Robert Crumb has come in for severe disapproval. In which case, the censors will hate this old video.
It was recorded on April 29, 2011 at the Society of Illustrators in New York City, where the exhibition ran from March 23 to April 30. Curated by Monte Beauchamp, editor of The Life and Times of R. Crumb, the show was a retrospective that presented key pieces culled from the underground art collection of Eric Sack, with contributions from Paul Morris and John Lautemann. The laid-on soundtrack is “Pennies From Heaven,” from “Ben Webster: King of the Tenors” (part one); a selection from Satie’s “Nocturnes,” played by Aldo Ciccolini (part two); and “Honeysuckle Rose,” played by Count Basie & His Orchestra.
