Product Description:

If the Platters are associated with anything, it's creamy romantic ballads. Bear Family's 2013 compilation The Ballads of the Platters collects 33 of those ballads, including all of their major hits: "Only You (And You Alone)," "You'll Never Never Know," "The Great Pretender," "My Prayer," "(You've Got) The Magic Touch," "Twilight Time," "I'm Sorry," "Enchanted," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and "Harbor Lights." This accounts for almost all of the group's standards -- for comparison's sake, Rhino's 1998 Enchanted: The Best of the Platters, ran 20 tracks, and The Ballads contains all but four of those songs -- and the lesser-known tunes here, while not transcendent like those aforementioned hits, carry through with a similar sound and feel, making this a sweet, dreamy collection of the Platters' peak that effectively functions as a greatest-hits collection for the group. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
