Truth In Advertising

The latest big score comes courtesy of Criminal Records in Little Five points.
A message on the back on the CD sez "Cramps fiends only!". That is a fair warning as this 2 CD set consists only of live performances, outtakes and demos from 1976 -1978. I love these guys and play their music several times a week but I would only recommend this to hardcore fans.
The set also includes several pages of liner notes and photos from their early days which makes the high price (around 20 bucks) a little more palatable.

Criminal Records is a really cool small CD and comic shop; I try to hit it anytime I am in the downtown Atlanta area during the week. I avoid the neighborhood on the weekends due to my aversion of large crowds of disaffected teenagers. If you have ever been in Little Five Points on a Friday night, You know I need not say more.

The Cramps still rock, though!
