Press - The Platters - Rock - vintage rock
The Platters were, without doubt, one of the biggest selling vocal groups of the rock'n'roll era on both sides of the Atlantic. Famed for both their ballads and the singing of lead vocalist Tony Williams, they cut their share of uptempo dance numbers, and Germany's Bear Family have collected them together for this foot-tapping collection. Stand-outs for me include the familiar Bark, Battle and Ball, On a Slow Boat to China, and Darktown Strutters' Ball. It includes a 36-page booklet to make you an instant expert on Platters' matters.
