4.90 11

Bo Diddley's a hired gunslinger – doing his oft-imitated, never bettered thing as a session player here in a formative mid 50s period – playing for Billy Boy Arnold, Little Walter, Billy Steward, The Schoolboys and The Marquees! Diddley's actually the credited or co-credited composer on most of these tunes, too – the dude did his own thing, not others – and it's a great little set of 50s bluesy and rollicking gems. 11 tracks: "You Got To Love Me Baby" and "I'm Sweet On You" by Billy Boy Arnold, "Hate To See You Go" and "Roller Coaster" by Little Walter,, "Billy's Blues" by Billy Stewart, "Wyatt Earp" by The Marquees and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Capitol/ (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy
