    Description

    "The Platters" LP Federal 549 Mono (1957). The premier vocal group of the 1950s charted 40 times from 1955 to 1967, but their classic period was from 1955 to 1958 when they had four #1s and 18 other charting tunes. Before signing with Mercury, the group had recorded for Federal, cutting an original version of the classic "Only You" a year before the Mercury version launched their string of national hits. This is the rarest Platters album, and it's a pip! The cover shows some wear, with tape on the spine, and a one-inch seam split at the top right corner and bottom right. Condition: VG++ (record)/VG (cover).
