Chuck Berry, one
of the most consistent rock and roll performers, delves into the
standard catalogue and comes up with a great oldie which he revamps
in his unique style and sends across in strong commercial fashion.
Working against a good cha cha backdrop, Chuck chantsthe wonderful
evergreen "That's My Desire" in a manner that should be strongly
received by the teeners. Big side to watch closely. Flip, "Anthony
Boy", has the ace betting a cute Italian flavored bouncer. Upper
end in the big one.
