Introduced to Chess Records by fellow blues rocker Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry hit a goldmine immediately with his arsenal of tunes that he presented to Phil and Leonard Chess. These great songs culminated in a handful of top charting singles which led to his first legendary album After School Session. Kicking things off with the monumental "School Day (Ring Ring Goes The Bell)," Berry roars through a bevy of 11 more home runs which helped make this one of the most important albums of all time. The album collects additional gems like "Brown Eyed Handsome Man," "Too Much Monkey Business," "Havana Moon" and "No Money Down."
Noted for his stellar guitar work, pretty much introducing the turnaround riff to a whole new generation of guitar players, After School Session was truly a primer for many rock and blues artists that followed including Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Johnny Winter, The Animals and The Yardbirds.
