A deep delve into the insane world of rockabilly; gathering together over 50 gloriously madcap 45s as collected and celebrated by The Cramps' Lux and Ivy. Featuring a string of no hit wonders called Jimmy (or Sonny), a gaggle of tunes about cars, drag racing, drive-by romancing, the cops, the latest dance trends and the wildest of parties. Including tunes by Carl Perkins and Ronnie Self plus a veritable bandwagon of super rare and hard to find anthems by the likes of Onie Wheeler, Derrell Felts And The Confederates, Willie Ward And The Warblers, Larry And Dixie Davis and Art Adams And The Rhythm Knights. Choc-full of "bad" attitude, juvenile delinquent requiems and a host of crossover variations including nods to doo wop, honky tonk, hoedown and western swing amid the echoey reverb of detuned guitars and lip curling vocals. A never- before imagined experience with Wampus Cats, red hot mamas and rootie toot babies, madmen, chancers and play boys plus a testament to being hit on the head with a frying pan. Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine's Dave Henderson.
