Blue Lu Barker • Blue Lu Barker Live (REVIEW - Blues Access)

Blue Lu (who passed on earlier this year) was 75 and legendary husband Danny was 80 when they Played JazzFest in 1989, so don't expect much in the way of vocal pyrotechnics. What you will get is goodnatured performances of classic material like Lu's signature tune, "Don't You Feel My Legs," "The Georgia Grind" and Danny singing "Save the Bones for Henry Jones ("because Henry don't eat no meat") and "You Got the Right Key But the Wrong Keyhole." Endearing. (Orleans)
