Robert Crumb Trading Cards "Heroes Of The Blues", Peg Leg Howell, Jaybird Coleman, Blind Gary Davis, Frank Stokes, Charley Patton, Leroy Carr, Scrapper Blackwell, Roosevelt Sykes, Sleepy John Estes and Sam Collins
R. Crumb, Lightnin’ Hopkins. One of my favorite cartoonists, in a caricature of one of the greatest blues artists.
Mississippi Fred McDowell (January 12, 1904-July 3, 1972). Instruments: guitar, vocals. McDowell, who was actually born in Tennessee, divided his time between farming and music until he was "discovered" by folklorist Alan Lomax. Recommended tracks: "You Gottta Move," "Baby Please Don't Go," "Good Morning Little School Girl," "Jesus Is on the Mainline."

William Moore (March 3, 1893 - November 22, 1951) was the only Virginian country bluesman to record for the Paramount label (1928 in Chicago). As a resident of Tappahannock, Virginia, Bill Moore recorded sixteen sides for Paramount Record Company in 1928. His four 78 rpm records are highly sought by collectors and have been numerously re-released on LP and CD compilation albums. #TodayInBlackHistory
