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.
