    Description

    "The Platters" Mono LP Federal 549 (1957). The most successful vocal group of the '50s, the Platters continued hit-making all the way to 1967. The group's heyday, though, was 1955 to 1958 when they had three #1s and 18 other songs make the Pop Top 100, including their first hit, the classic "Only You". All their hits from '55 to '62 were on Mercury, but they had first recorded on Federal, a well-known label to R&B collectors. While with Federal, the Platters had cut the original version of "Only You", which is included here. These early cuts show a slightly different style, a bit more raw than on the Mercury recordings. Far and away the rarest of the Platter albums, the cover here shows some wear, but the record itself is in Excellent condition. Condition: VG 5/ EX 7.
