The Platters with "Only You," The Flares with "Footstomping," The Blockbusters in "Rock All Night!"  It was the Golden Age of  Rock & Roll.  Here, Straight From the Horses Mouth, are the press releases, correspondence and office notes covering six decades.  This is not a "story" about Personality Productions artists.  This is the "stuff" that made it happen - in that moment - exactly as written.  Follow the rise of The Platters as the group overshadows the other acts on the Personality roster to become the #1 group of the era.  See how Liberace, Freddie Bell, Cornell Gunter (Coasters), and master songwriter/producer Buck Ram were promoted before there was facebook, the internet or even electric typewriters.
