(12 month calendar with free CD) This 12" by 12" 2005 calendar contains recently discovered rare artwork that were the ads for 12 of the 16 classic 1920s blues songs included on the free CD attached inside the calendar in a Tyvek sleeve (CD features four newly discovered recordings that have never been released before). 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 2005, as this is the 2nd in a series of 15, all different Classic Blues Calendars scheduled for the coming years.
