Arthur Pettis


Arthur Pettis (his surname is sometimes listed as Petties) was an obscure Mississippi bluesman who recorded only six sides during his career. He is thought to have been born around 1900, possibly in the Jackson area. His recordings show him to have been a fine guitarist and versatile singer. He recorded two sides for Victor Records in Memphis in 1928, and in 1930 in two separate sessions in Chicago he recorded four further sides for Brunswick Records. There was also a pair of songs recorded as Billy Williams, that Big Bill Broonzy says is Pettis. That seems to be it, a whole career summed up in eight songs. Read more on Last.fm.
