August 7, 2017 Records of the Day

 

 

 

 

It seems strange and unbelievable that with all the classic hits he had, Chuck Berry’s only #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit came in 1972 with “My Ding-a-Ling.”  The closest he came prior to that was in 1958 with “Sweet Little Sixteen” on Chess records, which reached #2. The “Sweet Little Sixteen” 45 is worth up to $50.00. The 78rpm version can get you $200.00 and the “Sweet Little 16” EP can sell for $400.00 today.
