Happy 90th Birthday Chuck Berry – Pre-LOUIE of the Week

chuckberry-wide-legs

Today, we celebrate Chuck Berry‘s 90th birthday, who’s still rockin’ live for fans all over the world!

For the record, Chuck Berry is definitely NOT related to Richard Berry, author of the song “LOUIE LOUIE.” That being said, there was one particular song that Chuck wrote and released in 1956 that may have had an influence on Richard’s most famous composition, which was written the year before (1955), but released the year after after (1957).

Here’s the original recording of Chuck’s song, which shall be categorized as a “Pre-LOUIE,” one of a handful of songs released before LOUIE, which may or may not have had an impact on Richard’s creative process.

Richard did actually record his own version of this song, produced by Steve Douglas, featuring Leon Russell, but we’ll save that as-yet unreleased recording for another day….

CHEERS!
