Description of Product

R. Crumb's Heroes of Blues, Jazz & Country, Abrams Books, New York, 2006

Hardcover Book with Dustjacket.  Book is Like New.  Dustjacket has a small tear on the spine, otherwise pristine.

It comes with a CD containing 21 original recordings by artists featured in the book, including the Memphis Jug Band, Blind Willie McTell, Charley Patton, Crockett's Kentucky Mountaineers, East Texas Serenaders, King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band, Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers, and 14 more.  The CD is unplayed.

"Richard Nevins of Rounder Records first came up with the idea for Robert Crumb to illustrate a series of early Blues, Jazz, and Old Time Music and Bluegrass greats along the lines of the baseball cards of his childhood. Crumb went for the idea and produced what became three boxes of cards with illustrations taken from old photos on the front and write-ups about the players on the back (many of them by Nevins).

Now the famous fine arts publisher Abrams Books has designed and published a superb volume that includes the Crumb artwork as never before -- in brilliant color and on a larger scale than the cards -- along with expanded bios and a bonus CD that samples some of this great American roots music. Anyone interested in high-level cartoon art and this powerful expressive music will want to own this book." - Amazon review
