The Coasters

A: Little Egypt (Ying-Yang)
B: Down In Mexico
In Conclusion we know that the single "Down In Mexico, re-recorded version" doesn't exist on any known discography for singles made by The Coasters, at least not what i have search high and low for. We know the single have been recorded in circa 1973, and maybe released somewhere in 1973 or 1974. We don't know the the name of the song that followed with the other side of the single record, could be a very good help if we did. We also know that somewhere on the single record stands "Newly Recorded", and that the single record itself is pretty rare > heres proof for that statement from this interview with Tarantino (fast foward to 2:55).
We know that The Coasters re-recorded many of their hit songs, and released them into singles in circa 1973 or 1974, and then in 1975 they assembled all the re-recordings into an album called The Coasters - 16 Greatest Hits.
We know the line up looked like this >

The revival lineup (1968 - 1979):
* Carl Gardner, lead
* Earl "Speedo" Carroll, tenor
* Billy Guy, baritone (up to 1973)
* Jimmy Norman, baritone (from 1973, absent 1979)
* Ronnie Bright, bass
* Thomas "Curley" Palmer, guitar

The only way for know is to buy this companion book (Grindhouse: The Sleaze-filled Saga of an Exploitation Double Feature), about the making of Death Proof and Planet Terror. And maybe somewhere in the book it has information about the soundtrack used in Death Proof, and here i especially think about the lap dance scene with the The Coasters - "Down In Mexico, re-recorded version" roaring out of the AMi Continental 2.

KeithS - Sorry but the version you hear on The Coasters & Doo Wop Friends is not what i am talking about, it's the version that sound like this "Down In Mexico, re-recorded", a track thats originally from The Coasters - 16 Greatest Hits, an album with mostly re-recorded versions of their original songs (album released in 1975, with most of the tracks newly recorded in 1973) - But thanks for the help anyway

Oh damn, the whole thing is just a big mystery, the only way it maybe could be solved is to buy this Grindhouse: The Sleaze-filled Saga of an Exploitation Double Feature, a companion book that details the whole making of Death Proof and Planet Terror.
One more thing before i let this end... some of you may know that the jukebox being used in Death Proof, is actually owned by Tarantino, and that the jukebox is an AMi Continental 2, from 1962 (can hold a selection of 100 singles), a real beauty if you ask me, on this website there is a "complete listing" for Tarantino's jukebox, but there is only listed the first 50 singles, wheres the last half? and not only that, The Coasters "Down In Mexico, the re-recorded version, single" is not on this listing, its on the other half we don't know about ? - That single is hiding everywhere, can't find any information (other than what you guys have helped me with)

bill mann - Yeah i know that LP record, it's The Coasters - 16 Greatest Hits (released in 1975, with most of the tracks recorded in 1973) but i'm searching for the "Down In Mexico, re-recorded version, single", but where to find it is a mystery.
It could be that Tarantino used the "Down In Mexico, re-recorded version" track from The Coasters - 16 Greatest Hits to his lap dance scene from Death Proof. And it could just be that the single "Down In Mexico, the re-recorded version" just doesn't exist...

If this record is not the "Down In Mexico, the re-recorded version" then which record is? i have looked everywhere for that single of "Down In Mexico, the re-recorded version", also Tarantino says it is extremely rare, but can it really be so rare that it doesn't stand on The Coasters singles discography - can someone please help!
