(Calendar with free CD) This 12" by 12" 2004 calendar contains recently discovered rare artwork that were the ads for the 15 classic 1920s blues songs included on the free CD attached inside the calendar in a Tyvek sleeve (CD features three newly discovered recordings). It's a gorgeous and thoroughly enjoyable collector's item that carries Robert Crumb's endorsement, as "among the best music-related graphics ever produced." It will be something to collect and enjoy long past 2004, as this kicks off a series of fifteen, all different Classic Blues Calendars scheduled for the coming years.
