The show "Fifty Shades of Blues" was created to introduce some often obscure songs that were performed in the 1920s (the "classic blues" period) and 1930s. These songs were often very naughty and suggestive in nature, and were performed mostly by black women from the vaudeville stage. The classic blues period was fairly short-lived, with many of the artists seeing their careers disappear in the 1930s with society's switch to the new "swing" music that was making it's move. The stock market crash and depression didn't help things either!
