This ten-track compilation covers the Coasters' most commercially productive period in the late-'50s, including "Young Blood," "Little Egypt," and "Along Came Jones." Unfortunately, the tracks "Searchin'," "Yakety Yak," and "Charlie Brown" are re-recordings. While this is an affordable disc, too many original hits are omitted. The Very Best of the Coasters on Rhino is the definitive buy.
