Aurther Pettis – “That Won’t Do” (mp3)

Arthur Pettis recorded only 6 sides in his momentary career. However 2 of his 6 recordings are considered blues classics. I’m happy to present one of those classics, “That Won’t Do,” a gleaming remaster, that allows Arthur’s elegant and raspy delivery to shine. The chord structure is influenced by what was known back then as hillbilly music. This inspirational sermon about the role of women in society is unfortunately relevant 80 years later.
