"The Blues Brothers" began as an affectionate joke-cum-tribute to R&B music, and taken in that spirit it retained its entertainment value, even after this live album topped the charts, sold two million copies, and produced hit singles in "Rubber Biscuit" and "Soul Man". The guardians of popular music have always been entirely too reverent and humourless, however, and it wasn't long before they were levelling charges of rip-off against the Brothers and complaining that John Belushi couldn't sing as well as Otis Redding. So what? No one seems to have noticed that Belushi was as obsessive about citing his sources as Frank Sinatra is about naming his arrangers -- you'd have thought those critics would have appreciated the footnotes. The beneficiaries of Belushi's encomiums didn't mind the increased exposure or the renewed royalty checks ("I suggest you buy as many blues albums as you can", Belushi told the audience), and even today, what comes across in these performances is the sincerity of feeling -- that and some tasty playing from a top-notch band. --William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

An excellent live album, recorded about 2 years before the release of the film. Belushi's strong voice and Aykroyd's ability to motormouth through "Rubber Biscuit" and burn some tunes through his Blues Harp come together with the Band to perform a fantastic showcase for the crowd. An album that demonstrates why live shows are a test of real musicianship. Get this album!

Recorded in 1978, some two years before the release of the film, this is the first recording from the legendary Blues Brothers. Featuring John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd as Jake and Elwood Blues, with a backing group composed of a selection of talented musicians already well known and highly respected through work with Booker T and the MG's, the Bar-keys and Howlin' Wolf, this was an outfit packed full of energy, stagecraft and a love of rhythm and blues.

This album is a live concert, and the sheer energy of the band while blasting out these fast paced numbers is plain for all to hear. It is an album full of up-tempo soul, blues and rhythm and blues, with the occasional slow number thrown in to demonstrate that John Belushi actually wasn't a bad singer at all. There is a sense of humour, with the inclusion of the Elwood solo Rubber Biscuit, which works pretty well. It is a fun album of great music, well played by a band who are loving it. It's a blast, highly recommended!

What can i say, if you love the Blues Brothers you cannot be without this album in your collection. It captures what Jake and Elwood where all about - Great live blues music. It`s not their best work but i never take it out of the cd player. I love it, i hope you do to.

news from hollywood:

following newest allegations, john belushi survived his overdosing
on speedball (a mix from heroine and cocaine) and is in perfectly fine
shape, living a rather comfortable life in switzerland.
he's alleged to have told reporters that that he needed the time-out in
order to start out again all over, only this time a little slower, and,
not like like before going any whatsoever short distance in the fast
lane. furthermore he said that he had used the time for founding a band
and touring - albeit incognito- europe. naming the band the original
brothers, he himself used the noms de plume "jake b. curley", "john
player" and "dee jay pat", following his mood and a desire to go
unrecognized, currently only emplying the "dee jay pat" pseudonyme owing
to feeling especially comfortable.
his brother elwood took the name of "helmood blues", putting up
residence in australia and not being unproductive over the course of the
last five years either.

as a matter of course he accompanied his brother toring europe, doing
quite a few gigs together just like in the good ole days. all along,
they enjoyed european audiences just as much as comments saying they
were a more than formidable "cover" of the all star band, nobody
recognising them for who they were. all the more ironic must see
m the band name chosen, the original brothers.

helmood supported his brother in any posssible way, taking the audiences
by his unmistakable dance style (which some thought to be epileptic
seizures) as well as his laconic ways; mostly though by his hohner
blues harp play, of which he is said to own twenty models.
