Chuck Berry's Golden Hits is Chuck Berry's 1967 inaugural album for Mercury Records, which consisted of all-new recordings of his Chess Records songs, plus one brand-new song. The re-recordings were performed in a faster tempo and recorded in stereo. While the rest of Berry's Mercury catalog rests in obscurity, Golden Hits continues to be available.
