On his 1970 album 'The Black Gladiator', Bo Diddley turns his trademark style on its head and ventures into the unknown with a swaggering psychedelic funk sound a la such Cadet / Chess classics as 'Electric Mud' and 'This Is Howlin' Wolf's New Album'.  Remastered here on CD from the original master tapes with new liner notes by Scott Schnider.
