The Platters. Do you know they?
10 Dec 08
One of the great groups of their era, and I was a teenager grwoing up when they were popular. The Great Pretender, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Only You, and Twilight Time were some of my favourites of theirs. Those were the days, when the Top 40 would have The Platters side by side with Elvis, or the Brothers Four, or Harry Belafonte, or Frank Sinatra, or Johnny Ray, or Little Richard lol - I could go on.

Only You by The Platters was remade by a Filipino singer named Sam Milby. But I miss the doo-woop group there. I've listened to the (You've Got) The Magic Touch, Harbor Lights, My Prayer and Some Gets In Your Eyes...Wow!

I adore the Platters, and I was just playing that CD this morning. They have such a beautiful sound. I could do without "Harbor Lights," but other than that I absolutely love all of their songs. I think "Twilight Time" is my favorite, but it's difficult to pick; they're all so good! "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" is amazing, too, and "Red Sails in the Sunset" is really catchy.
