9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 April 2009
Format: Audio CD
Celebrating 60 years of Atlantic Records, this 2007 Warner/Rhino set is part of a large series of budget-priced compilations offering generous amounts of classic music for peanuts money.

With all 20 tracks remastered to great sound throughout, "Platinum" gives you 16 soul songs from their 3 albums on the label along with 4 rare non-album 7" single sides. The inlay is basic and lacking in details at this price, so here's a breakdown of what's on what (52:35 minutes)....

USA Albums:
"Tighten Up", May 1968 Stereo LP on Atlantic SD-8181
(CD Tracks 1, 15, 18 and 20)
"I Can't Stop Dancing", 1968 Stereo LP on Atlantic SD-8204
(CD Tracks 2, 3, 4, 5, 13 and 19)
"There's Gonna Be A Showdown", August 1969 Stereo LP on Atlantic SD-8226
(CD Tracks 6, 7, 8, 9, 14 and 16)

USA 7" Singles:
Track 10 is "A World Without Music", 1970 on Atlantic 2693 [A, Non-Album Track]
("Here I Go Again" was it's B-side - but it was also issued as an A in the UK on Atlantic K 10210 in September 1972 and charted at number 11)
Track 11 is "Don't Let The Music Slip Away", 1970 on Atlantic 2721 [A, Non-Album Track]
Track 12 is "Wrap It Up", December 1970 on Atlantic 2768 [A, Non-Album Track]
Track 17 is "Dog Eat Dog", April 1968 on Atlantic 2478 [Non-Album Track, B-side to "Tighten Up"]

Forgotten gems include "Here I Go Again" and "Wrap It Up" - both are sort of Chi-Lites meets Motown dancers - really excellent. "Do The Choo Choo" is awful - a poor attempt at a dance craze after the number one success of "Tighten Up" on both sides of the pond. "Dog Eat Dog" - the rare non-LP B-side of their first British 45 "Tighten Up" on Atlantic 584 185 (May 1968) - is a welcome addition to CD - great 60ts soul.

Soul music from the early seventies straight outta Houston. I love this set.There is something enchanting about the simplicity of these dancable tunes which Archie and the gang pull off in a wonderfully nostalgic way.This stuff knocks socks off most of the pop dross out there at the moment.Re-mastered the soulful musicianship is really quite special particularly on the Tighten Up track when Archie brings in all the instruments during the intro.Not too sure about the 'Dock of the Bay' version but for this price who can grumble. Play it loud and I defy your feet to resist a little toe-tappin'.Great stuff.Check out Youtube for some recommendations and groovey videos-you will then get what this is all about.This is soul made for dancin'.

Great CD with all their older hits. This one takes me back to my youth and still sounds fantastic. A treat for anyone who loves old soul music.

No conocía a Archie Bell & the Drells y un amigo me habló muy bien de ellos. Ahora soy otro admirador.
