Comment:

Chuck Berry could've been the King of the Blues . . . only he chose to help invent rock 'n' roll instead. Fact is, Berry considered himself a bluesman when he cut what he [i]thought[/i] was going to be his first single, a gin-soaked, cigarette-smoke number called "Wee Wee Hours," but studio (and label) owner Leonard Chess liked Berry's retool of the hillbilly hit "Ida Red" more, and stuck the tune on the flip-side of "Maybellene." Goodbye, blues career. But Berry just couldn't flush the blues from his system, and in the psychedelicized Summer of Love, the Steve Miller Band — who'd just dropped the B-word from their moniker — backed Berry on the busted-flat fever dream of "Driftin' Blues." A half-decade later, Chuck engineered yet [i]another[/i] comeback, this time in London with half the Faces in tow, on an intercontinental grit-sandwich cover of Little Walter's "Mean Old World." But that's not all: from "No Money Down" to "I'm In the Danger Zone," we've captured Chuck Berry during his blue period — like you've never heard him before.
