Gatefold LP version. Jerome Records presents this first ever compilation showcasing all of Bo Diddley's pre-debut studio recordings. The riveting recordings he launched in the mid-'50s, with their unmistakably powerful phrasing, mesmerizing riffs and wild beat, changed the course of popular music and gave way to one of the most personal -- and most frequently imitated -- sounds in rock and roll. And yet, Bo Diddley's unique artistic personality goes beyond his work as a singer, guitar player and performer: this collection showcases his skills as a first-rate composer, talent-scout, session musician and producer of R&B stars such as Little Walter, Billy Boy Arnold, Billy Stewart, the The Schoolboys and the The Marquees (featuring a youthful Marvin Gaye in their line-up). Deluxe packaging with artist pics, label shots and extensive liner notes by George R. White, author of Living Legend, Bo Diddley's biography. Remastered sound.
