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.[1] 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

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.
