His Greatest Sides

LP (Item 394152) Chess, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Temporarily 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". (Canadian pressing on Quality.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The vibe is still plenty blues, but has an undercurrent of soul – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Like It Is
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Very nice stuff by Junior Parker – recorded by Bobby Robinson, and produced with a style that's a lot smoother than you'd expect. The record meshes blues and soul, in a manner that gives Junior some of the best settings we've ever heard on record. Titles include "Come Back Baby", ... LP, Vinyl record album
