Wow, the Bo Diddley film is awesome! So that's how you make records. Bo backed by one dude and five wimmins. It certainly worked for him!
Thanks for the link.

Hope ya'll got to see these Bo videos before Youtube pulled them over a copyright claim...

Hopefully these clips will be formally released soon in some sort of full-length proper Bo Diddley documentary, cos they were hot!
