A fine addition to the Chess essentials

""Bo's Blues" brings together 22 of Bo Diddley's more blues-oriented sides from the Chess catalog, many of which you probably have already ("I'm A Man", "Who Do You Love", "Before You Accuse Me", the hit single "You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover" etc.).
But there is also some rare stuff here, including "I'm Looking For A Woman", "Run Diddley Daddy", the soulful "Bo's Blues", a (predictable) follow-up to "I'm A Man" titled "I'm Bad", the superb, driving boogie of "Live My Life" and "Blues, Blues", the swaggering shuffles "Little Girl" and the harp-driven "She's Fine, She's Mine", the melodic "Heart-o-Matic Love", and a silly, jive-loaded "Cops And Robbers" that features maraca shaker Jerome Green more than Diddley.This is not the place to start (that would be MCA/Chess' "His Best" or the magnificent "Chess Box"), but once you have the essentials, this well-annotated 22-track collection is a fine stop to make."
Bo Diddley a natural born man
