There's a reason why the Cramps torch never seems to dim. Their legacy (and yes it is a legacy) is as complete living breathing rock 'n' rollers, on stage and mulling around dank thrift stores, throughout their decades spanning existence. Always a little out there, but undeniably palatable. That is, if you had an ounce of freak in you. They had a record called "Stay Sick," and that's just what they did, yessir. Just enough to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Here's three LP length downloads, all posted recently at other blogs, and few individual songs that have been posted before.

First, in case you missed them:
The Cramps - Confessions of a Psycho-Cat mp3
at Review Stalker
The Cramps - Let's Get Fucked Up mp3 at 8106
The Cramps - I Was a Teenage Werewolf mp3
at The Mad Makerel
The Cramps - Surfin' Dead mp3
at Indie Shuffle
The Cramps - Goo Goo Muck mp3
at Review Stalker
The Cramps - Human Fly mp3
at Review Stalker
The full lengths:
Lux & Ivy's favorites, Vol 2, Remastered at The Hound Blog This series should need no introduction (see this post for other volumes).
Lux Lives Commemorative CD 2012 Another mix by the Hound. This one was handed out at an annual gathering of Lux Interior fiends and assorted Crampers. Read the story about it, and give it a listen...jerk.
The Cramps - Songs the Lord Taught Us (Alternate mix) LP flac rip at White Trash Soul You might need some sort of a converter for this one, to play it as an mp3. Too much hassle for me, but fiends is fiends and I'm sure there's some of you who are part geek. Do it up.
