Release Date: 02/07/12
Every track released between 1954 and 1960, plus bonus selections. 70 cuts in all.
He was 29 and had a string of criminal convictions before he made his first record, but the man christened Charles Edward Anderson Berry must have been pre-destined to become the best songwriter of the Rock n'Roll era, how else could such an unlikely candidate achieve so much' Chuck's finest work came between 1955 when he signed a deal with Chess Records and his 1961 incarceration. This 3CD set features every track Chuck made or played on during this era. The set includes deluxe 'oyster-box' packaging and 20 page booklet with extensive notes by R'n'B and Jazz expert Charles Waring.
