CD Reviews

The most unlikely cowboy of all
Johnny Heering | Bethel, CT United States | 12/31/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album's cover features Bo Diddley in cowboy garb. Despite the title, this is not a concept album. Only three of the songs ("Gun Slinger", "Cheyenne" and "Whoa Mule") have a western theme. But the songs are generally good. There are two actual great songs, "Ride on Josephine" and "Cadillac". As for the rest: "Gun Slinger" is a fun song. "Doing the Crawdaddy" is a silly "dance craze" song. "Somewhere" is an interesting rewrite of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". "Cheyenne" is a good cowboy song. "Sixteen Tons" is a good cover of the Tennessee Ernie Ford classic. "Whoa Mule" is a pretty good song ablout a mule. "No More Lovin'" is a decent ballad. "Diddling" is a good instrumental. "Working Man" and "Do What I Say" are previously unreleased songs that are unremarkable. Fans of Bo should enjoy this album."
