'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Chuck Berry Blues is an awesome recording chocked full of his signature guitar licks! The blues crew has the legendary Johnnie Johnson, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee called “the world's greatest living blues pianist” and “the founding father of rock and roll” playing the ivory keys on 14 of the 16 tracks and bass giant/composer Willie Dixon – the father of modern Chicago Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee (check out his 2-cd Chess Box set – 36 tracks of great blues) along with Matt “Guitar” Murphy of the Blues Brothers and several others backing up the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Chuck Berry. Few can say they were first, Chuck Berry can and after fifty years he is still one of the most influential musicians of all time. While the disc crosses into his rock-n-roll style on a couple of songs it is for the most part a well-balanced blues album. There are even a couple of familiar tunes (I Just Wanna Make Love To You and Route 66) with a bit more soul than their original versions. If you like Chuck and Johnnie you’ll like this CD.

The tracks I most liked were:

#2 Wee Wee Hours
#3 Deep Feeling - instrumental only
#4 I Just Want To Make Love To You is a fun version of a familiar tune with backup vocals.
#5 How You’ve Changed is slow and smooth, I’d take a bunch more like this.
#7 Worried Life Blues
#8 Confessin’ The Blues
#9 Still Got The Blues
#11 Run Around
#13 Sweet Sixteen

Ciao’ for now, peace.
