    The Coasters
    Extended Play CD

    A fine collection from American Rhythm and Blues / Rock 'n' Roll vocal group The Coasters who had a string of hits in the late 1950s.
    The group got started in October 1955 with original members Carl Gardner, Billy Guy, Bobby Nunn and Leon Hughes.
    In 1957 Bobby Nunn and Leon Hughes were replaced by Cornell Gunter and Will "Dub" Jones.
    In 1956, they scored their first hit with Down In Mexico which sold 500,000 copies, and in 1957 and they topped the R&B charts and made the national Top Ten with their double-sided single Searchin' / Young Blood.
    They followed with a series of hit singles filled with instantly adaptable slang and timeless humour.
    Yakety Yak addressed the generation gap long before that term was coined, while Charlie Brown was a character study of a class clown that featured Will "Dub" Jones’ unforgettable line: "Why is everybody always pickin’ on me?"
    By the end of the decade, they’d carved out a legacy for themselves as purveyors of riotously Rock 'n' Roll records with a solid R&B underpinning.
