Yakety Yak & Other Favorites [Rhino Flashback]

Performers The Coasters

Rhino Flashback | May 25, 2004 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Collectables' brief collection of songs by the Coasters, Yakety Yak & Other Favorites, doesn't purport to be a greatest-hits collection; it positions itself as an inexpensive introduction to the hilarious and rocking antics of the group. The ten songs included are among their biggest hits, including "Searchin'," "Smokey Joe's Cafe," "Charlie Brown," and "Yakety Yak" as well as some very worthy non-hits like "Framed" and "Idol With the Golden Head." It fails as an introduction, a hits collection, and a listening experience because it misses two of their biggest hits and signature songs, namely "Along Came Jones" and "Poison Ivy." Why they couldn't have been included is a mystery. For that reason alone there is almost no reason to buy this collection when a few dollars more will get you either The Very Best of the Coasters or The Ultimate Coasters, both of which contain the two aforementioned songs and many other great songs as well. [The disc is a straight reissue of Rhino Flashbacks' 1997 release of the same name.] ~ Tim Sendra
