Chuck Berry fanatics, your ship has come in, and it’s the Queen Mary — or maybe we should call it the Queen Maybellene. As you’d expect from the Bear Family label, which specializes in gargantuan reissues, this 16-CD, 396-song box doesn’t simply span Berry’s career, it embraces virtually every musical note the man has ever issued. You’ll find all of his released album tracks and singles, starting with an obscure 1954 recording and including everything from the Chess, Mercury and Atco labels, plus every surviving alternate take. Also here are five CDs’ worth of concert performances from 1956 to 1972.
In 1985, Bo Diddley put together a band that included Ron Wood, John Mayall, Mick Fleetwood, Kenny Jones, Carmine Appice, John Lodge, Ronnie Lane, Carl Wilson, and members of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Chicago, Quiet Riot, and Three Dog Night. He cooked them all a barbecue dinner, and then they put on a show. It's a 55-minute R&B jamfest. Chuck Berry shows up in the middle of this film for a number or two, but despite the title it's Bo's show.

The best hits of a rock'n'roll from the greatest legends of the 50th. A rock'n'roll, the main world music of the 50th years, having appeared on dance floors and in airs, instantly I blew up rather quiet bog reigning then a rhythm and blues, a country and other. At concerts the public at last started rising with chairs and to arrange violent dances, girls for the first time started squealing and making a declaration of love to idols, and musicians - to move on a scene. And not so, as if they have all body in plaster, and is opened, is free and, according to hypocrites, in general even it is indecent.
