Musicor Years [Kent]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
The Platters had splintered into several different groups operating under the same name by the mid-'60s, with former members Paul Robi, Herb Reed, Tony Williams, and Edward "Sonny" Turner all leading versions of the Platters, with a rumored 120 different touring outfits using the name into the next decade.
