Bo Diddley - Bo Diddley LPLabel: Sundazed Music
Regular price $24.98
Limited blue colored vinyl LP pressing. It's tempting to say that Bo Diddley recorded 11 full-length albums, each one better than the last; but that would be denying the pure, unsurpassed genius of his first, Bo Diddley. Music historians have wasted so many perfectly good words trying to explain the significance of Bo Diddley. Bo Diddley liberated the blues from the 12-bar form and melded it to an insistent, infectious rhumba beat, they bleat. Diddley was the progenitor of all that was to come in the evolution of rock and roll, blah blah blah blah. 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.
