The Platters-Platters-The Great Pretender, Only You, You've Got The Magic Touch

The Platters were formed in 1953, assembled around the vocal talents of Tony Williams, and signed their first recording contract with Federal. Although they were an extremely popular live draw, record success proved elusive, with Federal even deciding that one number, 'Only You', was unsuitable for release. The Platters switched to Mercury in 1955, re-recorded 'Only You' and the rest, as they say, is history. An enormous pop hit when released, it topped the R&B charts and hit #5 on the pop charts. Its sucessor, 'The Great Pretender', fared even better, topping both charts, and both singles proved popular in the UK, hitting the top five. Such single success by an R&B group seldom converted into album sales, but The Platters broke the trend, seein g their debut album make the Top 10 in 1956. There was to be further single success, an ever-changing line-up and legal wrangles as various ex-members tried to go out on the road under the Platters moniker, giving the group one of the most varied histories in R&B. Here though are 21 tracks that effectively kicked off the rock and roll era.

17 - You've got the magic touch
18 - Winner takes all
19 - You'll never never know
