'Born With The Blues' - Buster Benton ft. Carey Bell

Buster Benton was a great blues guitarist and vocalist, most active in the 60's up until his death in 1996.

His raw vocal energy and Chicago blues soul guitar playing led him to be a prolific session player and a solo artist, and was in Willie Dixon's Blues All-Stars for a while. Dixon in turn wrote his signature tune 'Spider in My Stew' in 1970.

Despite having amputations with both legs, he kept performing the blues with great tenacity.

Here's one of his great songs called 'Born With the Blues' which features Chicago harp master Carey Bell, released in 1979.
