THE ORIGINATOR

 
Legendary guitarist, gifted songwriter, master of rhythm, snappy dresser… Bo Diddley (AKA “The Originator”) is all of these things and more. One of rock’s true architects whose influences still reverberate far and wide, he was a true giant of the genre, much imitated but never duplicated. This quintessential release includes two of his finest and most celebrated albums: Have Guitar, Will Travel (1959) and In the Spotlight (1960). These two masterpieces marked a real hitmaking stretch for Checker Records during Diddley’s early years. They have been packaged together in this very special collector’s edition, which also includes 5 bonus tracks from the same period. Between hypnotic and rhythmic guitar lines, all of these songs showcase a young Bo Diddley at his raw and primal best, and confirm that right out of the box he didn’t sound like anyone else in rock & roll.
