Chuck Berry, His Best, Volume 1
He created the rock ‘n’ roll vocabulary while playing guitar just like ringing a bell
What's left to say about Papa Chuck? Though already 29 years old when he scored his first hit ("Maybellene," 1955), he essentially created the rock 'n' roll vocabulary while playing guitar just like ringing a bell. He did so by seamlessly weaving dozens of American music influences into an immediately recognizable, wholly original sound. Most of his biggest hits and/or best-known songs are here, including "School Day," "Rock & Roll Music," "Sweet Little Sixteen," "Roll Over Beethoven," and that epic celebration of himself called "Johnny B. Goode."
