ROLLING STONES SONGS: ‘DIDDLEY DADDY’ (2012)

Rolling Stones songs: ‘Diddley Daddy’
Written by: McDaniel (Bo Diddley)
Recorded: IBC Studios, London, England, March 11, 1963

From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
It was 1963 and it was time for the Stones to book themselves into the IBC studios. The outcome of the sessions are distinctly blues flavoured. Diddley Daddy is a Bo Diddley number and is performed in true Rhythm and Blues style. The song, although rough in texture, is guided by Mick Jagger’s roots vocals and features two instrumental breaks: the first by Brian Jones on the harmonica and he second by Ian Stewart tinkering on the ivories to the fade out.
