I was listening to "promised land" today, the rhythm section just knocks my d#ck in the dirt on this!. Im guessing [Willie Dixon] on bass. GREAT STUFF!

The best Shuffle ever...Fred Below.....The master shuffler for Chess records

Ridin' along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity runnin' wild

Cruisin' and playin' the radio
With no particular place to go.

Ridin' along in my automobile
I was anxious to tell her the way I feel,
So I told her softly and sincere,
And she leaned and whispered in my ear
Cuddlin' more and drivin' slow,
With no particular place to go.

No particular place to go,
So we parked way out on the Kokomo
The night was young and the moon was gold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you imagine the way I felt?
I couldn't unfasten her safety belt!

Ridin' along in my calaboose
Still tryin' to get her belt aloose
All the way home I held a grudge,
For the safety belt that
wouldn't budge
Cruisin' and playin' the radio
With no particular place to go.

ANYthing from HHR&R!
Really liked him doing Havana Moon solo in that.

I think this says it best about Chuck....

Of all the early breakthrough rock & roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. He is its greatest songwriter, the main shaper of its instrumental voice, one of its greatest guitarists, and one of its greatest performers. Quite simply, without him there would be no Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, nor a myriad others. There would be no standard "Chuck Berry guitar intro," the instrument's clarion call to get the joint rockin' in any setting. The clippety-clop rhythms of rockabilly would not have been mainstreamed into the now standard 4/4 rock & roll beat. There would be no obsessive wordplay by modern-day tunesmiths; in fact, the whole history (and artistic level) of rock & roll songwriting would have been much poorer without him. Like Brian Wilson said, he wrote "all of the great songs and came up with all the rock & roll beats." Those who do not claim him as a seminal influence or profess a liking for his music and showmanship show their ignorance of rock's development as well as his place as the music's first great creator. Elvis may have fueled rock & roll's imagery, but Chuck Berry was its heartbeat and original mindset.

Hail,Hail Rock & Roll is a fantastic docu. ... shows both the good & bad sides of Chuck...& everything in-between.The scene where he "schools" Keith Richards" is cinema at it's best,LOL...talk about gettin "put in your place"....just too much...check it out....give it minute to get there...Boy,does it ever get there..LOLl

Wouldn't know where to begin. "The Great Twenty Eight" is a must have disc.

Same here. How do you pick one?

If I could cheat, I'd just say The Great 28 on continuous play.

But, I'm gonna pick Nadine just because I love the lyrics. The whole song is pretty snappy but the line "And I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat " is pure pop poetry.

I agree. Pure writing genius!


As I got on a city bus and found a vacant seat,
I thought I saw my future bride walkin' up the street,
I shouted to the driver "hey conductor, you must slow down.
I think I see her please let me off this bus"

Nadine, honey is that you?
Oh, Nadine. Honey, is that you?
Seems like every time I see you darling you got something else to do.
(Alternate verse: Seems like every time I catch up with you, you're up to
something new)

I saw her from the corner when she turned and doubled back
Started walkin' toward a coffee colored Cadillac
I was pushin'through the crowd to get to where she's at
I was campaignin', shouting like a southern diplomat.

Downtown searching for her, looking all around,
Saw her getting in a yellow cab heading up town.
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybodys' tab.
Flipped a twenty-dollar bill, told him "catch that yellow cab."

She moves around like a wayward summer breeze,
Go, driver, go, go-on, catch her for me please.
Moving through the traffic like a mounted cavalier
Leaning out the taxi window trying to make her hear.

I stand corrected on the drummer on "No Particular Place to go" It was actually Odie Payne

So many great ones! Since "Nadine" as already been nominated ... and seconded - let me add "Wee,Wee Hours". Chuck Berry playin' the blues!

I agree that "Wee Wee Hours" was a good blues cover (as were ones like "Mean Old World" & "Things (That) I Used To Do") but I think the Chuck Berry/Johnnie Johnson sound reached it's peak with "Johnny B. Goode" - still a great record and influenced everyone...

If it was just one, I'd say Havana Moon
there's so many -- the studio side of his London Chuck Berry Sessions for instance -- My Ding-A-Ling was the famous one (from the live side), but Let's Boogie is so good too
