The Platters

The Platters were a very successful doo wop group, formed in 1953. They first signed with Federal Records[?], but moved after meeting manager, producer and songwriter Buck Ram[?]. They signed with Mercury Records[?] and, under Ram's leadership, became the first black singers of the time to top the pop charts. "Only You", "My Prayer" and "Harbor Lights" became the group's signature songs, known at the time as excellent "make out songs". The Platters are still known as one of the most romantic doo wop groups, in spite of having broken up in 1961.
