Shout! Factory plans to release Chuck Berry's Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, one of the greatest rock and roll documentaries, on Blu-Ray.

Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll will release on Blu-ray on November 19. Special features include an intro by director Taylor Hackford, 54 minutes of rehearsal footage, a making-of documentary, and "The Burnt Scrapbook," in which Berry recollects his musical memories with The Band's Robbie Robertson.

Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll is a 1987 documentary film directed by Hackford that chronicles two 1986 concerts celebrating Berry's 60th birthday. A soundtrack album was released in October 1987 on the MCA label. The name comes from a line in Berry's song "School Days."

The concerts feature performances from Linda Ronstadt, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Etta James, Johnnie Johnson, Steve Jordan, Bobby Keys, Julian Lennon, and Joey Spampinato from NRBQ.
