DESCRIPTION

Although Bo’s far better known for his signature ‘shave and a haircut-six bits’ rhythm and 20 years of his own fabulous Checker albums and singles, he was also a songwriter of some distinction – not just for himself but also for others. “Bo Diddley Is A…Songwriter” brings together 24 titles from the E McDaniel catalogue, performed by a variety of acts that range from 50s rock’n’roll legends (Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, Ronnie Hawkins, Mickey & Sylvia) to 60s R&B and garage bands (the Animals, Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, Pretty Things) to later 70s and 80s cult heroes such as the New York Dolls and Los Lobos. Between them and their chosen repertoire, they show there was much more to Bo beyond those mesmerising guitar riffs and out-of-this world rhythm patterns. The CD also features a rare appearance from Iggy Pop’s first band – the Iguanas – performing ‘(Mona) I Need You Baby’. As with other volumes in this series, the repertoire is carefully chosen to reflect all aspects of Bo’s songwriting ability, from ballads (‘Dearest’, ‘I’m Sorry’) to blues (‘Before You Accuse Me’, ‘She’s Fine She’s Mine’) to pop (‘Love Is Strange’) to the shave-and-a-haircut shakers that he’s perhaps known for (‘Who Do You Love’, ‘Bo Diddley’ etc).
