More Information

Chuck Berry was one of the key figures in the rock 'n' roll explosion of the mid to late-50s.

So distinctive and individual are Chuck's guitar technique and song writing style that his hits from that era have become some of the touchstones which characterise the whole genre of rock 'n' roll. His trademark guitar intros and riffs, and songs like Johnny B. Goode and Roll Over Beethoven have become part of the universal language of rock 'n' roll to the extent that any group of reasonably competent musicians can perform a passable version of them.

Signed to the Chess label, on Muddy Waters recommendation, in 1955, he scored a million seller with his first hit 'Maybellene'.

This great value 50-track 2-CD set comprises every A & B side released by Chuck during these phenomenal formative years, and it's a must have for every true fan of rock 'n' roll.

Run time 125 mins. 50 tracks.
