Bo Diddley And Chuck Berry - Two Great Guitars


TJR says:

Not in my collection.

The Pro review:

Bo Diddley shared this 1964 Chess album with his labelmate, Chuck Berry. They duel it out on a pair of incredibly lengthy instrumentals (brilliantly titled "Chuck’s Beat" and "Bo’s Beat") that get tiresome long before they run their full course. Better (and briefer) are two numbers where they don’t cross paths — Diddley’s rendering of "When the Saints Go Marching In," and Berry’s amazing country breakdown "Liverpool Drive." A couple of bonus Bo Diddley sides ("Stay Sharp" and "Stinkey,") also make this digital re-incarnation worth acquiring.

3.0 / 5
