Reseña de álbum

A double-disc, 50-track extravaganza from one of the paragons of smooth soul, The Magic Touch: An Anthology is the most complete look at the Platters, barring only Bear Family's 1994 box set Four Platters and One Lovely Dish. Between 1955 and 1962, the quintet recorded 36 entries that reached the pop charts and they're all here, led by the ones that absolutely must be on any effective Platters compilation: "Only You (And You Alone)," "The Great Pretender," "(You've Got) The Magic Touch," "My Prayer," "Twilight Time," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Harbor Lights," and "Red Sails in the Sunset." That leaves plenty of room for the type of material collectors drool over, like the previously unreleased "Hula Hop" and a rare Tony Williams solo record ("When You Return"), plus obscure Platters versions of songs made famous by others ("The Glory of Love," "Goodnight Sweetheart, It's Time to Go," "My Old Flame," even an enjoyable stab at "Sixteen Tons"). It's all delivered in the sweetest sound heard yet, with a lengthy booklet and many superb photos. It's the ultimate Platters anthology, and it's everything this important group deserves.

THE REAL DEAL

There are so many fake-Platters on the market, with the help of your prior reviews, I landed on the Magic Touch Anthology album and found the Real Deal!! While some other lead singers do a credible job, nobody can touch Tony Williams and the difference is huge especially when you hear to the high-notes in My Prayer and Ebb Tide. Williams is the greatest singer of a generation and that is why he was the lead and Herb Reed sang backup. Zola Taylor, the original, is also featured on a few cuts. This is THE PLATTERS as we all remember them... a great buy with 50 seclections for twenty bucks!! Thanks to the previous reviewers for leading me to this selection.

Classiest Rock 'n Soulers

The Platters surfaced in the late 50s and became the premier and first acceptable black rock group on white r 'n r stations, while they recorded for Mercury. They were welcomed into your white home on Ed Sullivan and in full Technicolor films like "The Girl Can't Help It." They were pure class, always in tuxedos or sharp suits and established a dress sense for doo-woppers and were also the first mixed (male & female) r 'n r artists with Zola Taylor. Lead vocalist Tony Williams had the sweetest sound with an enormous vocal range, while the smallest man in the group, Herb, had the deepest voice. They had smash hit after smash hit and most of them are here and they seem to be the original recordings.

The Best I've Heard So Far...

This two disc set really is the BEST of the Platters, and by the Originals I may add, you won't be dessapointed - I sure wasn't.

De todos los grupos doo wop, los Platters se considera el más romántico. Comenzaron como grupo de doo wop en Los Angeles con escasa identidad propia hasta que Back Ram –manager, productor y compositor de canciones– los convirtió en uno de los éxitos más perdurables y lucrativos de todos los tiempos. Con Ram escribiéndoles canciones que hoy son clásicos, el conjunto pronto fue un éxito del pop y el R&B, ganando a la postre la distinción de ser el primer grupo negro de la era que alcanzó la cima de...
