Chuck Berrys Live From Blueberry Hill To Be Released In December
Dualtone Records announced on the late Chuck Berry‘s 95th birthday (Monday, October 18) that a live album titled, Live From Blueberry Hill, comprising footage from a series of shows performed by Berry between July 2005 and January 2006 at Blueberry Hill, will be out on December 17.
Blueberry Hill, a landmark diner and music club is located in Berry’s native St. Louis. Berry and Blueberry Hill owner Joe Edwards reportedly planned Berry’s performances at the establishment after the guitarist told Edwards, “You know, Joe, I’d like to play a place the size of the ones I played when I first started out.”
On a new stage that Edwards dubbed the Duck Room in honor of Berry’s iconic move, the rock icon delivered 209 performances at Blueberry Hill over the course of 17 years.
The Live From Bluberry Hill lineup includes Berry’s daughter Ingrid on harmonica and his son, Charles Berry Jr. on guitar. The album will include classics like “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Rock and Roll Music,” “Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Johnny B. Goode.”
The live album will also include “Let It Rock,” “Carol/Little Queenie,” “Around and Around,” “Nadine” and “Mean Old World.”
