The Ultimate Collection, Disc 1 Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The first disc of the three-part Ultimate Collection concentrates on the first years of Chuck Berry's Chess recordings and it offers 20 straight-up classics, including "Maybellene," "Thirty Days," "Roll Over Beethoven," and "Johnny B. Goode," but also such songs as "Down Bound Train," "House of Blue Lights," and "Oh Baby Doll" that makes this a terrific overview of his first years.
