You really do have to marvel at how come some albums get made in the first place, let alone released. By 1964 Bo Diddley’s best chart days were behind him. He was still recording for Chess Records subsidiary Checker and it was they who in 1961 got Bo to cut an album called Bo Diddley is a Gunslinger, which was clearly stretching a point. In 1964 they released Surfin’ With Bo Diddley which is about as bizarre a concept as you can imagine.
