No tax

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.

Williams also occasionally cut solo records during the 50s and he eventually 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 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 1 comprises his solo Mercury releases, notably his LP 'A Girl Is A Girl Is A Girl' (1959); a couple of Platters singles on which he was given featured billing; and his early Reprise sides.

Tony's Reprise recordings are almost impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
