One of two Bo Diddley LP's recorded entirely at his basement studio on Rhode Island Avenue NE in Washington, DC and released on the Checkers label. The studio doubled as a remarkable incubator of local talent; Marvin Gaye, Billy Stewart, and Don Covay are among the artists whose association with Diddley helped propel them to bigger things in the music business.
