    Robert Crumb The Otis Brothers Album Cover Original Art (Flying Crow, 1982). Modern-day practitioners of old-time Blues music, the Otis Brothers band was actually a duo (Pat Conte and the late Bob Guida) who gigged around the New York area. Like Robert Crumb, these guys were obsessive collectors of old obscure 78 RPM Blues records. Here is the original artwork by R. Crumb of their 1982 release on Flying Crow. Crumb is, of course, one of the world's biggest collectors of old Blues 78s himself, so his involvement in a project like this is a natural. Art is fully rendered in ink and watercolor on board, signed and dated 1981 in the lower right. Matted with an opening of 11" x 12" and framed with glass for an overall size of 14.5" x 15.5". In Excellent condition.
