Reseña de álbum

The Robins moved down to Los Angeles from San Francisco in 1948, quickly hooking up with bandleader Johnny Otis, who added singing comedian Bobby Nunn to the group. Nunn's smooth, deep baritone became the centerpiece of the Robins, and they cut several tracks with Otis' small combo for Savoy Records, including the big hit "Double Crossing Blues," which featured a guest lead vocal from a then 13-year-old Little Esther Jones.

Nunn left the Robins in the mid-'50s to form the Coasters, the group, obviously, that the Robins most resemble.
