Bo Diddley Go Bo Diddley on 180g LP
Friday Music / Bo Diddley 180 Gram Vinyl Series
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios
Bo Diddley (Elias McDaniel) was truly an American original. There will never be another Bo Diddley nor anyone in the music industry who could influence generations upon generations of aspiring rock ’n rollers like he has and continues to this day, even years after his short time on earth.
Celebrating six decades in the music business, this Mississippi native initially captivated millions of kids in the fifties with his first recordings like "Bo Diddley" and "Say Man." He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar riffs and boogie beat, filled with poetic lyrics and a thrilling presence on the stage.
Bo brought his original “Bo Diddley Beat” to the Chicago based label Chess Records in early 1955, culminating in the release of his masterwork Go Bo Diddley in 1959. Kicking things off with one of his finest smash hits "Cracking Up," Bo roars through a treasure trove of 11 more pioneering gems like "Dearest Darling," "Say Man, Don’t Let It Go" and "The Clock Struck Twelve."
Noted for his stellar guitar work, Diddley pretty much introduced his Bo Diddley Beat riff to a whole new generation of guitar players with Go Bo Diddley and it truly served as a primer for a ton of rock and blues artists like Eric Burdon and The Animals, George Thorogood, Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Yardbirds.
Friday Music is no stranger to the music of the legendary Chess Records arsenal of fine recordings and they proudly announce their first installment in the Bo Diddley/Friday Music 180 Gram Vinyl Series with his 1959 classic Go Bo Diddley, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios.
