Burnside Album Details

Diddley, Bo, Turn Up The House Lights---Live in France 1989

Bo Diddley recently left us after 80 years offering up The Beat. With a career of 50+ years, Bo gave us what will forever be known as the Bo Diddley beat. His music was covered on early Buddy Holly and Rolling Stones albums and his influence continues to this day. There have been a few Live albums released over the years but none are easily available until now. Turn up the House Lights was recorded at the Transmusicales Festival in Rennes, France, in 1989. Unlike some other occasions, Bo had a fabulous backing band---Barrence Whitfield’s Savages. Who Do You Love, Mona, Hey Bo Diddley, Roadrunner, I’m A Man are all here along with seven others and an interview with the man himself. A fine record.
