All Your Love

In July 1959 Cobra records released their issue no. 5032, “All Your Love” backed with “My Baby’s A Good’un” by Otis Rush.  “All Your Love,” which features a spine-tingling guitar solo, is not the same “All Your Love” that was on the same Cobra label two years before.

Say Man

“Say Man” b/w “The Clock Strikes Twelve” by Bo Diddley on Checker 931 was a surprise hit when it was released in August 1959.  About this song Bo Diddley told Rolling Stone magazine, “Although it sounds like a spur-of-the-moment jam, Diddley maintained it was written down long before it was recorded. ‘A lot of the things I did in the Chess studios, we were just goofin’ around,’ he said. ‘They played it back, and it shocked all of us! Of course, they cut out all the dirty parts.'”
