1965

LET THE KIDS DANCE * BO DIDDLEY * CHESS 8021 * UK

After his beach party and surfing excursions on album in the early 1960s, mostly aimed at the crossover audience, Bo Diddley tried to reclaim some of his earlier Rhythm and Blues territory with tracks like 500% More Man (the A side of the above on the Checker issue USA) and Let Me Pass - the flip of the above issue, which was never issued as a 45 on Checker - Let The Kids Dance and its follow-up release We're Gonna Get Married still retain that crossover appeal but are more in the Bo Diddley musical genre.
