This year's edition (which will be the last) is a treasure trove of original advertising artwork for Pre-War Blues 78’s (including six colour images) and rare photographs of pre-war blues artists.

The enclosed free CD of rare pre-war and post war recordings is perhaps the best ever with a whopping 25 tracks! The pre-war offerings include: a never-before-heard song by Funny Paper Smith, the first version of the blues standard “Ain’t Gonna Worry My Life Any More” by Memphis Willie Borum, two unreleased takes from a 1930 Paramount session with Irene Scruggs and Little Brother Montgomery (the latter’s very first recordings), and both sides of Edith North Johnson’s missing Paramount!

Also featured are astounding post war blues, such as Pete Franklin’s “Mr. Charlie,” and four songs by Playboy Fuller from the original J-V-B master tape. All are lovingly restored as close to perfection as today’s technology provides. 

This unique combination of calendar and CD cleverly matches the songs with each month’s ad or artist — bringing the images to life! Also included are full-colour CD booklets and tray liners for calendar buyers to insert into their own jewel case.
