Arvee Singles Plus
The Coasters may wear the crown when it comes to mixing comedy with Rock 'n' Roll, but they weren't the first group to include an element of social satire in their recordings. Another West Coast group takes that prize, The Olympics. Collected here are all their singles for the Arvee label plus all their LP only tracks. The Olympics didn't go on to reach the heights or legendary status that the Coasters did, but their recording career lasted over a decade during which time they released, re-recorded and released again a slew of records that are still sought out today by Rock 'n' Roll and soul collectors. This CD contains two Olympics titles that have not appeared on CD before, "Baby It's Hot" and "What'd I Say Pt. 2," and unlike other reissues, this CD has been anthologized by single releases. Acrobat. 2005.
