AllMusic Review by

Sure, Greatest Hits contains the familiar Coasters items -- "Yakety Yak," "Charlie Brown," "Searchin'," "Poison Ivy," "Young Blood" -- but the sound is terrible, and worst of all, these sound suspiciously like re-recordings. Pass this by in favor of Rhino's midline The Very Best of the Coasters. It may cost a couple dollars more, but it contains all of the hits in their original incarnations.
