LUX & IVY'S FAVORITES VOL.1-6


A couple years ago a friend of mine introduced me to the Lux & Ivy's Favorites compilations, they're 6 compilations of The Cramps' Lux & Ivy's favourite songs (who would have guessed) but the problem is these compilation have never actually been released or are available to buy. The compilations were made by a Cramps FAN who compiled songs from 'Songs The Cramps Taught Us' compilations, the 'Forbidden City Dog Food' compilations that The Cramps used to play before their gigs and other songs that Lux or Ivy have mentioned before in interviews. The compilations are awesome and a real mix of stuff from Link Wray and Jack Nitzsche to more obsure stuff like Forbidden Five's Enchanted Farm which is just aload of animal noises over the top of an organ and a Theremin and a Mad Magazine song about Nose Jobs. The only way of getting these compilations up until now is off SOULSEEX so I thought I'd put them up here for you to download too, while you download them watch this brilliant live performance from The Cramps from the film URGH! A MUSIC WAR.

Of course, the tune I'm looking for is on Vol. 7...and I've read that there may be as many as 12 volumes now? Anyone confirm?

i thought i had seen and known blogs...but this...it is undescribable. yes that is a word. many thanks for the lux and ivy comps - that Blenders song 'don't fuck around with love' is amazing. may your toenails never need clipping.

Thankyou so much for these! Have been listening to the Cramps for years - and didn't know these existed! Saw them just the once - at the Hacienda in Manchester (UK)- nearly got crushed at the front of the stage (probably wouldn't be here now if it hadn't been for one of their crew!), upside was that i got to spend the rest of the gig sat behind the band! RIP Lux and very Best Wishes to Ivy.
Thanks again, and a great blog!
