Bo Diddley" was recorded by Bo Diddley at the Universal Recording Studio in Chicago and released on the Chess Records subsidiary, Checker Records, in 1955. It became an immediate hit single that stayed on the US R&B charts for a total of 18 weeks, 2 of those weeks at It is considered to be the first recording to introduce African rhythms into rock and roll directly by using the patted juba beat. It was Bo Diddley's first recording and his first hit single. It is on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Featured here are the iconic recordings of 'Bo Diddley', 'I’m A Man', 'Road Runner', and 'Who Do You Love', plus the monstrous first-waxings of 'Pretty Thing', 'Hush Your Mouth' and much, much more! These original Chess/Checker mono recordings sound better than ever

If "Bo Diddley" was charming, this follow-up was ferocious, demanding and altogether dominating to the senses. George Thoroughgood later amped it up even more, but the original contains a more swampy menace. With lyrics asking the question " What's buggin' you?" and answering "Yeah, yeah, you're crackin up," it's no wonder this tongue-in-cheek number was covered by some of rock's cheekiest artists.
