Biography

Of all the early breakthrough rock & roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. He is its greatest songwriter, the main shaper of its instrumental voice, one of its greatest guitarists, and one of its greatest performers. Quite simply, without him there would be no Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, nor a myriad others. There would ... Read more in Amazon's Chuck Berry Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This 1972 Chess release is Chuck Berry's bestselling album in nearly 50 years of hot-wax work. Buoyed by the playfully lewd No. 1 hit single "My Ding-A-Ling," one of three live recordings here, the success of these sessions marked a comeback for the mercurial Rock and Roll Hall of Fame immortal, whose R&B preeminence had been supplanted in the mid-1960s by Chicago-based blues bosses Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf in the mainstream rock world. The first five tracks, all Berry compositions except for Little Walter's powerful "Mean Old World," were recorded in London's Pye Studios with the Faces' Kenny Jones and Ian McLagen on drums and piano, and each track crackles with the master's creative fire. Check out the rollicking "Let's Boogie" and the hard-charging "London Berry Blues" among the studio gems, then kick back to the live funfest in Coven-try, England, where Chuck reinvents "Reelin' & Rockin'" and "Johnny B. Goode." --Alan Greenberg

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to the Master work a crowd! July 16, 2003
By richieo
Format:Audio CD
Like Coke and Cadillacs, Chuck is the real thing and always will be! Unfortunately there hasn't been many live recordings that truly capture the essence of the greatest Rock'n Roll artist ever. This album, however, gives you one side of how great the guy can work a room. If you listen closely you'll realize how much control Chuck has over his audience and that is simply due to the fact of how much he is loved. Listen to the crowd's "send off" and you'll understand what I mean. I read somewhere that this album was originally supposed to be all "live" tracks. However, much of the tape recording was unusable. That's a crime.The first side, the studio set is just a filler. The second side is a blast and Chuck actually seems to be enjoying himself. The album gets five stars just for the "live" side. Buy it, cut to the start of "Reelin and Rockin" and sit back and listen to Rock'n Roll the way it was meant to be played and performed by the guy who started it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars The London Chuck Berry Sessions November 1, 2012
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Side 2 of this album really captures Chuck Berry in concert. It's a whole lot of fun that leaves you wanting more. Side 1 is Chuck Berry in the studio in the 70's. This should be released on CD. Unfortunately, it never made the transition. It is a VERY good collection.

First person to review this, huh? This is a great album that is split nicely between strong studio cuts and great, energetic live cuts. Recommended for anyone who is a fan of pure rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-HAVE for any Chuck Berry fan!! February 11, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Side A has a nice collection of 1970s-flavored 50s' Rock n Roll -- excellent tracks by Chuck Berry. But it is the Side B that is absolutely legendary!! (OK, OK, this is a CD so there is only one side! LOL!!) By 1972, when this live recording was made in England, Chuck Berry was already an "older" performer of older music. Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin were at the top of the charts. Keeping all of that in mind, it is here, really, that Chuck Berry shows his mastery. He ROCKS the house, and at the same time he is incredibly charming --- and it is clear that he has developed a special bond with the entire venue!! So that by the time Chuck Berry has played his last note of the show, leaving the thousands of young fans chanting "We want Chuck! We want Chuck!" -- it is absolutely hilarious to hear the concert promoters trying to plead with the crowd to leave the building. They even threaten to cancel the Pink Floyd concert! "We don't get a Pink Floyd concert if you don't leave the place -- it's as simple as that!!! THIS IS THE MANAGEMENT!!!" Hilarious!! This recording should actually be "Required Listening" in every high school in America!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Childhood revisited January 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well guys,
I was 15 when this album was released. I had an LP and wore it out. Now I have the CD and I love it. It is a classic album, but not a great classic. I love it because of the memories it ignites. I disagree entirely with the post above that cans "My Ding-a-ling" for the the silly song it is. Listen to the way a rhythm & blues master works a crowd. Simply AWESOME.
This is not a CD for the masses...
Cheers
iat
