Finally, a compilation that does 'The Platters' justice. Although not comphrensive, there are four tracks missing to my scant knowledge of this great groups Mercury recordings, but there are 88 glorious others to enjoy. Tony Williams in my opinion is one of the greatest singers ever, and stands alongside other such singers as Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Sam Cooke. As these tracks are now in the public domain I feared for the quality of this package but overall it's a quality item. The cd's are housed in a card sleeve, however, on the plus side the sleeve has label scans, lp sleeves and pics of the group printed on it. There's a great 24 page colour booklet. The tracks themselves sound great, all the top 50 hits are on here with B sides and some album tracks. On cd 3 the version of 'To each his own' is an odd mix not the one I'm use to, also the version of 'Harbour Lights' is without the beginning section of - chimes and sea noises etc. why? Overall, a couple of niggles but the majority of tracks sound great as does Tony Williams of course. Buy this and you'll be in 'Heaven on earth'.

Format: Audio CD
Throughout the golden age of Rock & Roll, when vocal groups numbered the many thousands, one harmony ensemble stood head and shoulders above all others: the Platters. This essential 3CD set features all of the group's major hits for Mercury Records from the period when they reigned supreme. Brilliant sound quality and beautiful packaging only add to the splendour of the music, which predominantly features with crystal clear tenor of Tony Williams. Aside from the numerous international hits (including 4 US Number Ones) are tens of superb lesser known gems that will surprise and delight all but the group's most fervent fans. If you only ever buy one Platters CD collection in your lifetime, this should be it!

I have many Platters' CDs at home but bought this because it has "Where" on it. Wonderful voices and lovely songs.

If you're a Platters fan then this is serious stuff. Every single, album and ep release can be found on this great cd. Beautifully packaged and great sound quality recordings make this a fantastic collectors item.
