Another Dimension is an album by blues musician Bo Diddley recorded in 1971 and released by the Chess label.[1][2]

Reception[edit]

AllMusic2/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 2 stars with reviewer Bruce Eder stating "By the end of 1970, most of Bo Diddley's income was derived from his concert work, primarily as an "oldies" act in rock 'n roll revival shows such as the Toronto concert where he shared a stage with the Plastic Ono Band. But he and Chess believed there was still a way for him to try and reach a wider, more contemporary audience. This album was the result, a valiant effort to update Bo Diddley's sound and image, somewhat in the vein of Muddy Waters' Electric Mud, only a few years later, and only slightly more successful in that quest".[3]
