The Coasters - Their Greatest Recordings: Early Years
The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock and roll vocal group who had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Beginning with "Searchin'" and "Young Blood", their most memorable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team of Leiber and Stoller. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s.
AllMusic Review by Steven McDonald
It's a short, sweet sucker punch of a record -- the best Coasters numbers in one place. Sharp, funny, musical and memorable from start to end. Lieber and Stoller's writing and production was at its best with these cuts.
