This issue has probably been released in 1971. Chess then used these Labels.

Not sure if it's just my copy or AT 120 record player, but there are skips all over the place. Very disappointed.

I have a copy of this wonderful record. An original I believe. It has the yellow box on the front cover and the rare blue with silver writing label (not to be confused with the later blue fade labels). Does anybody have any info on this pressing? Is the blue label also a first press like the black and silver?

Isn't there a Stereo repress in the 60's or 70's with a blue fade label?

This is essential to anyone's collection of classic rock and roll. Although Chuck's only real 'hit' was the abysmal 'My Ding-A-Ling', he was responsible for at least two albums full of other people's hits.
I consider Berry the true 'King of Rock and Roll'. His guitar style practically invented what became rock. Unlike Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry wrote his own material, and the quality of his lyrics often entered the realm of poetry, with images of 'coffee colored Cadillacs' and 'hurry home drop tears'.
This first album for Chess record finds five bona fide Berry classics. Side one kicks off with one of the first rock and roll anthems, "School Days" with the knowing lyric "and the guy behind you won't leave you alone'. The exhilarating finish, with Chuck proclaiming 'hail, hail rock and roll' only testifies to the exuberance of the new musical medium.
'Too Much Monkey Business' features Chuck's now-famous shotgun delivery of clever lyrics (to be imitated by Dylan quite well on his 'Subterranean Homesick Blues'). The verses tell of the many frustrations of teenage life. 'Same thing everyday, gettin' up, go to school, no need to be complaining, my objection's overruled.' Wonderful stuff.
"No Money Down" is one of the many Berry tunes that's centers around the automobile. It's a tribute to Berry's wordplay that you aren't always certain whether he's singing about a car or a girl, so consuming are the passions of each. (Would have really been nice to include 'Maybellene' on this collection.)
"Brown Eyed Handsome Man" is black pride without being obnoxious and "in your face" about it, as so many lesser talents have done through the years. Once again, the quality of the writing is exemplary. At a time when myriads of 'moon, spoon, balloon' rhymes were strung together, Berry is penning "Milo Venus was a beautiful lass, she had the world in the palm of her hand. She lost both her arms in a wrestling match to meet a brown eyed handsome man".
To this day, one of the strangest songs I have ever heard is the obscure Berry track "Downbound Train". A tale of a drunkard's nightmare, it's a 'Twilight Zone' screenplay complete in under three minutes.
An island-style rhythm is featured in 'Havana Moon', along with some blues instrumentals. The blues numbers, to me, are the weakest cuts. Chuck was always best at rock and roll.
A man with incredible style and intelligence, Chuck Berry was no technical genius, and he's been winging it with live shows for decades. It's enough that he is Chuck Berry.
And this is possibly the greatest rock and roll album ever released.
