Chuck Berry Twist is the first compilation album by Chuck Berry, released by Chess Records in February 1962, during Berry's imprisonment.  The title was an attempt to capitalize on a new dance craze, the Twist, introduced by Chubby Checker in 1960, even though none of the songs musically conformed to the Twist style (most of the songs predated the introduction of the dance). The album was reissued a year later with a new title, More Chuck Berry. An album with that title was released in the UK by Pye International Records in 1964, featuring the same cover but a completely different track listing.
In a 1978 poll of music critics, Robert Christgau listed the record as the fourth best rock album of all time.
The record was reviewed by Pig River Records on its 50th anniversary in February 2012, receiving a score of 9.0/10.
