Product details

Chuck Berry has either directly or indirectly influenced nearly every artist in rock music, including such superstars as John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Wilson and Bruce Springsteen, to name a few. His simple riffs have been copied by millions and his songs have been covered too many times to be remembered. "Maybellene", "Johnny B. Goode", "Carol", "Sweet Little Sixteen", "Around & Around" and all the other original gems included here are simple two-and-ahalf- minute songs that convey all the sheer power and emotion of rock 'n' roll.

• Elvis may have fueled rock & roll's imagery, but Chuck Berry was its heartbeat and original mindset.

• This CD contains the very best of Berry's original early recordings, which have been brilliantly remastered to achieve the most pristine sound.

"The records Chuck Berry made in the Fifties stand out as rock & roll guitar playing to the max. Especially when you add it to the songwriting and the singing and everything else. There's your package.” (Keith Richards)
