Genre: Rock

New mastering of the most rockin' tracks by The Platters, 1955-1962. Also contains many dance versions of such standards as 'On A Slow Boat To China', 'Sixteen Tons' and Cole Porter's 'In The Still Of The Night'. Tony Williams (tenor vocal), David Lynch (tenor vocal), Zola Taylor (female vocal), Paul Robi (baritone vocal), and Herb Reed (bass vocal) - The Platters! 'During the mid-to-late 1950s, the ultra-polished vocal group was the epitome of cool, velvet-smooth harmonizing as they cranked out an avalanche of smash ballads under the supervision of manager Buck Ram. Filmmakers cast them as the relatively safe and sedate antidote to the otherwise steamy sounds dished up in the memorable films 'Rock Around the Clock,' 'The Girl Can't Help It,' 'Rock All Night,' 'Carnival Rock,' and 'Girls Town,' their segments allowing overheated teenagers a chance to cool down a bit in their sweaty theater seats.' 'Yet a close examination of their mammoth catalog for Chicago's Mercury Records reveals a surprising number of up-tempo gems that entirely legitimize the concept of this collection. You may not recognize all of the titles at first glance, but taken as a whole they confirm that The Platters could indeed rock whenever Ram allowed them to. They'd started out as an R&B vocal group before magnificently crossing over to the pop realm.' (Bill Dahl)
