The Coasters Young Blood

The Coasters Young Blood
(1982) Atlantic Deluxe label gatefold jacket two record set.  Purchased in the early 2000’s probably at Amoeba Music. Leiber and Stoller successes The Coasters, are one of the few crossover groups that enjoyed popularity from both black and white audiences.  This particular collection has all of their hits from 1956 through 1968.  The Coasters were Carl Gardner, Bobby Nunn, Billy Guy, Leon Hughes, and later included Earl “Speedo” Carroll, Will “Dub” Jones, and Cornell Gunter.  The Coasters sprang from The Robins which disbanded when their label was taken over.

I credit my grandmother for introducing me to The Coasters.  She had a few of their 45s so it is no surprise that I would find this and buy it.  So pleased it is in my collection.  I love Oldies But Goodies from the 1950’s.  One of my favorites is Down Home Girl.  It was covered by The Rolling Stones and recently by Old Crow Medicine Show.
