white label promo. (hole punched through top right corner)

While these London Sessions albums by several Chess Record legends were for many of them probably their best selling albums, the albums are far from their best.  Fortunately, the title of this album is misleading as these are mostly Chicago recordings.  While the London sessions are enjoyable and feature some stand-out moments, the punch kicks in with the Chicago sessions, first with Allen Toussaint's "Going Down" on side one and continuing with the entire side two. (If I had to pick the top ten musicians in the history of the universe, both Toussaint and Diddley would be high on that list.). While fans of Bo should go back and get his early material, these 1970s albums are still a joy.  (The extra clarity of the white label promo probably helps considerably, providing the crack-of-the-bat sound that every Bo Diddley record deserves.) -- winch
