5.0 out of 5 stars Lemme Tell Ya A Little Story... January 4, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Once upon a time (always a good way to start a tale) there was a music fan who needed a Coasters CD for his collection. He knew all the big hits, even had many of them in various compilations, but wanted a more thorough overview of their storied career. There were two choices - the first was a relatively inexpensive 16 song "Very Best Of" that covered the basics and came from a series known for decent pics, notes and information. The second choice was a 50 song two-disc set that garnered rave reviews when it first came out but was more than double the cost. It was a toss up for the notoriously thrifty collector. When a used copy of the 16 track set was found for a big price discount the choice became easier.
Thus "The Very Best Of The Coasters" moved in and filled the requisite needs at first, even tossing in a few lesser heard gems such as the hysterical "Shoppin' For Clothes" and the rousing "Run, Red, Run". The notes which featured an interview with the group's famed writer/producers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller were informative, and while it skimped somewhat on mentioning the contributions of the singers themselves, and by limiting itself to just 16 songs focused almost solely on the hits, it was deemed a decent purchase overall.
But as usually happens with such a consistantly good act as the Coasters he found himself craving even more. Those huge hits that we've all heard a thousand times on radio, in movies and on those cheap Hits Of The 50's compilations were somehow not as impressive stacked one on top of another without pause. Sure they were still excellent compositions, brilliantly sung and played, but they were almost TOO popular to stand out amongst other equally famous sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just how serious are you? May 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
50 Coastin' Classics is a superb collection of Coaster's music, and the production values are superior. The vocals and instrumentation are clean, without much of the muddied sound so prevalent in recordings of this era. Additionally, almost miraculously, these are original recordings, not the cheesy remakes that are flooding the market.
That said, only a true devotee of the Coasters needs this anthology. The group had only six legitimate hits, all of which are available on more concise collections. You'll have to search a bit to make sure you're getting originals, but they are out there. However, if you are a Coasters fanatic and want everything they've done in a quality package, don't pass on this one. It's outstanding!

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Coasters CD October 23, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of all the original Coasters hits on Atco plus their earlier Robins tunes on Spark as well as later work on Date. The one clunker is a demo record sung by songwriter Jerry Lieber. So it's really 49 Coastin' classics, but why quibble. This 2 CD set contains every popular record by the Robins/Coasters from 1954 through 1968.The liner notes are extensive, highlighted by commentaries by Coaster songwriters Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller about each cut with detailed sessionography. Liner notes from a 1982 Coaster album are also included. However, there is no Coaster discography.This is the CD to get if you want to add the Coaster's music to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!!! September 24, 1998
Format:Audio CD
If you are a COASTERS fan, this is your best bet for almost all of the great hits. The quality is great with some good stereo. The booklet with notes covers all info on the songs with some great pictures of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller in studio settings in the 50's. The only thing that is lacking is two cuts "Gee Golly" and "Dance" (should have been added.) This is the best selection you will find on the Coasters. A GREAT BUY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dear Jerry Lieber & Mike Stoller February 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Everybody's talkin' about Lennon, Jagger, Dylan etc. etc. Nobody seems to care about you. Well, I love you. This CD is one of the warmest, funniest, toughest there is. Thank you for "Yakety Yak", and "Poison Ivy", and "Along Came Jones", and "Shoppin' For Clothes" and all the others. Sincerely, Jacob P.S.: Give my regards to The Coasters.
