“Chuck Berry” by Chuck Berry - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1975Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

The all-important 17th album must be eponymously titled. Also, it must be the one which contains the most cover versions so far. Eh? Que? Quoi? Strange factuality’s aside, “Chuck Berry” contains a few good tunes, including his cover of Jimmy Reed’s “Baby, What You Want Me To Do”, co-sung by his daughter Ingrid, whilst “Don’t You Lie To Me” is the best of his 5 self-penned numbers. This was Chuck’s final LP for Chess Records and, in many ways, it was the end of an era. There have been no new ideas for years. Beethoven shall have his revenge… come on Chuck, time to roll over, let the punks take over…
