Rock & roll ground zero, which is to say that Chuck Berry may not have invented the music (there being no first rock record any more than there's a first romantic novel) but he definitely invented its grammar (comparisons with D. W. Griffith are thus totally appropriate). A one-CD, 11-song collection clearly doesn't do justice to the man's oeuvre, but there's nothing here that's less than classic, with the exception of his 1972 novelty hit "My Ding-a-Ling." As for the rest, it's all wit, wordplay, sly sexual allusions, and great guitar riffs--what more could anyone want?
