Reseña de álbum

Chuck Berry grew up on the blues, taking Muddy Waters as a particular hero, so when he signed with Chess Records in the mid-'50s, the label undoubtedly figured they were getting a blues artist. Which Berry was, but his bright, skittering guitar style and penchant for writing songs with lyrics that set aside blues clichés for something closer to beat poetry meant Berry's forward-looking version of the blues became something else altogether, creating the very template for rock & roll. It also brought a younger teenaged audience into the game, and Berry increasingly aimed for it. But before that groundbreaking shift in style and demographic, Berry turned out some interesting straight blues sides for Chess, several of which are collected here, and it's intriguing to wonder what might have happened had Berry stuck with the blues rather than redefining it into rock & roll. Highlights include the powerful "Wee Wee Hours," a chugging version of Don Raye's "Down the Road a Piece," a try at Guitar Slim's "Things I Used to Do," the hybrid "Driftin' Blues," which features a near doo wop backup chorus, and a revved up and rocking rendition of W.C. Handy's "St. Louis Blues." Berry's guitar work is revealing on these early numbers, his tone always bright and fresh, as if he was a colt who just couldn't wait to get out there and run. And run he did.

Very interesting...

As much as I love Chuck, I don't think he would have cut it as a straight blues cat. His guitar work is good, but it doesn't sizzle. When he got that T-Bone thing going, he found his guitar voice..the Muddy Waters influence doesn't really suit him. Maybe that's why he helped to create "rock n roll" was HIS sound. Love you Chuck!!!


Chuck Berry's guitar is so good on this album... Never heard anything like it from him!. Really good


Every song here is worth listening to. A mix of blues and early rock-n-roll really define this albulm. Can't go wrong with this half priced albulm. Confessin' the Blues and Route 66 are the best

Entre todos los artistas fundacionales del rock & roll, nadie es más importante en el desarrollo de la música que Chuck Berry. Es el compositor más notable, el principal modelador de su variante instrumental, uno de los más destacados guitarristas y uno de los más grandes intérpretes. Elvis puede haber encendido la imagen del rock & roll, pero Berry fue el latido de su corazón y el ideólogo original. La historia del rock & roll nació con su canción "Maybellene", de 1955; su influencia...
