Two Great Guitars came about on a day when Chuck Berry happened to turn up at Chess studios while Bo Diddley was in cutting a session, and they decided to try and do something together. The result was a pair of superb extended guitar workouts that were genuinely unique for their time because no rock & roll record up to this point had ever featured extended jams of this length, or showcased the bags of tricks from a pair of axe-men of this caliber.

The usual assumption is that the featured guitarist on each of the jam tracks got the spotlight, and this is simply not true. Bo Diddley holds his own against Chuck Berry as part of a very busy band.
