Chuck Berry

at Starbucks

Starbucks, continuing to ply music-industry waters, enters the home-video market with an exclusive version of the DVD release of Chuck Berry's "Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll," out June 27. The DVD will be released everywhere in two versions: a two-disc set and a four-disc set. But Starbucks' version will include a single DVD disc with 40 minutes of bonuses, and a CD of 14 of Berry's greatest hits. Starbucks' package will sell for $19.95.

“Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll,” the 1987 all-star band (Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Linda Rondstadt, Etta James, Julian Lennon, and Johnnie Johnson) that paid tribute to Chuck Berry on his 60th birthday will be released for the first time on DVD on June 27, 2006


Holy **** !!!
This DVD kicks major ass!!!
The best $19.95 I ever spent in my life!!!
I can't even imagine what the 4-disc DVD set is going to be like. It's probably the best music DVD ever made!!!
I highly recommend everyone purchase Chuck Berry's "Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll."
And be prepared to be blown away!!!

WoooooooooHooooooooooo!!! Rock 'n' Roll was born in my hometown...St. Louis, Mo!!!

Isn't that the film with Little Richard making fun of Pat Boone and the while patent leather shoes singing Tutti Frutti? I recall that was one of the funniest clips ever, LR was imitating Boone's singing and dancing...the proverbial whiteman overbite

Yeap, Little Richard and Chuck Berry both dog Pat Boone on the DVD.

Chuck even wrote a song about Pat Boone that appears on the CD from Starbucks.

I've had the VHS for a long time. Chuck is a psycho! And when was the last time he didn't play sour--the '50s?

Besides the unsettling insight into Chuck and the playing by Chuck himself, the video's music is pretty entertaining, though I don't know that I'm as enthusiastic as you, Lammie. To temper your hometown pride further , the video (and net sources) suggests that Chuck's career was really born across the river in East St. Louis, Illinois, in that club they used a bit in the film, the Cosmopolitan Club.

"When Johnson found his combo one man short for a gig at an East St. Louis nightspot called the Cosmopolitan Club on New Year's Eve of 1952, Johnson recruited a young, largely unknown guitarist named Chuck Berry to sub during the evening's festivities. Little did either musician realize just how epochal their long-standing musical partnership would prove to the history of rock and roll - nor how supernaturally tight their musical interplay would grow."

Left: Ebby Hardy, Chuck, and Johnnie, "probably in the '70s."
Right: The Cosmopolitan Club, EStL


"The leader of the group was Johnnie Johnson, and the third person was the drummer Ebby Hardy. The Sir John Trio became the house band at the Cosmopolitan Club in East St. Louis and would be the start of Berry's long association with Johnson, whose piano boogie riffs would have a great influence on his guitar playing."

I love Etta James on this and Linda Ronstadt too. I had the cd, which I think is out of print now. The movie is great. I like when Keith and Chuck argue. The student and the master going at itis classic stuff.

I watched this yrs ago on tv... and was enlightened to Chucks very uneven and temperamental side... almost scary..
On long island we used to have a ( racetrack ) Islip Speedway sometimes they would have shows there. This one particular show I guess music from the 50's.. I can't even remember who was there except Chuck Berry.. but what I do remember is that I wanted to see this legend Oh by the way , this is like late 70's. So it's pretty crowded and my friend and I were standing by this chain link fence where the gate was.. Up the dirt road comes this Lincoln Continental.. ( I'll never forget this ) it pulls right up to gate and the driver door swings open and out steps Chuck Berry... goes to trunk , opens it up and takes out his guitar and walks pass all of us standing there.. smiling and greeting us.. walks up the steps takes out guitar and starts tuning it up and off he went... playing like crazy good, fabulous.. After his set was over he quickly unplugs packs up guitar walks passed us again, puts his guitar in truck gets in driver seat .. takes off with us eating his dust....
These are the greatest moments and memories you can't become cool your either are or your not..
Yes, I think I will purchase this CD...

Great story Rainy! Enjoyed reading that.
Chuck played an outdoor show in the early 1970s at the Boston Common -- you could sit outside and just hang out and listen -- we did that that night, sitting behind the stage, you could see part of the crowd from our vantage point and there wasn't a soul who wasn't reelin rockin & rollin.
Saw Chuck many years later (1987) at the fairgrounds in Lyndonville Vt. -- another great show. I took pictures & will post tehm if I ever figure out how!

OK. If I understand correctly, here are your choices:

The one disc version....movie only

The two disc commercial version...movie + bonus stuff

The one DVD disc Starbucks version...movie + bonus stuff + 14 Chuck Berry hits on second CD disc.

The four disc commercial set...movie + bonus stuff + reherasals + Chuck punching out Keith again (just kidding on that one ... )


Am I right? Please correct as needed

Is the Starbucks bonus stuff and the two disc bonus stuff the same stuff?

And assumming that I don't need the Starbucks Chuck hits disc, (I have The Great 28 as well as Chess CB the box set), what is the difference between the commercial 2 disc and 4 disc set. Is the 4 disc set for huge huge fans only or should everyone buy it? Or is the commercial 2 disc set OK for anyone except the most obsessive?
