A song written and originally recorded by Chuck Berry which became a hit single
in 1957, and was later covered by many artists, notably The Beatles.
The lyrics of the song extoll the virtues of rock and roll in comparison
to other musical styles, and express the singer's resolve to dance only to
this style of music.
The song has subsequently been recorded by a number of other well-known artists,
including The Beach Boys, Humble Pie, Manic Street Preachers, Bill Haley &
His Comets, and Australian new wave band Mental As Anything.
Berry's version is ranked number 128 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest
Songs of All Time.
Beach Boys version...
The Beach Boys' version is notable for the use of backing vocals which repeat
the phrase "Rock, roll, rockin' and roll."
There is a difference between the LP version and the single version in that
the LP version has more synthesizer. The single version has not been transferred
to CD because of the deterioration of the original master.
