As the guy who pretty much invented rock & roll, it was inevitable that Chuck Berry would have a volume of Bear Familys ongoing Rocks series devoted to him -- and so he does, a 32-track collection that pulls from his prime, his first decade of recordings for Chess beginning with 1955s Maybellene and ending with 1965s Dear Dad." In between are all the standards and just enough semi-obscure rockers (Go-Go-Go, Oh Baby Doll, Betty Jean) to keep this fresh. But this Rocks isnt a place to turn for obscurities, or Berrys sweeter moments like Havana Moon and Wee Wee Hours" -- its all about Chuck reeling and rocking, and its a gas gas gas. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
