Bo Diddley/ I'm A Man by Bo Diddley

Label: Checker 814 Year: 1955
Condition: EX+ $35.00
Bo Diddley/ I'm A ManThis is only the third original pressing of this classic single I've had in the store since opening in 2001! "I'm A Man" is the track Dave Marsh lists at #376, not that the A side isn't worthy, too! This is the first pressing with the "web" Checker top. By the way, this was a non-album single that didn't appear on LP for another 3 years. Note: This copy has strong EX labels with a touch of ringwear. The vinyl has notable scuffing and tiny scratches, grading EX in appearance. The audio is strong but misses Near Mint because of light underlying surface noise. (This scan is a representative image from our archives.)
