Product Description:

The Platters: Herb Reed, Paul Robi, Zola Taylor, David Lynch, Tony Williams, Sonny Turner.
All songs originally released 1955-1963. Booklet includes release information and liner notes by Harry Weinger.
A double-disc, 50-track extravaganza from one of the paragons of smooth soul, The Magic Touch: An Anthology is the most complete look at the Platters, barring only Bear Family's 1994 box set Four Platters and One Lovely Dish. Between 1955 and 1962, the quintet recorded 36 entries that reached the pop charts and they're all here, led by the ones that absolutely must be on any effective Platters compilation: "Only You (And You Alone)," "The Great Pretender," "(You've Got) The Magic Touch," "My Prayer," "Twilight Time," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Harbor Lights," and "Red Sails in the Sunset." That leaves plenty of room for the type of material collectors drool over, like the previously unreleased "Hula Hop" and a rare Tony Williams solo record ("When You Return"), plus obscure Platters versions of songs made famous by others ("The Glory of Love," "Goodnight Sweetheart, It's Time to Go," "My Old Flame," even an enjoyable stab at "Sixteen Tons"). It's all delivered in the sweetest sound heard yet, with a lengthy booklet and many superb photos. It's the ultimate Platters anthology, and it's everything this important group deserves. ~ John Bush

Rating 5.0 MAGIC TOUCH: PLATTERS' ANTHOLOGY 50 TRACKS Music Lover: from CHINO VALLEY, AZ USA -- May, 9, 2012

ANTHOLOGY IS BEST COMPILATION OF THE PLATTERS WITH 50 RECORDINGS; SECOND ONLY TO FOUR PLATTERS AND ONE LOVELY DISH WHICH HAS 246 TRACKS. This "Magic Touch" is best for the price. It's a good companion the new CD release (5-8-12) of "Reflections" and "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries" 2LP's on one CD. These three CD sets are better by far than any other Platters' compilations !
