"Recorded live at the 1989 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, this is the only live recording of which I'm aware which features not only Blue Lu but also Danny Barker. Not really separate tracks, this is a continuous performance, probably at the Economy Hall tent, and includes the Barkers' "Don't You Fell My Leg" hit from 1938 and a couple of the same tracks later recorded by Danny on the "Save The Bones" CD. If you never got a chance to see these folks while they lived, they were unique racanteuours, griots, entertainers. I see the Amazon shows the disc as "out of stock" - I picked mine up from a remainders bin in the French Market, so I don't know if you'll easily find it - but it's worth looking for."
