Chuck Berry TV Special 1972

TV Special 1972 is a live album by Chuck Berry. It was recorded in London and broadcast by the BBC.

The 1967 album Chuck Berry Live At The Fillmore Auditorium is more bluesy than rock’n’roll and many of the other live recordings have a poor reputation.

This album has one of the worst, most off-putting titles for a live album I can imagine but it’s worth sampling the mp3s.

It’s hard to imagine the Rolling Stones if Chuck Berry hadn’t gone before and created these guitar riffs to influence Keith Richard.
