Biography

Douglas Elijah Quattlebaum (January 22, 1927, Florence, SC, USA - around 1990, Philadelphia, PA, USA) was a blues musician.

Born in South Carolina in 1927, Doug Quattlebaum came to Philadelphia in the early 1940′s. In 1953 he cut three sides for Gotham records; two of them appeared on a Gotham 78, but the third was only rediscovered years later.

In 1961 Pete Welding recorded Quattlebaum again, after hearing that he was still around. He was driving a Mr. Softee ice cream truck and performing for his patrons. Scheduled for issue on a Testament album, the sides remained unissued until the 90′s. A few months later Quattlebaum recorded for Bluesville, the results issued on the marvelous Softee Man Blues with a picture of the artist in his ice cream uniform on the front cover.
