Alvin Robinson.

I’m going through a bit of a Northern Soul period (c’mon, I’m always going through one of those), and found a nice version of the song “Searchin’,” performed by Alvin Robinson in 1961.

But of course readers of this blog might remember it from the guys’ ill-fated Decca auditions‚Ķ

…which is much closer to the Coasters’ original.
