So our good pal Sal Nunziato, proprietor of the great BURNING WOOD blog mentioned the other day that Chuck Berry's posthumous album was quite wonderful.
And because I trust his taste, I sprung for the album.
Well, he was right.
Words fail me, but here's "Dutchman" -- my favorite track.
Jeebus fuck -- the cat was 90 when he wrote/recorded this. And it's the best short story I've heard this year.
BTW -- Chuck's "Too Much Monkey Business," from 1956, is the first rap record.
And anybody who tells you otherwise is selling something.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
