After a foray into the sixties underground I thought it would be nice to have a bit of good-time music from the fifties. The Coasters, with their array of Leiber and Stoller songs were always a favourite of mine.
They were much covered by the sixties Beat Groups, including the Beatles.
They were a black US R&B outfit, not quite Doo-Wop, but in the same general area. Some of their songs were humorous but some weren’t. I think they’re great.
So today I’m filling the house with 50’s R&B and the sound of the Coasters.
