THE PLATTERS - THE GREAT PRETENDER
Topline Records TOP 123
33 LP
1985
British release

The Platters - one of the greatest singing groups of the fifties and sixties - had a string of hits that is hard to match. Slip this platter on your turntable and spin back into the past with delicious songs like 'My Prayer', 'The Great Pretender', 'Harbour Lights', 'Smoke Gets in Your Eyes', 'Only You' ... in fact every song on this album was a hit. It's a great retro album with really nifty, colorful retro cover art. Fantastic - this group didn't have to pretend - they were the real thing!

Just a note in passing, The song "I'll Be Home", is one of the greatest songs ever recorded representing a serviceman singing to his loved one back home.

CONDITION
We test-play all records to determine condition

Used / previously played

DISC - Clean and bright - plays with a minimum of extraneous noise - a surface mark on side two hardly affects play (a barely discernible briefly repeating tic) ... pleasurable listening

JACKET - Slight ring discernible - a small set of initials displays on the front (written in red - almost blends in with the cover design) -- else clean and presentable

LINER - Clean paper liner
