AllMusic Review by

The 1983 LP compilation Chess Masters is a generous 25-track set that concentrates on the usual suspects -- all the big hits from "Maybellene" to "My Ding a Ling" are here -- but there are a couple of left-field choices like "La Juanda" and "Hail Hail Rock & Roll" that keep thing interesting. That said, this has so much familiar material that it doesn't need to be sought out, but if it's stumbled upon it entertains nicely.
