AllMusic Review by

Big 3’s three-disc set Chuck Berry & the Rock 'n' Roll Giants devotes two of its discs to Chuck’s classic Chess recordings and gives the last disc over to the Rock 'n' Roll Giants -- a collection of sides from the likes of Fats Domino, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Little Richard, Ricky Nelson, Carl Perkins, Ray Charles, the Drifters, and the Everly Brothers that also finds space for Bobby Charles, Johnny Burnette, Dale Hawkins, Smiley Lewis, and Hank Ballard, among others. Not every song selection here is spot-on, either for Chuck or for the Giants, but no song is bad and this delivers a lot of bang for its budget-line price.
