The Platters - Their Greatest Hits And Finest Performances



3CD Set
Released 1993/4
Cat No.: RDCD761-3 (RDC92421-3)
RD Code: PLAT 298
Compiled by Polygram Special Markets

This collection was not actually compiled by Reader's Digest. RD always had a non-explainable alliance with Polygram (now Universal) and it was they who created this, and many other future RD releases. Polygram had difficulty reaching their target markets for this type of product, and with RD customers being perfect for this kind of release, they licensed it complete to RD US who had a big success with it. Other RD editions, including UK, were then ordered to release the set as local product (hence the UK product numbers) and, all critisisms aside, it did sell reasonably well. Personally I never understood, why RD would share most of the profits with an inferior product that RD could have made itself, better, for a fraction of the cost.
