This collector's reissue includes Bo Diddley's second album, the essential Go Bo Diddley, which was issued by Checker in July 1959, and re-released with different cover art years later. This reissue showcases the difficult to find alternative cover, which has been long unavailable on vinyl. Go Bo Diddley was Bo's first proper studio album and his first LP for the Checker label. In addition to the original masterpiece, this reissue includes two bonus tracks consisting of hard to find sides from the same period. Between hypnotic and rhythmic guitar lines, swaggering vocals, hot numbers and solid instrumentals, all of these songs serve up a young Bo Diddley at his raw and primal best, and confirm that from the onset of his career he didn't sound like anyone else in rock & roll.
