Double vinyl LP set containing three complete original albums plus bonus tracks. The world is mourning the loss of rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry. The iconic guitarist, singer and songwriter passed away at his home at the age of 90. His impact on popular music cannot be underestimated. John Lennon once commented: 'If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry'. Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive. Writing clever lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism and developing a signature style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music. One Dozen Berrys was the second studio album by Berry, released in 1958. Rockin' at the Hops was his fourth studio album, released in 1960. It's opening track, 'Bye Bye Johnny', is a sequel to Berry's earlier hit, 'Johnny B. Goode'. New Juke Box Hits, his fifth studio album, was released in 1961. It was recorded and released while Berry was in the midst of legal difficulties, which led to his imprisonment in 1962. Also presented here are several bonus tracks, including 'Back in the U.S.A.', a Top 40 hit in 1959.
