St. Louis to Liverpool is the seventh studio album and tenth album overall by rock and roll artist Chuck Berry,

On October 18, 1963, Berry was released from prison after having spent 20 months incarcerated. During his time in prison, emerging rock groups had found inspiration in his work. The Beach Boys had based their number 3 hit single "Surfin' U.S.A." on his "Sweet Little Sixteen"; the Beatles had included "Roll Over Beethoven" on their second American album; the debut single in the United Kingdom by the Rolling Stones was their cover of "Come On," and they had included "Carol" on their first American album, England's Newest Hitmakers.

Wishing to capitalize on his popularity during the British Invasion, Berry and Chess Records fashioned this album to appeal to young buyers. St. Louis to Liverpool includes four of the five charting singles he enjoyed in 1964, the final year he would have multiple records appearing on the Billboard Hot 100: "No Particular Place to Go," "You Never Can Tell," "Promised Land," and "Little Marie," a sequel to "Memphis, Tennessee." The additional eight tracks included the four B-sides of those singles; "Our Little Rendezvous," a B-side from 1960; a previously unreleased alternate take of his 1958 Christmas single "Merry Christmas Baby"; an instrumental outtake from a 1950s session; and "Liverpool Drive," a recent instrumental.
