The Platters: Only You


This beautiful song was written by Samuel ‘Buck’ Ram and released by The Platters in 1955. Ram produced it and when Mercury planned to issue it on their purple ‘race music’ label, he insisted that it should go out under the standard label. It reached No 5 in the US chart and stayed there for 30 weeks.
