Charley Pride is best known as country music's greatest and most successful black singer. Beyond that monumental achievement, however, he should be recognized for something more: Pride is simply a great country singer, period. His baritone is deceptively smooth--behind his crooning lies a warm and gentlemanly twang that is the expressive equal of most any of his contemporaries. Collecting 12 country hits released between 1966 and '74, Platinum is a swell introduction to his work. "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'" (which also charted pop) will be instantly recognizable to even passing country fans, but hits like the poor-boy's anthem "All I Have to Offer You Is Me" and his chart debut, "Just Between You and Me," are bona fide country classics in their own right. --David Cantwell

"Charley Pride has been my favorite country singer since I was a little girl. My parents only played country music, so I developed a taste for it (along with other styles). This past weekend my parents took me to see Mr. Pride for my 41st birthday. I cried. His voice is as wonderful in person as it is on this CD. He has the capability to sing his own and other's music with equal talent. You're going to want to add this to your collection . . . and if you ever get the chance, go see him. You won't regret it."

"charley prides old songs are very good and most of his albums are very good ,but there is one song that I feel was one of his best songs that he ever sang but you can't find it on any of charley pride's albums that are available. the songs title is "momma don't cry for me". hey charley pride please sing it again on another album or release the original song on another hits album. thank you.
