Herb Reed and His Platters, a version of the original group, sign photograph of them posing in bedazzled purple costumes
Photograph signed: "Herb Reed", "Val/ Victoria", "Wayne/ Miller", "William/ Newton", and "Love,/ Billie/ Cox" in black ink. Color, 8x10. Captioned: "Herb Reed of the Original Platters & His Group". There are an estimated 125 sanctioned versions of "the original Platters" on the oldies show circuit. This is a signed photograph of one of those groups. The Platters formed in Los Angeles, California in 1953, with original members Tony Williams (lead singer), Herb Reed (bass), David Lynch (tenor), Alex Hodge and Zola Taylor. There wasn't much to differentiate them from other rhythm and blues groups until Samuel "Buck" Ram took over management of the group. Ram - who also worked with the Penguins, of Earth Angel fame - restructured the group and turned the Platters into a hit machine and one of the most romantic doo wop acts going. They released numerous Top 20 hits on the Billboard Pop Singles charts and five chart toppers: Only You (1955), My Prayer (1956), The Great Pretender (1958), Twilight Time (1958) and Smoke Gets in your Eyes (1959). The Platters continue to tour under numerous personnel changes. Toned. Stained in right margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
