New Juke Box Hits is the fifth studio album by rock and roll pioneer Chuck Berry, released in March 1961 on Chess Records, catalogue LP 1456. Unlike his previous four long-players, only two tracks had been previously released on 45 rpm singles, both sides of his record from the month before, "Little Star" backed with "I'm Talking About You." The album was recorded and released while Berry was in the midst of legal difficulties which led to his imprisonment in 1962. The adverse publicity from these legal problems affected sales of his records, and the aforementioned single failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Berry would not release another album of songs for over three years.
"I'm Talking About You" was later recorded by the Rolling Stones for Out of Our Heads, which peaked at #2 in the United Kingdom; the song appeared in the U.S. on December's Children (And Everybody's) which peaked at #4 on the Top Pop Albums chart. The Beatles also recorded it for a BBC radio broadcast and that recording was eventually published on their album On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 in 2013.
