Chuck Berry Is on Top is the third studio album by rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry, released in July 1959 on Chess Records. The album consists of some of his single releases up to that point, along with one new track "Blues for Hawaiians".[1] In his review of the album on Allmusic, Cub Koda described it as "almost a mini-greatest-hits package in and of itself", and as the most perfectly realized collection of Berry's career.[2]
