Reseña de álbum

The Olympics often get compared to the Coasters, in part since the group's main songwriting team, Fred Smith and Cliff Goldsmith, were very much a poor man's version of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the architects of the Coasters' sound. If anything, the Olympics were even rougher and looser, and the group's novelty dance tunes are quite infectious, although a lot of their sides start to sound alike after a while. This set covers the group's stay at Richard Vaughn's Los Angeles-based Arvee Records between 1959 and 1962 (unfortunately it doesn't include one of their best Arvee sides, 1965's "Good Lovin'," the original from which the Rascals drew their hit version).

Fun stuff.

They are perhaps best remembered for their Coasters-derived "Western Movies," but their other L.A.-area hits include the...
