The Platters Part Two

By popular demand, it’s The Platters Part Two. I wanted to do this blog next year (in 1956), but I have been ask to bring it out now, so here it is. Seriously, I like to my. blogs on groups and not just just singers. Since this year of 1955, I don’t have anyone that I like born, so why not have have something different, than just move on to the next year. That’s why I’m doing bands that I may have overlooked, and given a chance now.

Changing The Line-Up

The line-up in 1952 consisted of lead vocalist Cornell Gunter, Herb Reed, Alex Hodge, Joe Jefferson, and David Lynch. Before long, Gunter was replaced by tenor Tony Williams.

The band‘s second manager Ram chose to build the group around Williams‘s distinctive as wel...

The Platters Part One

You may not know them now, but in the 1950’s they were the number one group, with over forty top hits, which even today’s top singers couldn’t compete with. The Platters Part One, is more of a dedication to their career than a biography, so I’m doing both.

The Platters


The Platters are an American singing group formed in 1952. They were one of the most successful singing groups of the early Rock’N’Roll age. Their distinctive sound was a bridge between the pre-rock Tin Pan Alley tradition and the expanding new genre. The act underwent a number of personnel changes, with among one of the most successful incarnations comprising lead tenor Tony Williams, David Lynch, Paul Robi, Herb Reed, as well as Zola Tay...

Juice Newton Part Two

She was my very first Country and Western singer and performer (she writes music, so she’s not just some singer with a pretty face, that you see now a-days), and I have all of her albums on vinyl, and now, I’m doing Juice Newton Part Two.

From Pop To Country

Newton had constantly been reasonably popular in country music; she replied to her subsiding popularity in the pop market by targeting her next album, 1985‘s Old Flame, entirely to country audiences. The strategic move  was a success; the album renewed her career, reached No. 12 on the Billboard album chart and included six Top-10 country hits, including the No. 1s You Make Me Want to Make You Mine, Hurt, as well as Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)

Films Of 1952

Three good Films Of 1952, which I’ll watch later tonight, but not much else that I would watch, even though some of the people that I typed about, are in them, the movies themselves aren’t that memorable or worth watching. Hollywood was just throwing in singers and actors, but not throwing in story, but their learn their mistake when the younger generation become teenagers, but that’s not not going to happen until 1955.

She’s the only one, that I like, who was born in 1952, which this year will be short, however, Juice Newton Part One, will be sweet.

Judy Kay Juice Newton (birthed February 18, 1952) is an American pop and also country (which I think she invented Country Pop, because her hit songs is on both categories at the same time), singer, songwriter, and also musician. As of this date, Newton has received five Grammy Award nominations in the Pop and Country  Best Female Singer categories  winning once in 1983  along with an ACM Award for Top New Female Artist and two Billboard Female Album Musician of the Year awards (won back to back). Newton‘s various other awards consist of a People‘s Choice Award for Best...
