bonafide rock’n’roll legend, Bo Diddley exploded onto the music scene in 1955
with his signature shuffling rhythm, electrifying showmanship and a string of US
influence on the blues-worshipping UK bands of the 1960s, his songs were covered
by everyone from The Rolling Stones to The Who.
the 1970s he was invited on tour by The Clash, the 1980s saw him perform with
Eric Clapton and Tom Petty, and in recent years he’s been cited as a progenitor
of a new generation of bands such as the White Stripes and the Black Keys.
he passed away, Voice Of America commented “his influence was so widespread that
it’s hard to imagine what rock’n’roll would have sounded like without him”.
comprehensive fifty-two track collection includes all his single A and B sides
from 1955 -1961, along with album tracks and rarities.
