After the laborious but rewarding work put into the Little Richard hits package (SACD 2028) in 2006, MoFi turned its sights on finalizing the production on two classic albums by the legendary Chuck Berry.   Nearly two years and fifteen analog reels of tape later, we are truly excited about the exclusive pairing of …Berry Is On Top (1959) with St. Louis To Liverpool (1964).

Like the Little Richard albums, both Berry titles originally were compilations that Chess Records had actually assembled from singles and various sessions for their 12" debuts.   While lucky with St. Louis to Liverpool, whose reels had been retained intact, the real fun was …Berry Is On Top, where the majority of songs were each on separate spools which had to be hunted down, identified and auditioned.   The result: a miniature jukebox containing over a dozen of some of the biggest hits in music, including five top ten charters by another one of the true architects of rock and roll!   Tell Tchaikovsky the news!
