R & B Master Works is a fine selection of Bo Diddley's singles recorded for the Chess Records subsidiary label Checker from 1955 to 1962, plus one later track laid down for Pye International. R & B Master Works serves as a vivid reminder of the power and influence of his music had in shaping the then-new sound of rock 'n' roll. Bo Diddley (Ellas Otha Bates McDaniel) had a big influence on guitar heroes like Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood, and groups like The Clash to name but a few; the latter insisted that Diddley got the attractive support slot for their big US tour way back in 1979. "That guitar sound is mantric, hypnotic, multidimensional, and totally radical" --Page in Mojo. Double LP on 180 gram vinyl, gatefold sleeve, includes liners and all tracks on CD in a cardboard sleeve.
