Speculation, but Buddy and The Crickets met King Curtis during the Alan Freed Third Anniversary Show in the late summer of 1957, and King Curtis' legendary saxophone work on The Coasters' hit "Yakety Yak" (written by Leiber & Stoller) was high on the Billboard charts in August 1958. As Buddy commented in one of his radio interviews, he was not averse to 'hopping on a trend,' so that may explain why Buddy and Norman reached out to Curtis to bring his saxophone to the September 1958 recording session in Clovis. Buddy was definitely a fan of The Coasters/Leiber & Stoller, because several months later he covered "Smokey Joe's Cafe" on the apartment tapes. Also, the saxophone figured heavily in Buddy's recording of "True Love Ways" at the Pythian Temple in October 1958.
