A songwriter duo; two of the Founding Fathers of rock and roll. Jerry Leiber (words; from Queens) and Mike Stoller (music; from Baltimore), a pair of L.A. blues-junkie hipsters who were part of the 50s nucleus at Atlantic Records - but they had already cemented their legend as rhythm and blues writers before signing up. They left Atlantic in the early 60s to run their own indie label, cashing in at the tail end of the girl group boom.

I can only scratch the surface...

The musical Smokey Joe's Cafe is built around Leiber and Stoller hits. You're better off hunting down the original disques.
