AVID Rock N Roll continues with its Four Classic Rock n Roll album series with a re-mastered 2CD release by Chuck Berry, complete with original artwork and liner notes.
“After School Session”; “One Dozen Berries”; “Chuck Berry Is On Top” and “Rockin’ At The Hops”
The first thing that has to be said about this amazing musician is that, hey, he’s still alive and kicking. Something of a rarity in the catalogue of Avid Music! We are of course, immensely proud of our fine catalogue of musical heroes from primarily the world of classic jazz music. Here, however, we are branching out a little into a musical world that was rather unsettling for jazzers at the time, the dreaded Rock n Roll! Emerging from under the influence of the blues, gospel, country and R’n’B, musicians such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and of course Elvis Presley were taking the music world by storm in the 1950’s. In many ways Chuck Berry must stand out amongst his contemporaries as he not only wrote his own music and played it his way but his signature riffs became the template for what later became pop and rock music! Arguably without Chuck Berry there would have been no Beatles, Beach Boys or Rolling Stones, and music history would have had to have been re-written! So here is how the main man started his musical recording career. Four startling albums full of classic Berry riffs and sharp as a razor lyrics for you to enjoy. Some tracks you will know of course, but there are sure to be some undiscovered gems for you to hear for perhaps the first time. Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll!
