UK collection. Ace celebrate the 90th birthday of the Poet Laureate of Rock 'n' Roll with a well-deserved addition to our songwriter series. Rock And Roll Music! focuses on the most revered songs from Chuck Berry's classic first decade as a writer (1954-64) and shows just how adaptable his words and music are, in selections that embrace hillbilly and country, British beat, R&B, reggae, skiffle and rock 'n' roll. Chuck's eternal anthems to the American way of life have stood the test of time perhaps better than any other songwriter of his generation, and it's hardly surprising they have been revived so frequently down the years. Here are 24 of the best and most diverse reinterpretations - almost all of them appearing on Ace CD for the first time.
