Death Letter Blues- Son House Son House was one of the last of the old school Mississippi delta blues singers. Son's music had a big influence on both Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters who both came from that rural area near Clarksdale Mississippi where Son House frequently performed at picnics, juke joints and roadhouses.

R. Crumb made a series of card about Mississippi Delta blues artists, like one of my favorites, Mississippi John Hurt. He must be a huge fan to do so much research and work on each card. The country music cards are great too.
