AllMusic Review by

This set collects random and live tracks from two of the creators of rock & roll's basic template, Chuck Berry ("Maybellene," "Memphis, Tennessee," "No Particular Place to Go," "Sweet Little Sixteen," "Johnny B. Goode") and Bo Diddley ("Roadrunner," "I'm a Man," "Mona"), both of whom took what was basically a teen music and injected it with sharp lyrics, electric blues rhythms, and enough attitude and energy to last an eternity, and sticks them together in a two-disc package, a disc for each artist.
