Von einem ehemaligen Sänger der Gruppe »Ink Spots« wurden »The Platters« 1953 in Los Angeles als Vokalquintett gegründet. Um den Sänger Tony Williams, der ganz nach Bluesart in den höchsten Stimmlagen sang, gruppierten sich David Lynch, Paul Robi, Herbert Reed und Zolá Taylor, die ihn im Hintergrund mit choralähnlichem Vortrag begleiteten. Diese ungewöhnliche Art zu singen kam beim Publikum gut an: Die romantischen Balladen der Gruppe kletterten in den Hitlisten schnell nach oben, allen voran "Only You" (1955). Es folgten "The Great Pretender" (1956), "My Prayer" nach der Melodie 'Avant de Mourir' (1956) und "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" (1959) aus Cole Porters Musical 'Roberta'.
Der schier unglaubliche Erfolg der Gruppe hielt bis 1973 an. Als sich danach die Besetzung änderte und neue Sänger hinzukamen, wurde es etwas stiller um sie. Die "neuen" Platters waren nur noch darauf bedacht, den alten Fans aus Jugendzeiten traditionelle "Ohrwürmer" zu präsentieren. Große Erfolge mit neuen Songs konnten sie dann schließlich keine mehr verzeichnen.

(aus dem Sampleralbum 'Great Romantic Memories')
