Unlike his fellow original rock & rollers like Elvis, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee Lewis from the Class of '56, Chuck Berry remained quite vibrant in the '60s and even recorded some of his best songs--"You Never Can Tell," "No Particular Place To Go," and "Nadine" in the decade of Beatlemania. Including all of these classics and more, YOU NEVER CAN TELL: THE COMPLETE CHESS RECORDINGS 1960-1966 thoroughly covers this era over four discs and 108 tracks, 18 of which were previously unreleased. Capturing many different sides of the rock-&-roll giant--including his blues phase, great instrumental versions of favorites like "Brown Eyed Handsome Man," and 45 minutes of a 1963 live show in Michigan--the box is a must-own for serious Berry devotees and an in-depth rendering of one of the greats in his last essential era.
