His Greatest Sides

LP (Item 394152) Chess, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 46

Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself! The Bo Diddley groove isn't blues, isn't soul, and isn't R&B – it's instead a mad blend of rhythm, scratchy guitar, and spontaneously playful vocals that few other singers could ever hope to touch. This 14 track set features some of Bo's best Chicago work from the late 50s – including "Who Do You Love", "Say Man", "Bo's Bounce", "Crackin Up", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Pretty Thing", "Bring It To Jerome", and "Diddley Daddy". (80s Sugarhill reissue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Enterprise, Early 70s. Very Good+

Natural Man
Chess, Mid 50s. Sealed
A really great collection of Chess Records work by JB Lenoir – one of the more unusual singers on the Chicago scene at the time – and one with a sound that's pretty darn great all the way through! Lenoir's tone is a pitch or two up from most of his contemporaries – not as gritty ... LP, Vinyl record album
