Lux and Ivy's Favorites Vol. 9 (remaster)


With Kogar the Swinging Ape

Here is the remaster of Lux and Ivy's Favorites Volume 9. Only two more to go until the volume 18! Not a lot to report with this volume. I cleaned up the sound and added the killer cover image that I’ve wanted to use for a long time. The original image is from the amazing record called PSYCHEDELIC DANCE PARTY by the Vampires Sound Incorporation.  Around the time this volume came out The Cramps were using Sex And Mystic Of M.Sade as their intro music for their live performances, which you can hear on the first track.  The original song is pretty long, so this is an edit of the music they used as their intro. The song is from the film Tender Flesh aka Boccato Di Cardinale directed by Jess Franco. Speaking of Franco, I figured at the time, this would be a good volume to include the song The Lions and the Cucumber from one of Lux and Ivy’s Favorite films; Vampyros Lesbos.  Since then, Lions and the Cucumber has become really well known because of its inclusion in Tarantino’s film, JACKIE BROWN.  Prior to that it was mostly known by Franco fans and fans of vampiric psychedelic soundtracks.

I’m forgetting the person that helped me find a nice high quality scan of the original cover. Please remind me who you are! So I can thank you properly!

Adam Fitch did the layout and was able to find the font as well to really round out this volume! Thanks Adam!
