The Platters were one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. Their distinctive sound was a bridge between the pre-rock Tin Pan Alley tradition and the burgeoning new genre.
The Platters have gone through several personnel changes over the years but they were one of the first African American groups to be accepted as a major chart group and were, for a period of time, the most successful vocal group in the world.
