Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lux hailed rockabilly as a musical oeuvre that changed the world and so it did. This is the sampler to this mystical magical realm of perenial teenagerdom, the period before the hang noose tie and Hugo Boss straightjacket claimed another middle aging victim. The hair falls out then prog rock and MOR clutter the CD tray.

Eric and Kirsty created and then inhabited a Tex Avery/Max Fleischer cartoon technicolour dream world of fin tailed cars, women juddering on stacks, skin tight leather, dressed as venus incarnate, existing just beyond the reach of the mundane drizzle of corpulent worlds.

Long rounded chromed sickles with black jacketed greesed lithe ducktailed Adonis's. Preening in mirrors with a bleached goddess in halter shorts and ray bans clutching your rear. A world of pure teenage joy of sex, speed and carefree unadult-erated lives of dross and mammon. Guitars made by Gretsch, Gibson, Fender and Japanese retro glide artefacts of the 50's and 60's twang the sound.

Music was uncluttered, sexual, vibrant and conjured the images of satiated excess. Elvis the inspiration for a genetic revolution, throwing off the old biblical eye for an eye and listening to the inner voices.

"Save it," pants Mel, because you know he's the one that craves it. First excavated by Lux "Love Me," pleads the Phantom on one knee, because the goddess of lust has set his soul on fire and he's craving with desire. "Please Give me Something," to remember you by, bangs Bill because she was worth it. Songs about lust and the gluttony of excess hitched to desire. The other characters feasting on the gorge of Pan add their wanton cries to the carnival of writhe and roll.

Curley lets it slip and slide, whilst letting you know what's on his mind.

Format: Audio CD
The Cramps could stake a claim for being one of the greatest bands of all time. Despite the fact that a fair amount of their output consists of cover versions and compilation albums, they burned so bright and with such ferocity and commiment they were simply unique and unforgettable. Lux's passing last year brought tears to my eyes - there are not many musicians that can be said about.

This album explores the roots of the Cramps music, predominately the stranger, darker side of 50's rockabilly. The tracks included are fantastic, crackling with an energy all too often missing from recent music. Some are tracks the Cramps covered, others they pinched the rhythm from, still others gave them seed ideas and essential atmosphere.

If you are already a Cramps fan you must check this out. If not and you sense this mysterious world may be for you then get this compilation and all of the Cramps pre 1984 output.. you will be an instant convert. The best starting places: Bad Music for Bad People (the actual Cramps compilation), Psychedelic Jungle, Songs the Lord Taught Us, Smell of Female (live) and Off the Bone. A warning.... one you have dipped your toe in there is no turning back!

This is a fantastic collection of rockers for any cramps or rockabilly fan. Originals of Lux n Ivy's covers sit alongside inspiration for songs like Human Fly and I'm Cramped. Stay sick, turn blue

2 tracks the cramps covered and 24 filler that maybe was once featured on a radio show they presented. A waste of cash. I could compile a cd this way too.... 2 songs 1 direction covered & 24 they might have listened too.

A better cd might have been less tracks but actually songs the cramps covered.

Good Rockabilly and Swampy Blues 26 May 2012
By Oannes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD thinking it was a legitimate release, it was wrapped, sold and packaged as a legitimate release, and although I was not aware of this label, I thought it was a legitimate release, because of the price range it was slotted into: AU $19:95.

However I now realise this may be a bootleg, but the previous reviewer who says "avoid" seems to indicate that the actual sound quality may be dodgy, due to (the previous reviewer's) belief that these are mp3's ripped from a free download website, then "released" on CD as "the real deal". I have only listened to this (so far) on a clock radio CD player, and the sound from this is fine to my ears, none of the music seems to display the audio "pixilation" more in keeping with a compressed format! it sounds clean, clear and good to my ears.

The music is classic sounding early Rockabilly and swampy Blues, only a few of these artists I have heard of before. I enjoyed this music, and it would be a great CD to break out after midnight, in an old school rocking party!

I would recommend this, obviously to all Cramps fans, but also to those who are into early Rockabilly styles, this is pure class and a great addition to my collection. Buy it, whether it's a bootleg or not!

beware of bootleg scammers! 20 Sept. 2010
By kogar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
all of these songs are available for free download at various sites on the internet. yeah, the songs are awesome and all that, but you know what else is awesome? downloading it for free. the cramps see no money from this release, so don't waste your time on it. the covers are even taken from an ebay auction of a poster from the late 70's talk about lazy...

DO NOT PASS UP THIS CD 26 Jan. 2010
By Thomas C. Oravec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For all you Cramps fans out there, this is a great piece to own. It is basically a Born Bad type CD. This little gem shows you where The Cramps got the inspiration for their albums "Songs The Lord Taught Us" and "Bad Music For Bad People" This is a "MUST HAVE" for anyone that knows good music.
