Anyone who knows R. Crumb's work as an illustrator knows of his passion for music. And all those who collect his work prize the "e;Heroes of the Blues, Early Jazz Greats,"e; and "e;Pioneers of Country Music"e; trading card sets he created in the early to- mid-1980s. Now they are packaged together for the first time in book form, along with an exclusive 21-track CD of music selected and compiled by Crumb himself (featuring original recordings by Charley Patton, "e;Dock"e; Boggs, "e;Jelly Roll"e; Morton, and others). A bio of each musician is provided, along with a full-color original illustration by the cartoonist. A characteristically idiosyncratic tribute by an underground icon to the musical innovators who helped inspire him, "e;R. Crumb's Heroes of Blues, Jazz & Country"e; is a must-have collection for Crumb aficionados, comics fans, and music lovers alike.
