Description

Date with Elvis on LP

Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Reissue of this album from the mutant primal Rock 'n' Roll dynamos. Originally planned for 1985 to join in the onslaught of Elvis's 50th Anniversary commemorative reissues, a DATE WITH ELVIS came out in early 1986 in Europe only, where it went on to sell more than 200,000 copies. The only album featuring The Cramps as a three-piece band (Poison Ivy doubled on bass), it careens from the sociopathic advice of 'People Ain't No Good' (later covered by Nick Cave) to mindon vacation odes like 'Aloha from Hell' and 'Kizmiaz' (where The Cramps prove they were exotic when exotic wasn't cool), in the process offing more paeans to poontang than you can shake a snake at and fittingly finishing off with a soulful lovesick cover of Charlie Feathers' 'It's Just That Song.' 'Can Your Pussy Do the Dog' was voted single of the year for 1986 in Playboy's annual music issue! Continuing in the tortured tradition of stark rockabilly ballads, three of the bonus tracks - 'Blue Moon Baby,' 'Georgia Lee Brown' and Andy Starr's frighteningly horny 'Give Me a Woman' - were originally available only as rare B-sides.
