After the laborious but rewarding work put into their Little Richard hits package (SACD 2028) in 2006, MoFi turned its sight on finalizing the production on two classic albums by the legendary Chuck Berry. Nearly two years and 15 analog reels of tape later, they are truly excited about the exclusive pairing of …Berry Is On Top (1959) with St. Louis To Liverpool (1964). Like the 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.

These are the best-sounding Chuck Berry recordings I have ever heard (not surprisingly). The contrast between songs on the two albums on the disc is immediately apparent; the second album especially contains songs typical listeners may not have heard, but, just like the first album, they are very, very good, and prove that Berry was more than merely a formulaic hit-maker.
