Product Description

Product Description

All of Bo Diddley's singles from his defining years, 1955-1962, at Chess records subsidiary Checker. Known as 'The Originator', Bo's instantly recognisable sound and beat cast its influence on countless Rock 'N' Roll artists from the likes of Buddy Holly, Elvis and The Stones as well as being claimed by a new generation of rappers and hip-hop musicians. A true one-off who played an often under-estimated role in modern music.

Product Description

(2CD) 2013 collection of 40 original recordings from one of rock'n'roll's true originators! Includes 'Bo Diddley','Road Runner','Pills','Mona','Who Do You Love' & more.

4.0 out of 5 stars A CONCISE COLLECTION OF DIDDLEY'S 50'S/60'S SINGLES FOR THE CHECKER LABEL 23 Dec 2013
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for an inexpensive collection of some of Bo Diddley's best music, this is the one to get. In a nutshell--this set has 40 tunes from Diddley's prime era of the mid 50's into the early 60's, all recorded for Chess Records' Checker label. If all you want to hear is his more popular songs (most tracks are from the 50's) this set will do the job nicely. Also included are four "bonus" tracks--"Sixteen Tons", "Diddling", "Cadillac", and "Whoa Mule (Shine)".

Like similar sets from the Not Now Music label, the sound is pretty good/good overall. And as usual there's only a short essay on Diddley and his music. But if you want to know more the information can easily be found elsewhere. This is some prime early r'n'r from one of the true originals, and at this low price it's hard to beat. This is yet another good example of Europe's soon to change (in 2014) copyright laws, which when changed, will keep music from this period (about 50 years) in copyright--thus more expensive.
