MaybelleneJoe-Alexander-CubansFor a long time it was thought that “Maybellene” was the first recording featuring Chuck Berry. But it is now known that a few months prior to the release of “Maybelline,” which can sell for $75.00, Chuck was playing guitar with Joe Alexander and the Cubans on the 1955 single “Oh Maria.” Released by Ballad records, a copy of that 45 is now worth up to $1500.00.
