Overview

Between 1956 and 1961 the Coasters put out a dozen or so classic singles that brilliantly detailed teenage angst, love, and lust, all of them given a slight comic spin that allowed the songs to nestle into AM pop radio with undetected subversive intent. It helped, too, that the Coasters' material was written, produced, and arranged by the great team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who knew exactly what to do and how to do it. This set includes stereo mixes of some of the hits, alternate and composite takes, and album tracks, making it perfect for fans wanting to go a little deeper into the Coasters' catalog.
