One of his more compelling albums, Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger also features one of his most striking covers, featuring Bo as a cowboy. It was to be something of an omen, for he would later serve as a deputy sheriff in Valencia County! If the cover captures the imagination, then the contents within hold it, and then some. As well as featuring nine original Bo compositions, it includes his version of Sixteen Tons, the well known Tennessee Ernie Ford hit that Bo was supposed to perform live on the Ed Sullivan Show but didn’t earning lasting animosity from Ed Sullivan as a result. The nine originals are everything you would expect from a Bo Diddley album.
