Today 1926 Chuck Berry born

Charles Edward Anderson Berry was born on Oct 18, 1926 in St Louis, MO
So it's time for some good old r'n'roll and have fun again with that great Ding-A-Ling for over 11 minutes (the single version is just a extraction of about 5 minutes..) !!

Berry, Chuck - The London Chuck Berry Sessions 1972

01-Let's Boogie
02-Mean Old World
03-I Will Not Let You Go
04-London Berry Blues
05-I Love You
06-Reelin' And Rockin'
07-My Ding-A-Ling
08-Johnny B Goode

This half studio/half live record spawned the surprise #1 hit My Ding-A-Ling and marked the pinnacle of Chuck Berry's commercial peak, but is often overlooked in favor of his golden-era late 50s LPs. What a shame. On the five studio tracks here, Chuck Berry is ingeniously backed by the Faces' Ian McLagen and Kenny Jones (on piano and drums respectively) for a set that simultaneously sounds as if it could stop on a dime or fall apart at the end of every bar. For a record that was aimed to be Chuck Berry's answer to the early 70s Rock n' Roll revival scene, there couldn't have been a more fitting pair to back him up. For me it's pretty entertaining to hear Chuck Berry's command over his audience in the three live tracks.

To be continued in the comment.

Hello Jean...I do not need this music but wanted to thank you for the post. I live in St Louis and it was mentioned this morning on the news that it was Chuck's birthday. I have seen him various times away from the stage and have
always enjoyed his music. Thanks for sharing the information on this
still living legend. It has been a while since I have visited your site but I do plan on returning soon.
Yes, thanks Jean. This one I picked up a few years back when my Mama went to her rest in peace.
