  1. I don’t like the sound of this “remastered” version and easily proves, technology is not always successful. As a professional musician, and listening on a system on which ALMOST EVERYTHING sounds great, I am disturbed by the second guitarists quarter notes that are louder than Bo’s guitar, Jerome’s maracas and the drum beat! Do yourself a favor and here what they listened to from 1955 until “technicians” had at this.

    The second obvious problem is; “click bait” sucks. I (and several others I am sure) thought this was a video of Bo in the recording studio. The title says it all: “62 YEARS AGO BO DIDDLEY HAS FIRST RECORDING SESSION (WATCH “BO DIDDLEY” LIVE ’55)”.

    Furthermore, it isn’t even true. When they take a bow, the music is still going. How is it live?
