Digitally re-mastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Rock 'n' Roll icon. Legendary guitarist, gifted songwriter, master of rhythm, and snappy dresser... Bo Diddley is all of these things and more. His first LPs are among the greatest in the history of Rock 'n' Roll. This quintessential release includes two of his finest and most celebrated albums from 1961: Bo Diddley Is a Gunslinger and Bo Diddley Is a Lover, which mark a real hit making stretch for Checker Records during his early years. Both albums are musical goldmines, positively gushing with the sweaty, rhythmic, blues-plastered genius of this most singular rocker. These two masterpieces have been packaged together in this very special collector's edition, which also includes five bonus tracks from the same period. Hoo Doo Records.
