“New Juke-Box Hits” by Chuck Berry - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1961Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

“New Juke-Box Hits” would be the last new-material Chuck Berry LP for quite some time, as he’d be locked up for an 18 month stretch in early 1962. The album was unusual in his catalogue in that every single track was brand new to the market with no preceding singles. Relatively speaking, it was his weakest material to date, although his performance on “Run Around” is quite fantastic – man, guitar and voice in perfect harmony. It was a case of so long Chuck, we’ll see you in a few years…
