Title: Road Runner
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

EU-only two CD collection from the Rock 'n' Roll legend. Legendary guitarist, gifted songwriter, master of rhythm, and snappy dresser, Bo Diddley (AKA the Originator) was all of these things and more. His syncopated hambone beat - bomp, ba-bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp - has become a cornerstone of Rockl music. Diddley surprised the music world in the mid-1950s when he unleashed a new guitar sound dominated by heavy rhythmic drive and distortion, which was quickly absorbed by other players. This remastered and quintessential set includes all the smash hits this singular pioneer recorded for Chess' subsidiary, Checker Records, between 1955 and 1962. It contains the most iconic songs of Diddley's career. Between hypnotic and rhythmic guitar lines and swaggering vocals, these songs serve up a young Bo Diddley at his raw and primal best. They give ample proof that even at the onset of his career Diddley didn't sound like anyone else in Rock 'n' Roll.
