The Platters All Their Hits on 180g Import 2LP

40 Original Recordings!

The multi-platinum Platters were comprised of founder and naming member Herb Reed, Tony Williams, Paul Robi, Zola Taylor and David Lynch. In 1955, the quintet crashed through the racial divide that existed between black and white artists during America's infamous civil rights era. Their debut hit single "Only You (and You Alone)" which launched The Platters as superstars on the world stage was actually an error. A popular DJ named Alan Freed accidentally played their Mercury Records debut single on-air during a "prime" time that was traditionally reserved for "white artists." The ballad, based on the then groundbreaking Tin Pan Alley sound, became an instant hit with the public and would eventually reach number five on the Pop charts.

Soon after, The Platters released "The Great Pretender," which propelled them to the number one spot on the charts, providing the launch pad for their meteoric rise. As a result they became the first African-American group to achieve international superstardom. Both songs have since been declared songs of the 21st century by the Grammy foundation. With several chart-topping hits and more than 400 recordings, as a foundation, The Platters continue their evolution in the music industry to this day with vocalists Wayne Miller, Valerie Victoria, Frank Pizarro, Cheo Bourne and Music Director Michael Larson.

Vinyl Passion's All Their Hits delivers an astonishing 40-tracks across 2LPs including the aforementioned "Only You (And You Alone)" and "The Great Pretender" plus further definitive fare like "I'm Sorry," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "My Prayer," "Twilight Time," "Harbor Lights," "To Each His Own" and "If I Didn't Care."
