Nadine – Chuck Berry

Recorded in 1963, just after Chuck got out of jail. Essence of rock and roll. Johnny Johnson (I would guess) on piano here. Johnny was a big and relatively little-known integral part of Chuck’s success. I saw Johnny in NYC some years ago. I closed my eyes when he was playing and saw shimmering diamonds. And yeah, I was stoned. So?

    Johnson gave Berry his start in 1953 when the guitarist was a house painter in St Louis. He hired him for his rhythm and blues band, the Sir John Trio at the Cosmopolitan nightclub, when the saxophonist fell ill.
