Johnny B. Goode: His Complete '50s Chess Recordings (Limited Edition) (4CD)

Chuck Berry's legendary breakthrough 1950s Chess recordings have gotten their first thorough presentation anywhere via a 4-CD, 103-song box set on Chess/Hip-O Select Records. These are the groundbreaking recordings by the first poet laureate of rock 'n' roll that set the tone lyrically and musically for all that came after. To paraphrase John Lennon, if they didnt call it rock 'n' roll, they'd call it Chuck Berry music, and this remarkable new set shows why. Digitally remastered from the original Chess masters, the collection features not only such oft-covered classic as "Maybellene," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Rock And Roll Music," "Memphis," "Sweet Little Sixteen," "Johnny B. Goode," "Carol," and "Little Queenie," but it also shows the evolution of the artist and his songs, while presenting a surfeit of rarities, including 16 previously unreleased tracks.

With the exception of two live recordings, all of these tracks were recorded at Chess Studios from May 21, 1955, through a massive late July 1959 session, which culminated in the only time Berry played session lead guitar for an artist other than himself: two tracks by a studio group called the Ecuadors, who, according to Harvey Fuqua, really were the Moonglows (which included Marvin Gaye) and Etta James. Other rarities on the set, aside from the unreleased tracks, include a pair of live versions of "Maybellene" and "Roll Over Beethoven."

All of this remarkable music is elaborated on by tidbits of studio dialog, complete session by session credits, a '50s Chuck Berry singles discography, period photos, and comprehensive liner notes in a 24-page booklet and housed in a unique limited edition digipak with a string and button closure.

This is a great dvd package for people whom are huge Chuck Berry fans. The Pro: This is packed with small extras that show how tuff it was to record all of those hits in those days. It also shows the paths that songs could have taken. As well as some of the recordings contain remarks that were made between takes. The Con: There are alot of great hits that were recorded after the Chess years that are not included such as "Promise Land" for one. You have to be a huge fan of the music because alot of the songs are takes of the original...meaning you have to listen to "Sweet Little Sixteen" 5 times in a row. (this con is also what makes the box set so neat, it makes you feel that you now truely have everything Chuck recorded with Chess.) I would definitly recommend this, but if you are just wanting to hear the hits you heard on the radio I would recommend the 3 CD "Chuck Berry" box set because it covers all the hits you heard on the radio, while this one covers his biggest hits plus what lead to those hits. Not to mention some pretty good jams too.
