AllMusic Review by

It is out of print and it has been superseded by The Great Twenty-Eight and The Chess Box, but when Chuck Berry's Golden Decade was released as a two-disc, 24-track LP in 1967, it was a rock & roll mother lode, the first time that a substantial chunk of Berry's classics had been put together on one album. These songs, released between 1955 and 1964 (that's the decade), constitute as good a definition of rock & roll as anybody has come up with.
