    Robert Crumb R. Crumb and the Cheap Suit Serenaders Number Three Album Cover Original Art (Blue Goose, 1978). In addition to his well-known career as a cartoonist, R. Crumb has maintained a separate, lengthy career as a musician. Crumb's musical tastes have notoriously leaned toward the style of the old Blues, Jazz, and Swing music 78 RPM records he famously collects, and his band of Cheap Suit Serenaders are all like-minded fans of this by-gone era. Included in the Suits are fellow cartoonist Robert Armstrong (Mickey Rat), film maker Terry Zwigoff (of the popular Crumb bio flick), plus pals Bob Brozman, Alan Dodge, and Tom Marion. All are featured on this album front cover art, in a black and white photo, which is surrounded by Crumb's period-style designs and lettering. Done in tempera paints, the art has an image area of approximately 13" x 13", and is in Excellent condition.
