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.See more details below

Overview

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.
