Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Lux and Ivy's Favorites

" ... I'm the guy who compiles the Lux and Ivy's Favorites Compilations.
It started as a way to keep track of some of the songs Lux, and or Ivy, mentioned in THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE MUSIC BOOK. It was never really intended as anything but a way for a friend of mine and me to have 2 really kick ass compilations.
So we went about the arduous process
of finding all the songs mentioned in that interview. It took a loooong time. We used the file sharing program, Napster, as well as our own personal collections. So, one thing lead to another and when word got around that these compilations were out there, they started being traded from fan to fan to fan. So, at some point I decided to put them up on Napster and let anyone who wanted them have them. As the years went buy, more interviews with Lux and Ivy kept popping up, and the list of songs they mentioned got longer and longer. This resulted in new volumes.

In the end, these comps are a tribute to my heroes, The Cramps."

Note from mrdantefontana: This is all music and sounds a human being needs. If you ever happen to get stranded on that deserted island you just need an mp3 player cooking with Lux and Ivys Favorites. You will probably also need a minimum of food and some water. But that is all. You will get by fine.
