Editorial Reviews

(CD deluxe digipac with 40-page booklet, 33 songs and over 89 minutes of music) No vocal group dominated the American pop charts during the second half of the 1950s like The Platters. Though rock 'n' roll was ascending with Elvis, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard, The Platters stayed on top by going in the opposite direction. They crooned majestic ballads showcasing the stratospheric lead tenor of Tony Williams: Only You (And You Alone), The Great Pretender, My Prayer, Twilight Time, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes.

The Ballads Of The Platters contains all of those beloved classics and a great many more. 30 of this jam-packed disc's 33 selections hail from the quintet's vast MERCURY RECORDS catalog, the other three are rarities culled from their pre-stardom days at FEDERAL RECORDS. Once they settled in at MERCURY, the Platters concentrated on gorgeous balladry. When they eased into one of their unforgettable hits, teens and adults alike swooned. Quality crosses all boundaries.

With BEAR FAMILY's usual attention to detail - in-depth liner notes by compiler Bill Dahl, a load of vintage photos, and full discography - Ballads Of The Platters is the ultimate single-disc overview of one of the top vocal groups of the 1950s. They effortlessly transcended classification as they climbed the pop and R&B charts time and again, and their thrilling ballads are sure to raise the same goose bumps they did when they first hit the airwaves!

Thank you so much what a Magic Platters CD it is one of
the best CD's I have brought lately and the quality of the
sound on this CD is just Magic it is so clear if your not a
Platters fan then after listening to this one you most certainly
will be.

The Platters were one of the best groups of the fifties and the
sixties is it any wonder long after they have gone that their music
lives on they were just Magic.

I would like to add to this something about this CD and that
is I have found that I have had trouble playing it since I
played it the last time as it wound not play on my CD player
and I took it to my friends place and I have tried playing it
in my car and it will not plat at all so is their any reason
why it will not play and could you please find out for me,
other than that it is a magic CD.

Morris
