This review is from: The Musicor Years (Audio CD)
Although the Platters are really known for their smooth romantic doo-wop ballads i had become aware of their mid-sixties more mid-tempo 'feel-good' material. When I talked with the engineer who mastered their work in Mirasound Studios NYC I decide to research them more. Hugely under-appreciated as few tracks achieved success in the UK...that is before the emergence of Northern Soul. Finding this ACE collection was great as it encapsulates the best of their work with producer Luther Dixon. It really is at the roots of the Northern Soul sound and I will definitely feature it in my 'That 'Northern Soul' Sound blog.....it is simply essential 60s soul. It stands up alongside most other soul groups of the time and only the last few tracks drop below the standard of the rest of the CD.
