"Reff's illuminating critiques make for fascinating reading... The International Tours segment, at over 50 pages long, is mind-blowing... A monumental piece of work, this is a must-have for the Berry completist." Now Dig This

"Reff's continued catalogue of Berry's vinyl, bootlegs, film and TV soundtrack appearances is punctuated with engaging anecdotes and honest reviewing.  Mind-bogglingly comprehensive." Record Collector

"As with the previous volume, it is illustrated throughout with masses of photos, labels and book, LP and CD covers, etc and the whole job is as jaw-dropping as the first, still keeping the interest going despite the presence of many pages of mere lists.  Still to come later this year are the two remaining volumes... but in the meantime, anyone still dipping with fascinated gratitude into Volume 1 can quite safely put this one on their “must have” lists."  Blues & Rhythm

"You might imagine that only a Chuck Berry completist would have interest in a book of this nature, but you'd be wrong... Though I'm nowhere near a completist, I'm a fan and I did learn about a couple of things I want to add to my collection from the book.  I also in particular enjoyed the sections on Chuck's own influences, including derivations for a number of Chuck's "original" songs ... It's also fair to credit Chuck as the most influential rock guitar player ever, I think, and there are quotes from a great number of other guitarists who feel the same...  Check out Morten's monumental work!"  Blue Suede News
