Music historians have summed up the significance of Bo Diddley with proclamations that he "liberated the blues from the 12-bar form and melded it to an insistent, infectious rhumba beat" and that he "was the progenitor of all that was to come in the evolution of rock and roll." It's tempting to say that Bo Diddley recorded eleven full-length albums, each one better than the last; but that would be denying the pure, unsurpassed genius of his first, the self-titled 1958 masterpiece Bo Diddley.

The album was rock and roll's Big Bang, dripping with sinew and grease and humor and understated swagger. The simplest ingredients - a guitar, a drum, and some maracas - were packed in a gunny sack and slung over the shoulder of some smiling guy with a slick process and a wild plaid jacket, who took it and ran headfirst into oncoming traffic. Reckless, yet crazy cool. He made it sound easy. Geniuses can do that. Rock and roll's most iconic album receives the Sundazed Records audiophile treatment with a colored vinyl pressing featuring a faithful reproduction of the original artwork.
