T.B. Blues

The Mad-Hatters  From the Greene County Tuberculosis Society of Springfield, Missouri.  Here’s a rarity – a simple DIY paste-on front cover with these simple, odd paper “creations” representing some of the songs inside.  All having to do with the ill effects and respiratory problems of having Tuberculosis.  This is incredibly strange.  (Thanks to Will and Show and Tell Music, who might have more to add…)
