Blind Blake

Born:

We know he was born Arthur Phelps, in Jacksonville, FL circa 1890-something and died sometime in 1933. He disappeared from the blues scene in Chicago, 1932, where he was considered the undisputed ‘King of the String,’ and had recorded over eighty solo sides for Paramount.

He headed for Chicago in the early 1920s, signing a contract with Paramount in 1926
