Rock & roll icon Chuck Berry masterfully blended blues, country, and a spirited, rebellious teenage perspective, creating songs that have left an indelible mark on countless musicians who followed. His ingenious, fast-paced lyrics, filled with clever insinuations about cars and girls, laid the foundation for not only the rock and roll sound but also the attitude that defined the genre. As one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, Berry has been featured on numerous Rolling Stone magazine "greatest of all time" lists, securing the fifth spot on the 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

This impressive LP showcases some of Berry's finest performances from 1955-58, including many iconic compositions like "Almost Grown," which reached #3 on the R&B charts in 1959 and featured background vocals from Etta James and Harvey & the New Moonglows, with a young Marvin Gaye. This track also appeared in the 1973 film American Graffiti. "School Days," recorded in 1957, soared to #1 on the R&B charts and #5 on Billboard's Hot 100. The song has since been covered by artists like Eddie Cochran and AC/DC and includes the famous line, "Hail, hail rock and roll," later becoming the title of a 1987 concert film and documentary about Berry.

"Johnny B. Goode," recorded in 1958, reached #2 on the R&B charts and #8 on Billboard's Hot 100. Regarded as one of the most recognizable tunes in popular music history, this song is often cited as the first rock & roll hit about rock & roll stardom. With numerous covers by stars such as Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Winter, "Johnny B. Goode" has earned significant honors, including the #7 spot on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and #1 on their 2008 list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time. Additionally, "Maybellene" topped the US R&B charts in 1955.

Experience the magic of Chuck Berry's influential music with this 180-gram Virgin Vinyl gatefold edition.
