Album Review

Golden Hits is a collection of Chuck Berry's greatest hits, re-recorded in the late '60s for his new label, Mercury. Berry's performances are utterly without inspiration — it's clear he is only in it for the money at this point. He adds one new song, the flat "Club Nitty Gritty," but the real embarrassment is the pedestrian, listless quality of his new interpretations of his classics.

Customer Reviews

The other reviews are from chumps!

I am a musician and am appalled at the other reviews of this album (particularly the iTunes review). These are very worthy late 60's re-records of Chuck Berry classics. The best stuff oddly comes later on the album. It is Chuck, but with a more current Rolling Stonies-ish quality to the recordings that don't sound quite as dated as the original versions. Yes, I love the original recordings - but many of the newer, more modern recordings rock with a more current flavor. If you love Chuck Berry and aren't just looking for run of the mill "Greatest Hits" original recordings, this album is a great pickup.

Chuck Berry's Golden Hits

NOT the originals. caveat emptor.

Not the original, but worth a listen.

There's some inspired piano playing on these tracks. The electric piano adds an inspired touch, and these songs groove a bit more than expected. Check out "Carol" for a listen.

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 be no standard "Chuck Berry guitar intro," the instrument's clarion call to get the joint rockin' in any setting....
