The Platters - With This Ring - Musicor

60s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, May 17, 2011 18:42:51

When this great cut was released in 1966 the glory days for this famous outfit were over. Formed as early as ´51 The Platters struggled for a few years before hooking up with producer and songwriter Buck Ram who almost single-handedly turned them into one of the most successful Doo-Wop groups of all time. At their prime in the mid and late 50s they were seldom of the charts and had huge hits like "The Great Pretender" and "Only You". The group continued (with some line-up changes) to record in the 60s, trying to adapt their style to the new realms of music. Although they never were as successful commercially as in the 50s they did record some great records, especially during their stay at the New York based Musicor label. Enjoy!
