Product Notes

Chuck Berry's Landmark First Album!Chuck Berry is an American original. There will never be another Chuck Berry, nor anyone in the music industry who could influence generations upon generations of aspiring rock ‘n rollers like Chuck has.Celebrating six decades in the music business, this East St. Louis native initially captivated millions of kids in the fifties with his first recordings like Maybellene and Roll Over Beethoven. He drove the rockers mad with his famous guitar licks, poetic lyrics and dynamic presence on the stage.Introduced to Chess Records by fellow blues rocker Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry hit a goldmine immediately with his arsenal of tunes that he presented to Phil and Leonard Chess. These great songs culminated into a handful of top charting singles which led to his first legendary album After School Session.Kicking things off with one of the monumental rock and roll records of all time School Day (Ring Ring Goes The Bell), Chuck Berry roars through a bevy of 11 more home runs which made this one of the most important and emulated albums of all time. The album features classic gems like Brown Eyed Handsome Man, Too Much Monkey Business, Havana Moon and No Money Down. Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing the turnaround riff to a whole new generation of guitar players, After School Session was truly a primer for a ton of rock and blues artists for years like Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Johnny Winter, The Animals and The Yardbirds.Chuck Berry was more than a rock ‘n roll genius. He was a natural poet. He could rhyme. He could compose lyrically two and three minute musical stories about the everyday man and woman, about the struggles of being a teenager, about romance, about cars, about faraway places, about dancing, and most notably about rock ‘n rollin.'His unconventional approach to music was unlike that of anyone before him. He opened the doors for millions of music fans around the world to enjoy rock and blues, making him one of the first pioneers of the popular recording business that we all enjoy to this day. Track Listing:1.
