    Bo Diddley Blew My Mind CD


    Born in McComb Mississippi at the end of 1928, Ellas Otha Bates could never have foreseen the influence his music would have on future generations.
    Bo Diddley, as he become known, recorded for the Chess label from the mid 1950s and cooked up a distinct signature rhythm of African-style beats, often laced with maracas.
    This, combined with his snappy dress sense and a penchant for unusually shaped guitars proved a winning combination, achieving sufficient success to see him tour well into old age.
    Now, a decade after his death, Bo Diddley's legacy can still be heard in many recordings with several genres regularly dipping into the Bo Diddley rhythm pool and borrow heavily from his enduring beat.
    Here are 23 tracks in tribute to or inspired by Bo's beat, performed by some of the finest bands on the rockin' scene including The Bullets, Jack Rabbit Slim, Pat Winn, Rusti Steel & The Star Tones, Lew Lewis & The Twilight Trio, Delta 88, El Camino, Bob Butfoy, Devils Deuce, The Cheaterslicks, Roadhouse Roosters and many others.
