COVER NOTES:


The Platters dominated the record charts in the 1950's. They became the most successful singing group from that golden era of music. They were also the first Rock 'N' Roll group to record a Top-10 album. Guided by manager and songwriter Buck Ram, the Platters highly polished presentation and buttery smooth vocals sold 3 million LP's and 16 gold singles. The Platters started out predominantly as R&B and Gospel performers. They signed their first record deal in 1953 with Syd Nathan of Federal Records in Cincinnati, Ohio. Federal had recorded other R&B acts, and the Platters' musical format seemed to fit in well at Federal. Although the group would change record companies, as well as personnel, at various stages in their career, their trendsetting recordings always exuded that unique "Platters" quality that put them at the top of their game. They recorded their first big hit in 1955. "Only You" lingered on the record charts for 30 weeks and climbed to #1 on the R&B charts and #5 on the pop charts. In 1956 they recorded "the Great Pretender". It was the first R&B song in history that hit #1 on the pop charts. The song was also a hit in England which brought the Platters international recognition and resulted in a world-wide tour. They had two other giant hits in 1956, "The Magic Touch" and "My Prayer". In 1958 their song "Twilight Time" was debuted on American Bandstand. It, too, was a #1 seller. In the late 1950's and early 60's the Platters recorded other chart-topping hits such as "Harbor Lights", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", and "I Love You 1000 times". Many of the songs that the Platters recorded during those early years of Rock 'N' Roll are now considered classics. In 1990, these great icons of American music were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
