2017 Blues Images Calendar & 23-Track CD

2017 Blues Images Calendar & 23-Track CD The 2017 "Classic Blues Artwork from the 1920's" Calendar with free CD has broad appeal to anyone interested in Blues music or history. Within its pages is a huge treasure trove of original Blues artwork from the earliest days of recorded Blues history. In addition, each calendar contains a CD that cleverly matches up each month's artwork with the original recording it advertises. These songs make the calendar come alive!

This year's CD has a total of 23 tracks: 12 Blues classics from Blues masters Charley Patton, Skip James, Blind Joe Reynolds, Memphis Minnie and others . . . plus 11 super rare songs by legendary Blues artists including two recently discovered tracks by Big Bill Broonzy! The songs are newly remastered using the American Epic sound team's amazing restoration techniques! Developed at great expense for the soundtrack of the PBS series, there is less surface noise and more dynamic range than in any previous release of these tracks. You will be excited when you feel as if you are right in the room with the performers as they play and sing their hearts out!
