This is ageless. It's good to get back to the roots of rock music. This music still has a great feel and is totally refreshing in its simplicity and authenticity.

From junodog4
It is a compilation, so it's tough for me to include this as a best-ever-album. But Chuck Berry was in an age of singles, and no single alubm comes remotely close to the collection of tracks here. Hmm...

From swhaze
For someone on a budget who is interested in the music of this legendary artist, look no further than this single disc album. The sound and track selection here are excellent. Anyone interested in early Rock 'N Roll needs to have at least one Chuck Berry album in their collection and you can't go wrong here.

Great guitarist, great songs indeed, but why this compilation above all the other numerous Chuck Barry compilations? Having said that any is better than none.

what he said....I remember Berry trying to show keith richards a particular guitar riff, but richards had trouble getting the subtle string bending that berry was playing..I love richards and can really combine blues and rock as well as any out there...it was a fascinating lesson from one of the blues/rock masters.

He knew how to craft a perfect song for the audience he knew would listen...Chuck Berry maybe the backbone of Rock & Roll from the Beatles to Springsteen to the Stones you can hear his influence

Chuck Berry didn't really make any great albums; not his fault, they were singles artists in that era. Of course he may be the greatest singles artist EVER, so why not give he and the others (Elvis, Buddy, Little, etc.) the opportunity to appear on a list like this. I don't usually consider comps for that reason, but gotta make an exception here. This album is absolutely essential.
