Not to be confused with 1958’s collection of singles, also entitled Bo Diddley, this here is one of the 3 classic studio albums Diddley released in 1962. Part of Diddley’s allure and brilliance was the ability to come up with new and classic material, seemingly at will, and that talent is on full display here. Although it doesn’t include any of his chart topping hit singles, 1962’s Bo Diddley features 12 tracks that match any of his previous work in wit, groove, and stellar, hypnotic guitar work. Never one to miss a trend, Diddley cashes in on the Twist craze of 1962 with a couple twistin’ numbers of his own (“Mama Don’t Allow No Twistin’” and “Bo’s Twist”). He also amusingly covers politics of the day (“Mr. Khrushchev”), infidelity (“Who May Your Lover Be”), and a whole bunch more. Another Bo Diddley classic on RUMBLE!
