AllMusic Review by

Chuck Berry was rock & roll's first real architect, crafting songs that captured the rush and motion of life in postwar America, full of cars and girls and backed by an electric guitar style that provided the very foundation of rock itself. Songs like "No Particular Place to Go," "Memphis Tennessee," "You Never Can Tell," "Maybelline," and the immortal "Johnny B. Goode," among others, created the template for everything that followed. All of these are here and more.
