THE PLATTERS - WITH THIS RING



Wedding day, and I feel like the luckiest guy alive!

I can think of no better song to post today other than this classic tune.

The Platters morphed from their doo-wop origins into a classy soul group that waxed some excellent sides in the mid 60's, although the road was a rocky one to say the least. The group saw a massive amount of personnel changes since their beginnings in 1953 (just as most long running vocal groups experience), and by the time of this release the only original member of the group was Herb Reed. Nonetheless, the Platters (whoever they were at the time) morphed nicely into the soul sounds of the mid 60's.

from 1967...

Being blessed myself with the love of my life I love how you speak of Angelyne. I wish all the best for you on your wedding day.
One of the things that raises my level of interest in your site beyond the continual amazing music is how you share bits of your life. Thank you for the time you invest and again may today truly be the best ever.

At this point, The Platters were Sonny Turner, Nate Nelson, Herb Reed, David Lynch and Sandra Dawn. They certainly did a great job of staying contemporary and appealing by that point, hadn't they?

As for your wedding today, I wish you the very best. I hope you two make beautiful music together!

All the best to you and yours Derek! Hope you two had an amazing wedding day! From one music fanatic to another, especially of the classics, thank you so much for your blog, which I just discovered today while trying to find a quality MP3 copy online of Freddie Scott's "You Got What I Need". That search was triggered by a recent project of mine to track down many of the tracks that DJ Shadow has sampled in his much. As you may know, Scott's track was sampled in Shadow's "Product Placement" mix.

Thanks again and best wishes!
