Our second series of 'Into The Archives' dives deep into the American Berry catalogue.
American Berry Music was founded in 1944 by songwriter Irving Berman. Initially, the company's focus was on publishing pop music and standards. In the 1950s and 1960s, American Berry Music began to expand its catalogue to include rhythm and blues, rock and roll, and other genres. Some of the notable artists whose songs were published by American Berry Music include Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and The Coasters.
Included in the American Berry catalogue is the rock and roll classic 'Have Love Will Travel'. The song was originally written and recorded by Richard Berry in 1959 and it was later covered by many artists, including The Sonics, The Black Keys, Thee Headcoatees, and Thee Oh Sees.
Richard Berry's 'Have Love Will Travel' has remained popular for over six decades and continues to be a beloved hit. Don't miss our placement of The Sonics' cover of this classic tune below!
