Bo Diddley [RIP] - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

Bo Diddley 

Born: December 30, 1928 - Died: June 2, 2008

He only had a few hits in the 1950s and early '60s, but as Bo Diddley sang, "You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover." You can't judge an artist by his chart success, either, and Diddley produced greater and more influential music than all but a handful of the best early rockers. The Bo Diddley beat -- bomp, ba-bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp -- is one of rock & roll's bedrock rhythms, showing up in the work of Buddy Holly, the Rolling Stones, and even pop-garage knock-offs like the Strangeloves' 1965 hit "I Want Candy." Diddley's hypnotic rhythmic attack and declamatory, boasting vocals stretched back as far as Africa for their roots, and looked as far into the future as rap. His trademark otherworldly vibrating, fuzzy guitar style did much to expand the instrument's power and range. But even more important, Bo's bounce was fun and irresistibly rocking, with a wisecracking, jiving tone that epitomized rock & roll at its most humorously outlandish and freewheeling.

Why are all the Bo Diddley downloads going automatically to Amazon? Don't mind the plug for Amazon, but they don't sell most of the Bo Diddley material I am looking for to download and add to my collection. Thanks! Hope this can be fixed.

Thanks Ozzie for the Bo Diddley share. saw him at the prince in StKilda just before he died. His guitar got damaged and stopped working during the concert. He proceeded to pull it apart and fix the damage and started the concert as if nothing had happened. A true Professional

Thank You for these Bo Diddley selections. Terrific site. I can find almost every artist or recording I have been looking for, but, hope you have some David Allen Coe. The original country outlaw with Waylon & Willie. Have a great day, keep healthy, best wishes from Canada.
