Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Volume 4 (Remaster)

With Kogar the Swinging Ape

YEARS ago I had begun the laborious process of “remastering” the original LAIF’s because a lot of the early volumes that were made during the infancy of the internet had less than stellar sound quality. I began to remaster them and come up with covers for them as well.  This was done mostly so that when they popped up on my ipod (now phone) there was a cover to display for the compilation. I designed some of the covers myself, while other covers were done by artist pals like J.R. Williams, Haunted George, Gilles Fernandez, and King Trash (Michael Deforge).

When I first started doing these, they were the equivalent of a mix tape, nothing more than that.  Working on Kogar’s Jungle Juice Episode 21 was a blast and got me thinking about those volumes that didn’t have a cover, and still had some audio issues that bug the “audiophile” part of me. I began to go back and take a look at past volumes and see what I could do.

First up, Volume 4! Since this volume has a track from the soundtrack of the GREAT flick SATAN’S SADISTS, we used that as the basis for this cover. Adam Fitch did a FANTASTIC job (as always) with the cover, going that extra mile and recreating the Satan’s Sadists font. As always, THANKS Adam for making my ideas a reality!

Here’s Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Volume 4 remastered for your enjoyment…

Holland Rocks Edition 4 Fame Studios

With Wim Deen

This hour of music is dedicated to FAME studios. FAME studios was founded in 1959 by Rick Hall in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Hall offered a safe haven where blacks and whites could work together in musical harmony, despite the fact that racism was rampant in the area at that time.

The studio, owned by Hall until his death in 2018, is still actively operating.
