This album was a huge influence an all rock music that followed. Tracks on this album covered thousands of times by such artits as the Rolling Stones, Clapton, CCR and many, many more. Even Buddy Holly in his short prolific career. Hell the Pretty Things based a whole carrer on this album.

Who Do You Love and Bo Diddley are probably best tracks.

I like Muddy Waters' version I'm A Man better (Mannish Boy). I heard some influence the Rolling Stones maybe picked up from Bring It To Jerome.

If you're a rock fan and haven't listened to this yet, do so as soon as you can. At times, this almost sounds like a documentary on African music- just listen to "Hush Your Mouth". But this is also the origins of hard, garage, and psychedelic music we all love, and much of that has to do with McDaniel's creative lyricism.

Bo Diddley at his finest. No-one else in the blues game had as much fun, or as much energy as Bo.
