From the original info file: Here's something quite amazing. The true King of rock and roll at his best playing some marvelous versions of his classics that built rock. If you've never seen Chuck Berry live then this is the second best thing. Here you'll get all the sources that Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix, Angus Young and thousands of other guitarists "borrowed" from.
This is not the complete concert as the complete version has never been brodcasted. There are four songs missing. School Days was played as the 2nd song, South of the Border as the 6th, Liverpool Drive (an instrumental) as the 12th and My Ding-A-Ling as the 16th. The last one was removed by request by Chuck himself as it was going to be his new single. The middle two missing songs are available on the bootleg "Six Two Five" but on the other hand missing some songs from the TV broadcast. If you combine both of them you'll get 17 of the 19 songs performed. Enjoy!
Post script: CB w/ RH was rebroadcast Saturday May 7, 2005 on BBC4 which this time included My Ding-a-ling. Anyone who got that show please post It!
Personal notes: an exceptional quality video and audio show of the legendary rock'n'roller, downloaded from Dime in 2007. If you don't have it...just get it!
