Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.

Buster Benton's version of Chicago blues had a decided soul edge, and was imminently danceable, so much so that it was labeled "disco blues," although there was nothing remotely disco about Benton's sound. His early tracks for the Ronn imprint, including his signature tunes "Spider in My Stew" (penned by Willie Dixon) and "Money Is the Name of the Game," were the high points of his recorded legacy, and both are included in this 14-track introduction to this interesting Chicago bluesman. ~ Steve Leggett
