• 50 fantastic tracks from the eclectic vault of The Cramps’ Lux And Ivy’s inspired record collecting.

• Featuring dishevelled acid folk, super sweet bubble gum pop, atmospheric oddball sounds, dark and brooding rhythms and a veritable hoard of rough, rare and ready rockabilly and rock ’n’ roll.

• Including photo garage blow outs, early R&B grooves and an overhead cam of hot rod tales alongside esoteric exotica and straight ahead novelty pop.

With madcap performances from Donnie James with the Mighty Joe Houston Orchestra, Tall Tonio And The Mello-Dees, Chris Christian And The Chordaires, Elisabeth Waldo, Fred Katz and John Reedy & His Stone Mountain Trio among many more; it’s a cavalcade of no-hit wonders, every last one of them a gem.

A host of mind altering conversation pieces that cover the waterfront of ‘Women In Cadillacs’ and ‘Hocus Pocus’ with the romantic love letter ‘Wet Back’, the super sweet ‘Candy Kisses & Bubbly Gum’, the lonesome croon of Mack Self’s ‘Everyday’ and the poignant ‘Trail Of Tears’ by the mysterious Willows.

A veritable head rush of what pop music should be, timeless nuggets as weird and wonderful it gets.

Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine’s Dave Henderson.
