New Juke Box Hits is a Chuck Berry album which was released in 1961 under Chess Records. This was Berry's fifth album under record label Chess Records. The album was recorded and later released while Berry was in the middle of certain legal difficulties that would see him put in jail the following year in 1962. This was not good for his publicity and hence it affected his record sales, and there were no hits on the album. The one single on the album was "I'm Talking About You" which was later recorded, with some commercial success, by the Rolling Stones.
