Chuck Berry fanatics, your ship has come in, and it’s the Queen Mary — or maybe we should call it the Queen Maybellene. As you’d expect from the Bear Family label, which specializes in gargantuan reissues, this 16-CD, 396-song box doesn’t simply span Berry’s career, it embraces virtually every musical note the man has ever issued. You’ll find all of his released album tracks and singles, starting with an obscure 1954 recording and including everything from the Chess, Mercury and Atco labels, plus every surviving alternate take. Also here are five CDs’ worth of concert performances from 1956 to 1972.
First impressions count for a lot. The way a man carries himself, the way he walks, and the way he chooses to present himself to the world will determine what kind of impact he makes on people. ESPECIALLY with women.
Seduction is all about doing what you want to do. It is not about knowledge. It is not about manipulation. It is not about attaining all that you think you should. Rather more humbly, the true value of being a great seducer — just like playing a sport that you truly love — is that it isn't all about a medal in the Olympics, or about being written down in the history books. It's about loving what you do. The greatest reward is that through doing what you love you can more clearly be who you want to be, and feel how you want to feel. Unfortunately, to many seduction and sex are seen as gossip topics, topics upon which we stroke each others' egos, because we have "answers to the big questions," when it actually is something whose true purpose is both intricate and innate: the reward of freedom.
