Greetings From Death Row – Weird And Wonderful Sounds From The Vault Of Lux And Ivy
28 tracks of devil-may-care attitude and surreal storytelling as dug by The Cramps’ Lux and Ivy. Featuring Gene Vincent, Sonny Terry and Faron Young. Plus a host of one-hit wonders including the inimitable Connie Lee And The Untouchables, The Hot Tamales, The Furys, The Chantels and Hunter Watts And His Southern Pals. Embracing all styles from wild rockabilly, strident instrumental rock ’n’ roll, western swing, honky tonk, blues, doo-wop, crime jazz and beatnik weirdness. Includes a host of novelty pop 45s covering a love of bubblegum, record collecting, wardrobe malfunctions, the new dance craze and early learnings on the birds and bees, plus three tunes direct from death row, a last meal bonanza of self-examination and angst. With sleevenotes by MOJO’s Dave Henderson, all remastered from the original sound sources, a veritable blast of devil-may-care magic.
