AllMusic Review by

Twin Best is a Japanese Universal release from 1999 spanning two discs and 40 tracks, all taken from Chuck Berry's classic Chess recordings from the '50s and '60s (plus a little bit from his early-'70s comeback for the label, which is just enough to get "My Ding-A-Ling" and a live version of "Reelin' & Rockin'" here). This is very, very close to the U.S. double-disc set Gold which means it's not worth seeking out -- there are no rarities here, nothing unusual to justify an import price -- but on its own terms it's an excellent collection, containing nothing but prime Chuck Berry.
