AllMusic Review by

The Mighty Bo Diddley is comprised of late model Diddley recordings. While these sides show off Diddley working in contemporary grooves and doing a good of producing himself, this is a long way from his signature sound and songs like "Ain't It Good to Be Free," "Gotta Be a Change," and "I Don't Want Your Welfare" get downright preachy. Pass this one by and check out any of his Chess recordings for the real thing instead.
