Originals, But Too Many Are Missing
02/15/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'm an oldies DJ in New England, and I'd like to correct a misimpression offered by the sole reviewer posted here (2/25/04). The tracks on this CD are indeed original recordings--not recuts. You do need to watch out for recuts with the Platters--but not here. Problem is, though it does contain all the biggest Platters' hits, virtually all the lesser hits--those that peaked lower than #12 on the Billboard charts--are omitted in favor of some odd selections. You may be interested in hearing the Platters' rendition of "Sixteen Tons" (I wasn't), but where's 1959's "Enchanted?" Some lovely non-top-10 hits are sacrificed, and some pretty iffy material included. A better, more complete collection can be found elsewhere. But if you're looking for original recordings of the group's very biggest hits, this CD is perfectly adequate."
