The influence of American blues music is deep, profound and worldwide. HEROES OF THE BLUES is a boxed set of 36 trading cards consisting of color portraits by celebrated artist Robert Crumb, with biographical information by music historian Stephen Calt on the reverse of each card. The shrink-wrapped set is housed in a sturdy, attractive gift box for permanent protection.
