Two offerings of R&B history back-to-back from The Coasters, perhaps the most successful and popular of the many vocal groups that sprung to prominence in the doo-wop era of the '50s. The Leiber-and-Stoller-penned "Three Cool Cats" was certainly aptly named; decades later, the song retains all of its easy charm, swagger, and instant appeal. It's one of those records that will never date. The same could be said for the flip, "Down in Mexico," a song that appeared in its 1970s reworked guise in a Tarantino flick, but appears here in its superior, original, super-sleazy 1950s form.
