    The Platters
    The Magic Touch (2-CD)

    50 track double CD collection featuring all of The Platters original chart singles, plus some of their greatest B-sides and EP/LP cuts, and some of rarities too.
    The accompanying booklet features detailed liner notes and rare photos.
    Beginning in 1955 with "Only You" through 1961's "If I Didn't Care" Tony Williams' powerful tenor was the voice of numerous classics, including chart toppers "The Great Pretender," "My Prayer," "Twilight Time" and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes."
    Sonny Turner replaced Williams in 1961, but this collection covers The Platters' peak years from 1955-1961, when they charted with more than thirty songs.
    The Platters were the first black group ever to have a Number One chart record, and were the first group to cross racial barriers on the concert circuit.
    Their 1990 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a testimony to their success and this two-disc collection is a must-have for serious fans of Fifties Rock 'n' Roll, Doo-Wop and Rhythm & Blues.
