I'm a Man" is a rhythm and blues song written and recorded by Bo Diddley in 1955. Inspired by an earlier blues song, it was one of his first hits. I'm a Man" has been recorded by a variety of artists, including the Yardbirds, who adapted it in an upbeat rock style. I'm a Man" was one of the first songs Bo Diddley recorded for Checker Records. Unlike his self-titled "Bo Diddley" that was recorded the same day (March 2, 1955 in Chicago), "I'm a Man" does not use the Bo Diddley beat

The band never quite rocks hard enough and no one tears off an inspired solo - A Man Amongst Men is pleasant, but it never approaches compelling listening.
