Pioneers of Country Music Trading Card Set by R. Crumb
The colorful entertainers who pioneered America's unique country music are, sadly, largely forgotten. These wonderful color portraits and bios evoke a truly simpler time, when Jimmie Rodgers or the original Carter Family enthralled audiences, and when a band could call itself The Happy Hayseeds or Gid Tanner & his Skillet Lickers or Al Hopkins & his Buckle Busters without a hint of irony. This 40-card set will transport you to an innocent toe-tapping era of regional music. There's no Garth Brooks on this down home cardboard stage.
Printed on heavy card stock and housed in a cool gift box. Part of a set of three boxed trading cards that also includes Early Jazz Greats and Heroes of the Blues. These are hugely popular with fans of both early country western music and Crumb. These perennial sellers are sure to please they also make great gifts or stocking stuffers for musicians, music lovers and comix collectors alike.
