Rating 5.0 REPEAT - CORRECTION: ERROR MADE IN PREVIOUS REVIEW Music Lover: from CHINO VALLEY, AZ, USA -- May, 21, 2012

In my previous "R.C. JONES review" I made an error that I wish to correct: Even though the Platters did record a song called "Love Letter" (reading this letter was Herb Reed), this CD entitled "The Very Best Of The Platters" does contain the Victor Young-Edward Heyman composition "Love Letters." The versions by Ketty Lester and Elvis Presley were much better, but the Platters' jazzy rendition is above average. 5-21-12 R.C. JONES


Rating 5.0 THE PLATTERS (Universal Music) CD Music Lover: from CHINO VALLEY, AZ, USA -- May, 12, 2012

Among many "Best Of" and "Greatest Hits" compilations of the Platters, Universal (who owns the Mercury catalog of master recordings), has an excellent collection of their major hits. I had one disappointment, however. The track listing by oldies.com has "Love Letters," but it is not the "standard" song written by Edward Heyman and Victor Young and as recorded by Kitty Lester, Elvis Presley and many others. This CD of the "Platters" has an original song known as "Love Letter" without the "S" which is rarely contained on Platters' compilations. The exception is Bear Family Records' 246 tracks 9-CD box set of "Four Platters & One Lovely Dish. However, among the many songs by the Platters on this CD, we find one of my favorities, "My Dream." This CD is well worth the $12 cost compared to other collections and sets.
