Album Review

This is a superb single-disc distillation of the Platters' biggest hits, with all 15 of their first Top Forty hits, an astonishing run that went from 1955's "Only You (And You Alone)" through 1960's "Harbor Lights" — and adds the more modern soul-pop successes they landed in 1966 and 1967 with "With This Ring" and "I Love You 1000 Times." Admittedly, it lacks a few obscure tracks found on Rhino's 1998 comp Enchanted: The Best of the Platters, although none of the extra songs are among the group's more familiar numbers. (Also, serious enthusiasts might prefer Mercury's two-CD, 50-track The Magic Touch: An Anthology.) Still, this set proves that the Platters recorded some of the finest, and certainly the most successful, pop-doo wop crossover music ever made.

Buck Ram "Grandson" Hasn't got a clue

Whoever the person is that is pretending to be Buck Ram's Grandson doesn't know a thing about The Platters. Only one person can truly be known as the lead singer of The Platters, and that is Tony Williams. All of the great Platters songs you know were originally done by Tony Williams. This album showcases Tony. Monroe Powell was NOT an original Platter. He wasn't even the second lead singer. RIP Tony. You WERE The Platters.


yeah, some of theses singers did have probelems, money problems. Alot of the black doo wop stars wen banrupt because the big white record producers cheated them out of their money. Yeah my mom lived next door in an apartment in new york to the lead singer fo this group for a couple years. great doo wop songs, if you like this genre.

i am the great grand son of Buck Ram

i happen to know of the band and have heard most of there music and they were all dispicalbe people who had many problems i hapen to enjoy the famous Monroe who tours all of the world but mostly in Las Vegas, Monroe is not my favorite lead singer becaus he is my god father but because he was the kindst and truest to the platters while the other older lead singers never apresatied wht my great grand father did for him, but because he is a highly trained singer who can hold his cords and provide beautful music to listen to. He is the third generation lead singer not one of those fakes or wana be's he knew my whole family and worked with my great grandfather till my grandfathers death and still kept close ties to our family. If you like oldies clasics that never seese to amaze you then you will love the platters and if you dont like oldies im sure if you give the platters a chance they will get you to like the oldies and if you can get Monroe Powl's music he sings the same songs by charles but way beter

With classics such as "The Great Pretender," "Only You," and their rendition of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," the Platters were one of the preeminent doo-wop groups of the rock & roll era. Under the guidance of manager and producer Buck Ram, the Platters churned out hit after hit during the 1950s, bridging the gap between more traditional vocal-group stylings and the popular R&B grooves of the early '50s. Their sound was unique, marked by lead singer Tony Williams' powerful vocals and the feminine touch...
