Blue Lu Barker
Blue Lu Barker’s risqué song of 1938 “Don’t You Feel My Leg,” launched a career that would continue until her death in 1998. She was a singer and dancer in her native New Orleans where at the age of 13 she ran off with guitarist Danny Barker for New York in 1930. Accompanied by Barker she became very popular in New York and often they shared the billing with Cab Calloway and Jelly Roll Morton. After signing on with the Vocalion label in ’38, her first record was “Don’t You Feel My Leg.” This went on to become a huge national hit and the song associated with her. The song was covered by Maria Mulduar in the ‘80’s, giving it a new life and audience. She continued to perform and record until she retired from 1949 to 1964
