Bo Diddley - Drive By Bo Diddley: Tales From The Funk Dimension 1970-1973
Bo Diddley we already love you — but this set gives us another reason why! Although Bo's probably best known for his classic R&B work of the late 50s and early 60s, but during the 70s he also managed to cut some massively funky albums for Chess — working in the blues revival/funk turnover sound that was pioneered in the Cadet Concept studios with some of the label's classic artists of earlier years. The grooves on this set are amazing — heavy funk all the way, and filled with a ripplingly strong guitar sound over heavy drums and bass — still handled with the same offbeat sense of humor that we love in Bo's older work, but retuned nicely for the hip heavy sound of the 70s!
