Album Review

This fine but brief summation of Bo Diddley's career includes all the relevant hits ("Bo Diddley," "I'm a Man") as well as a few not-so-relevant ones ("Dearest Darling," "Say Man"). Its brevity doesn't give much opportunity to cover all of Diddley's achievements — none of the Millennium collections really do — but for beginners it's a good place to start.

Customer Reviews

that last reviewer is an idiot

who would'nt know what good music was if it crawled up their a** and died. THIS is real music and without him, the Rolling Stones, Beatles or any of them would've happened and therefore no one else would've either. This man is the foundation of rock along with Little Richard and Chuck Berry and Elvis. I wish I wasn't born in this generation because I have to listen to the most derivative music and people like the last reviewer.


Whoever wrote that first post is a fool. You don't have to listen to the music, but at least respect it. I hope that he realizes this when he grows up.

Bo Diddley is a revolutionist who inspired many.


Born: December 30, 1928 in McComb, MS

Genre: Blues

Years Active: '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

He only had a few hits in the 1950s and early '60s, but as Bo Diddley sang, "You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover." You can't judge an artist by his chart success, either, and Diddley produced greater and more influential music than all but a handful of the best early rockers. The Bo Diddley beat — bomp, ba-bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp — is one of rock & roll's bedrock rhythms, showing up in the work of Buddy Holly, the Rolling Stones, and even pop-garage knock-offs like the Strangeloves'...
