Crumb Plays The Blues
R. Crumb isn't known for his musician portraits, but he created a set of trading cards in 1980 called "Heroes Of The Blues." Based on artists mainly from the Yazoo label, these illustrations make a good accompaniment to Crumb's comic book biography of Charlie Patton.

..and don't forget to check out the excellent cd Hot Women he compiled from his 78 rpm collection w/ 'hot women' from a long long time ago and from all over the world. Great sleeve, great booklet, great music. Another reason to buy cd's instead of downloading.
