered with a caressing chorus. "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, My Prayer, Only You, Twilight Time, & The Magic Touch are among the five most beautiful & timeless songs ever produced in the English language. Fine sound quality, good photos, & liner notes. The only flaw is that I wish they had included a few more tunes. This type of music has stood the test of time.

This is the Platters original group that I have heard since I was 10 years old. This is the music you will hear from those oldies' radio broadcasts. I'm going to buy two more of the same ENCHANTED CDs. One for the car and one to give to my father as a gift to replace the old record we wore out long ago.

If you could have only one Platters album this would be the one to have. True classic "ORIGINAL PLATTERS" the way they sounded back in the 50's only better-no skips or pops-as with the old vinyl LP's. You will enjoy this one.!

If you're looking for the original sounds of the songs you danced to this is it! I have the other Platters recordings as well and the original soloist has been replaced in the later recordings and it's just not the same. My favorite song was/is "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". When you wanted something something special to hold that sweet young thing in your arms on the dance floor, this was IT!
