What a group! The Platters were the classiest of the "Doo-Wop" groups but were so much more than just Doo-Wop. The earliest Platters were the best before personnel changes started happening, but all the songs on this CD are true classics with excellent solos, back-up vocals and superb harmony. Makes you want to grab your lover and dance in the dark!

I grew up in the 50's and used to sing along with a lot of records, so I know what the music sounded like. There are 20 songs on this CD, and only 7 of them are the original beautiful recordings. The other 13 songs are sung by someone else, and unrecognizable. Their music quality is very flat and tinny and goes in and out. And there were no samples to listen to. I returned this CD, and am trying to find a good one.
Don't buy this CD. It is MORE than half bad!

I'm no music expert; but I grew up in the 50's -- and I know what these tunes are supposed to sound like. A few of these tracks are excellent -- the way they are supposed to sound; but at least half of this collection is flat and lifeless. I have no idea what the problem is; but many cuts sound like they are bad rehearsal tapes made before these guys perfected their sound. I returned this disc and am looking for another CD -- you should too.

This collection is everything you want, and more! "Only You", "The Great Pretender", "Magic Touch", "Twilight Time" - and 16 more super songs from this super group. A cold night, warm fire, good drink, dog asleep on the rug at your feet, and The Platters serenading - who could ask for more?!?

Smooth and sleek harmonies. Tight harmonies. Singing, I mean real singing that is not found amongst many performers in R&B today. This epitomizes what is meant by "You have to sing for your supper."

The Platters were one of the best vocal groups in the 50s-period. Tony Williams, their lead singer, had one of the best doo-wop voices ever. You should check them out for no other reason then his voice.

Most of the cuts were very familiar and lots of them. Afew were not as popular but well worth listening to. Buy it and keep the oldies alive and introduce them to a new generation.

The music from The Platters was so different; it still sends chills up my spine when I hear
them sing: Only You, The Great Pretender, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes or Harbor Lights.
