Description: Forty legendary and obscure country music pioneers painted by R. Crumb with biographies by music historian Richard Nevins. Featured are such well known acts as Jimmie Rodgers and The Carter Family, along with long neglected groups whose sprightly names alone evoke foot-stomping and tub-thumping: Gid Tanner & the Skillet Lickers, The Happy Hayseeds, Ernest Stoneman & his Blue Ridge Corn Shuckers, and Al Hopkins and his Buckle Busters. This is the third in Crumb's famous trilogy of musical card sets, accompanying Heroes of the Blues and Early Jazz Greats (also available via BOOM!/Diamond). Printed on a heavy stock and packaged in a nifty full-color box, also designed by Crumb. From Denis Kitchen Publishing.
