Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Full-color, pen & ink portraits by Robert Crumb of 36 early great blues singers and musicians, including Blind Lemon Jefferson, Charley Patton, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Memphis Minnie, and groups such as Cannon's Jug Stompers and the Mississippi Sheiks. In the manner of baseball card, back of each card contains a short bio written by Stephen Calt. Crumb's portraits capture the humanity and individuality of each performer. Highly recommended to blues collectors, Crumb fans, and to young people who first encountered the blues in movies such as "Ghost World." This set of 36 3"x4" cards was originally issued by Eclipse in the late 1995, then later published with a more colorful box by Denis Kitchen.
