Description by OLDIES.com:

How did two white teenagers start with a shared love of rhythm & blues in 1950 and go on to change popular music forever? The story could fill a book... and now, with Hound Dog: The Leiber & Stoller Autobiography, it does. But, hearing is believing. Comic "playlets" laced with social commentary, crafted for the Robins and the Coasters; soulful romanticism coaxed from the Drifters and Ben E. King; and a salty blues written for "Big Mama" Thornton... they're all here, alongside the best reinterpretations that demonstrate the enduring power of the songs of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.

Product Description:

Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller's songwriting and production talents were top-notch, and their '50s and early-'60s hits with the likes of the Coasters, the Drifters, and others are classics from top to bottom--as songs, as performances, and as wonderfully produced records. HOUND DOG: THE LEIBER & STOLLER COLLECTION collects several of them, including the original version of "Hound Dog" by Big Mama Thornton, the Drifters' magnificent "There Goes My Baby," Aretha Franklin's stellar "Spanish Harlem," and Ben E. King's "Stand by Me." It's just the tip of the iceberg, naturally, but it's a fun and classic set from first to last. Leiber & Stoller were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1985 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. This is why.
