Bo Diddley Best Of Bo Diddley on 180g Import LP

The great Bo Diddley was a key player in bridging the gap between blues and rock and roll. Recorded and released in 1955 on Chess Records' Checker subsidiary, his first single, the self-mythologizing "Bo Diddley" (b/w "I'm A Man") marked his rising star. An instant smash on the R&B charts (maintaining the pole position for 2 weeks), it was covered by no less than Buddy Holly, Bob Seger, and The Grateful Dead - not to forget it was the tune that launched his legendary trademark "Bo Diddley Beat." Countless hits, including "Diddy Wah Diddy," "Hey! Bo Diddley," and the massive "Who Do You Love?" were soon to follow. 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." Best of Bo Diddley backs up those claims and then some with 18 classic cuts packaged on one vinyl LP courtesy of Vinyl Passion!
