Buck Ram and The Platters

Bill Millar, Let It Rock, April 1973

BUCK RAM is remembered for The Platters and a number of hit records: 'Only You' and 'The Great Pretender' (1955); 'The Magic Touch', 'My Prayer' and 'You'll Never Never Know' (1956); 'I'm Sorry' (1957); 'Twilight Time' and 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes' (1958); 'Enchanted' (1959); 'Harbour Lights' and 'To Each His Own' (1960) and – a late resurgence – 'With This Ring' (1967). What a fine book they'd make eh?
