The Platters were one of the world's most successful vocal groups during the 1950s, with thirty-five hit records in The States alone, of which seven or eight were million sellers, including four US #1s.

The lead singer on all of these was the mercurial TONY WILLIAMS, a man with a perfect voice.

He quit The Platters in 1961 to pursue a solo career, signing with Frank Sinatra's new Reprise label, for whom he debuted with an LP, 'Tony Williams Sings His Greatest Hits' and a couple of singles, 'Sleepless Nights' and 'The Miracle'.

The Platters were one of the world's most successful vocal groups during the 1950s, with thirty-five hit records in The States alone, of which seven or eight were million sellers, including four US #1s.

The lead singer on all of these was the mercurial TONY WILLIAMS, a man with a perfect voice.

He quit The Platters in 1961 to pursue a solo career, signing with Frank Sinatra's new Reprise label, for whom he debuted with an LP, 'Tony Williams Sings His Greatest Hits' and a couple of singles, 'Sleepless Nights' and 'The Miracle'.

He moved to the Philips label the following year, for the 'The Magic Touch Of Tony' LP and an impossibly rare 45, 'Chloe' / 'Second Best'.

The two compilations in this 'mini-series' anthologise Tony's solo recordings between 1955-62, chronologically; Volume 1 deals with 1955-61, and Volume 2, with 1961-62.

Volume 2 comprises his Reprise and Philips recordings, which are nigh impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
