Concerto in "B Goode" is a studio album by Chuck Berry, released in 1969 by Mercury Records. The title song is an extended instrumental interpolation of a wide range of theme pioneered in Chuck Berry's classic 1957-62 period, running approximately 18 minutes and taking up the entire second side of the record; this is Chuck Berry embracing the emerging preference in the rock genre for extended numbers. The title refers to Berry's semi-autobiographical song "Johnny B. Goode."

In his 5 star Rolling Stone review (9 August 1969) Lester Bangs hailed this as a real return to form "The Master is back again, and this time he has come up with a record worthy of his reputation."

This was the last album from Berry's brief association with Mercury. The next year, he moved back to Chess Records, for which his earlier recordings had been made.
