"Unlike a lot of other rock 'n' roll stars who had gotten their start in the 1950s, Bo Diddley kept going strong into the 1960s and even the early 1970s for that matter. Bo's sixth album from 1961 clearly prefigures most of his '60s output, while still keeping that classic rock 'n' roll feel he had been one of the pioneers of, and probably its most original interpreter. From the flamenco-inspired instrumental 'Aztec', to the two briskly-paced rockers, 'Hong Kong, Mississippi' and 'You're Looking Good', or the goofy spoken word 'Bo's Vacation', Is A Lover demonstrates what a huge influence the man was not only on British rock bands from the mid-1960s but what is commonly described as the 'San Francisco Sound' as well."
