28 songs under the Influence of Chuck Berry

This album is dedicated to legendary St. Louis, Missouri-bred Charles Edward Anderson whose style, elegance and lyrics inspired the artists on the Atomicat Album The Chuck Berry Sound (ACCD162) with thirty songs from thirty artists from the Golden Years 1955 through to 1963. It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it, any old time you use it, it's gotta be 'Chuck Berry influenced' music if you wanna dance with me.
The thirty up-tempo sounds featured within The Chuck Berry Sound have a resplendent danceable backbeat, from artists who have their style or a degree of Berry-ish mimicry. The ensemble includes rhythm and blues artists; Brownie McGhee, Anna Mae, and Buddy Lucas and His Combo, Oh Mary Ann. Both songs were inspired by John Greer and Mercy Dee's recording Come Back Maybelline, which in turn was inspired by Chuck Berry's Maybelline. Both songs are stand-alone sledgehammer rockers which you need in your collection. Dee Clark's Dance On Little Girl has a Berry-ish arrangement. I Was Gone was recorded by Eddie Clearwater who was a Berry look-alike, sound-alike and the recording's vocal group resembles Berry's use of vocal harmony. Texan brothers John Dawson Winter III aka Johnny Winter and Edgar Holland Winter strolling classic School Day Blues opens with a Brown Eyed Handsome Man guitar-riff and maintains the Berry- influence throughout the song
The white rock tracks which mainly feature the guitar include; Billy Peek's, Rock To The Top which is adorned with perpetuating Berry guitar riffs, and lyrically it's based on Roll Over Beethoven. Tony Casanova tops them all, he mixes lots of Berry riffs, and his song Showdown is additionally very reminiscent of Eddie Cochran. Dale Hawkins's brother Jerry Hawkins Swing Daddy Swing replicates the Berry-style guitar, and Margaret and Rose Lewis provided the vocal backing.
