Bo Diddley "The Black Gladiator" CD

CD - $16.99

As a key player in bridging the gap between blues and rock and roll, Bo Diddley released his debut single in 1955 on Chess Records' Checker subsidiary, the self-mythologizing "Bo Diddley" (b/w "I'm A Man"). The tune was an instant smash on the R&B charts and eventually covered by no less than Buddy Holly, Bob Seger, and The Grateful Dead. Countless hits followed, but by the mid-60s, a new breed of rock and roll rebels from the UK and US had taken over the charts, artists ironically raised on the blues/R&B/rock and roll sounds of Diddley and his pioneering peers of the 1950s.
