AVID R&B continues with its Five Classic Album series with a re-mastered 2CD release from Bo Diddley, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details
“Bo Diddley”; “Go Bo Diddley”; “Have Guitar Will Travel”; “Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger” and “Bo Diddley Is A Lover’”
Musically, Ellas Otha Bates, better known as Bo Diddley, came up through the blues and gospel and R&B world being inspired by the likes of John Lee Hooker, Louis Jordan and Muddy Waters to name only a few. Unbelievably his first instrument was the trombone and next, even more bizarrely the violin on which he played in an orchestra until the age of 18!? We at AVID have a hard time imagining a guy the size of Bo Diddley playing the violin? Anyway, he was soon to discover the driving rhythm of the guitar which immediately became his instrument of choice. All you really need to do to appreciate the incredible sound of Bo Diddley is pop this CD into your car stereo and drive down the open road with the volume at full tilt! That’s it! You will then understand how this guy became such an influence on many of the great rock stars of the 1960s and 1970s and beyond, and we’re talking Beatles, Stones, Clapton, Page and Plant, Dylan, Petty and all points north south east and west.
