I have listened to this CD multiple times and I have to say that it includes some of Chuck's biggest hits, but it does manage to miss some of his other big hits such as "Nadine" and "Memphis". Chuck Berry is a legendary figure in music whose influence has touched the heart and souls of many, most prominently in Keith Richards (Rolling Stones). The sound quality on this CD is very good as it sounds like they put time into remastering the tracks to give it better playback quality on your CD player. All the effort in remastering really paid off and it shows here on this disc how good old school Rock n Roll can sound in modern day. Just give one of these tracks a listen and you will immediately see why Chuck is simply the legend that he is, from the first note on “Maybellene” you can see how he impacted the music industry. He has always been striving for the best quality recordings he can give and he does it time and time again. People who are just getting into Chuck Berry should probably pick this up, but if you find the Ultimate Collection fgor cheaper get that as it has more tracks than this one. Chuck is one musician who needs to be listened to atleast once by every music lover on Earth, I'm sure they will enjoy themselves with this one, these tracks just simply make you feel great. All in all I give this CD a 4/5 because of the fact that it does miss a few of his hits compared to the Ultimate Collection of Chuck Berry, other than that it is great option for the Chuck Berry or Rock n Roll beginners.
