“Chuck Berry In London” by Chuck Berry - album review

TJR says

13 brand new recordings (only 8 of which were made in London) plus, somewhat strangely, the 1957 recording “Nightbeat” which had previously been resurrected on the preceding LP “St. Louis To Liverpool” in 1964. This is a real strong set from Chuck, with some terrific R n B, most especially in the rip-roaring “She Once Was Mine”. Keeping things interesting he includes 3 imaginative covers, digging back to 1916 to remake Prince’s Band’s “St. Louis Blues”, and back to 1956 to re-interpret Irving Burgie’s “Jamaica Farewell”.
