It’s a tribute record. Do you understand how that concept works????

Might have been better had it been a covers album of multiple artists ala Blue and Lonesome.
As it is, a bit one dimensional and really unnecessary when you can listen to the superior originals, though I'm sure it's a nice souvenir for those who were in attendance.

Yes of course, was just adding my perspective as to why it might not have been a great choice and/or why it doesn't work for me.

It's not out yet, no way to tell if the originals are superior ... unless you have listened to the bootleg that is supposedly out there.

I don't understand this. Ronnie and Ben have their own playing styles. I'd like to hear their interpretations, with the sounds they are making.

That can never be unnecessary, unless you don't like those musicians.

True, but based on the pre-released video of Talking About You, along with some instinct and good old common sense, something tells me that Chuck will always be the King.
To think otherwise would be unrealistic, but to be fair I'll listen to it when it's free on youtube and will give a full review. Hats off to Ronnie for keeping busy.

Just embarrassing.

I wouldn't go that far to say it's "embarrassing" as I'm sure there's some redeeming qualities to the album as a whole (especially if you were in attendance), but I won't be buying it either.

You can still like the musicians, but you don't have to like everything they play.

At least woody celebrates chuck. You think mick and Keith would have on the tour.

Does it compare to Chuck's Chess recording? Of course not. That was Chuck in his prime with an amazing band.

Does it compare to the version the Stones cut 54 years ago? Of course not, they were in their early twenties and on fire.

Are the vocals rough? Yes, Ronnie's vocals are often rough.

That aside, I thought Ronnie's playing (though I suspect it was touched up a bit in the studio) was pretty impressive overall. I look forward to hearing the whole album.

He wouldn't have released that if Chuck would be still alive.

Wow man! Pretty rough on Ronnie aren't we? I'll be picking up a copy for certain. Talking about you had my toe tapping.

Saw Ronnie and Chuck at The Ritz many years ago. It was...interesting. The boot is terrible quality, unfortunately. Good on Ronnie for keeping the juices flowing and giving Chuck's material a fresh perspective.

I saw Ronnie and Bo Diddley w/a brief appearance by Chuck at Irvine Meadows Ampitheater in 1985 , along with John Mayall, Mick Fleetwood, Carl Wilson, Mitch Mitchell and several others.
Not a very memorable concert by any means (too many cooks in the kitchen), but also partially due to all the partying we did back in those days.

From Record Collector - Chuck Berry & Bo Diddley’s - Rock’n’Roll All-Star Jam

"...Chuck Berry only actually appears on two full songs – one of which, unfortunately for all Berry purists, is a rendition of the risible My Ding-A-Ling." eye rolling smiley

On the other hand, saw Chuck headline a show at the Santa Monica Civic around the same time, and it was one of the most memorable shows I've ever attended.
That also could have been due to all the partying we did back in those days ha... seeing Chuck front and center was a sight to behold.

This is a tribute album to C. Berry, no desire to be "superior" to the original, but just a lot of fun!
Music is not a competition, but it is also nice to listen to alternative versions, especially when they are played by artists who owe everything to these great masters of rock'n roll and blues.

most likely Jimmy Reed because this doesn't mean any extra work for him => [www.setlist.fm]

True enough, and the results speak for themselves.
Probably the nadir of his entire recording career depending on who you ask, though some diehards still like them just because it's Dylan.

Again, hats off to Ronnie for keeping busy, and cheers to those who want to have "fun" listening to his tribute.
(...as if there aren't enough Chuck Berry covers tunes in the world already....)

On the bright side, I'm sure he'll sell a handful of albums to help pay for his art supplies and/or some lessons.

I hang around with two of the biggest Dylan and

me that they cant listen to anything from either artist from the last 10 years ….

Can't really blame them Rockman, though there are a few gems from Neil sprinkled throughout the last decade - namely on the Psychedelic Pill album w/Crazy Horse (2012).

He put out a fckng Chuck Berry covers album? Geezuz Christ on a stick, next thing you know he’ll be trying to sell us drawings of his bandmates hands.

I’m a big Ronnie fan but I think he could use a manager right about now.

well, I rather like 'Shadows in the night'. For me it made Sinatra songs listenable for the first time. Like Dylan said in an interview he rather uncovered than covered these songs. He took all the rubbish (grand orchester, violins etc.) away and carefully rearranged to songs. And if you listen to his new versions of Don't Think Twice, Girl From The North County and Boots of Spanish Leather it's easy to see how much he learnt for his phrasing from his Sinatra era

I agree! Ronnie is a great rock n roll guitarist who honors the music of the greatest rock n roll icon in the history of this music. Let's tap our toes and celebrate!
