Heroes of the Blues T-shirt - Clifford Gibson

Celebrating those early great Men and Women who where among the first to record the Blues!
Clifford Gibson

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1901, Clifford Gibson cut his musical teeth in St. Louis, Missouri. He recorded twenty-four sides for two different labels between 1929 and 1931. One of the first purely urban performers whose playing had no pronounced rural influences, Gibson's single-string, vibrato-laden approach resembled that of the highly sophisticated jazz blues guitarist Lonnie Johnson, but placed more emphasis on improvisation. Gibson died in 1963.

The underground comic book icon Robert Crumb was commissioned by Yazoo Records to create the Heroes of the Blues card set from which our t-shirts where created. Printed on 100% quality cotton tee you'll find the full collection of 36 color portrait only at Keep On Truckin' Apparel.
