Description

Inspired by the lovable Saturday Night Live white-boy blues schtick of Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, director John Landis seemingly threw every harebrained stunt he could imagine--and millions of dollars in production costs and wrecked autos--onto the screen. The resulting film could have been mistaken for a bad case of Hunter S. Thompson''s D.T.''s, but Landis never shortchanged the music: Cab Calloway, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles all get their moment in the spotlight. Miraculously, the chic-shabby Blues Brothers, anchored by the Stax rhythm section of Cropper and Dunn, hold their own against the legends, perhaps by the sheer joy and love they have for the music. --Jerry McCulley SONG LIST: 1. She Caught The Katy - Jake; 2. Peter Gunn Theme - Jake; 3. Gimme Some Lovin'' - Jake; 4. Shake A Tail Feather - Ray Charles/Jake & Elwood; 5. Everybody Needs Somebody To Love - Jake & Elwood/Patty Austin/Vivian Cherry/Ullanda McCullough; 6. The Old Landmark - James Brown/Rev. James Cleveland Choir; 7. Think - Aretha Franklin/Brenda Corbet/Margaret Branch/Caroline Franklin; 8. Theme From Rawhide - Elwood & Jake; 9. Minnie The Moocher - Cab Calloway; 10. Sweet Home Chicago - Elwood & Jake; 11. Jailhouse Rock - Jake;

Just about the best movie soundtrack of all time. If you loved the movie and the music you''ll really need to buy the CD it seems. Of the online services I looked at, none of them had all of the songs that the CD does which is no doubt a licensing issue.

It seems unthinkable now that what started out as a musical act on a late night TV comedy show featuring musicians in bee costumes would morph into an entertainment blockbuster, but, to paraphrase Elwood Blues, the show business gods can work in mysterious ways. By 1977 the bees became the "Blues Brothers," and in 1978 came the inevitable album, which soared to the top of the charts. With "Animal House" cleaning up at the box office, the next stage was inevitable.

When "The Blues Brothers" movie finally arrived in theaters in the troubled summer of 1980 both Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi had long since ankled SNL and left their TV roots far behind (or so they thought, by 1981 Belushi''s movie stratospheric movie career was already on a downswing and he was exploring a return to TV, according to Bob Woodward''s biography, "Wired") and in many ways "Blues Brothers" was the culmination of the pop culture revolution SNL and the "Not Ready For Prime Time Players" had started when SNL went on the air in 1975. Movie critics, always a good ten steps behind the curve, basically dismissed the movie as a pointless exercise in mindless moviemaking, seen as lacking in characters or plot, basically an excuse to blow millions of Hollywood studio dollars on car crashes and explosions. Perhaps if it had been in black-and-white, with characters speaking in Romanian with French subtitles, they would have hailed it as great art. "Blues Brothers" was the book-end to "1941," clear evidence that American movies were going to hell in a bloated budget hand basket. At a more serious level, culture critics and academics attacked the film for privileging white performers over African American artists, an act of cultural colonialism, with Belushi and Aykroyd the great white hunters pillaging the native villages for their own personal enrichment.

To which the only appropriate response is the great big fat raspberry. One night in Cambridge I wandered into the House of Blues club. Duck Dunn (rest his soul) was performing. In-between songs he spoke about the "Blues Brothers". He said outright that neither Belushi or Aykroyd were very talented musicians, but he gave them all the credit in the world for using their celebrity status to introduce the blues to an audience that otherwise would never have been exposed to it, in all likelihood.

Bringing the blues to white suburban kids, using comedy and car chases as spoonfuls of sugar to help it go down, that is what "The Blues Brothers," project was really all about. It''s clear that unlike other pop culture pilferers who lift black music out of its original context and plug it into their own projects, with no regard to its deeper meanings or its use as a way to transmit messages about the black experience in America (no names, Quintin Tarantino) Belushi and Aykrord honored the music, the musicians who made it, and the life experiences that produced the blues. Diners, churches, concert halls, music shops, even the hard streets of Chicago, all are backdrops for performances in the film.

The film, like the soundtrack, has gone on to endure, partly because it does have that historical respect and substance behind, and also because of its tremendous entertainment value. In essence "Blues Brothers" are comfort food, guaranteed to raise a smile whenever you are feeling the blues or even the mean reds. The soundtrack has no real weak spots and, like every soundtrack or album that has survived for over 30 years, stands up to numerous repeated listenings. For me the highlights include Aretha Franklin''s show-stopping rendition of "Think," the rollicking performance numbers from the film, "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," and "Sweet Home Chicago," "She Got the Katy," which shows off Belushi at his best, vocally, and a dead-on parody of "Rawhide." But it''s also hard to go wrong with James Brown pulling out all the stops on the gospel- inflected "The Old Land Mark," or hearing Cab Calloway twisting the tongues of young white people into knots while scat singing on that old warhorse, "Minnie the Moocher." There''s even the "Peter Gunn Theme," arguably the best TV theme song ever recorded, thrown in for good measure. Sadly, the Jon Lee Hooker number from the film is not included, for recording company contractual reasons, one can only image.

In retrospect, the "Blues Brothers" project represented the peak of the careers of Belushi and Aykroyd. We all know the tragic downward trajectory that Belushi was on by 1981, and while Aykroyd would go on to have a very successful career as a character actor and businessman, he would never be in any project with the impact of "Blues Brothers." Still, how many other performers can claim a legacy as lasting " The Blues Brothers: Original Soundtrack Recording Blues Brothers" ?

Recommended for: Any one who''s ever been 200 miles from Chicago, with a pack of cigarettes and half a tank of gas, in the dark, wearing sunglasses.

Great Album of the Movie and the Blues
Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2021
I got this album both as I''d liked to Blues Brothers movie, and as I wanted to add some of the blues songs and artists on the album to my collection. Elmore James, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding - if you you''re just getting into the blues, this album is a great "gateway" drug.

Terrible sound quality
Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2020
The sound quality was terrible! I don’t blame the seller, but definitely blame the producer. The music sounded better on my tv, watching the movie. My opinion; sounded like someone used a cassette recorder next to a record player and then copied the tape onto a cd!

Disappointing movie music

Sound quality did not seem up to par. With most music from movies I can follow the movie as I listen. I could not remember a lot of the music playing in the movie. Guess I was interested only in Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway songs

If you like the Blues Brothers film and, more especially you like the music ...this is the cd for you. Good, clear quality sound and everything you could wish for to sing along to your favorite tracks. The only down side is that John Lee Hooker singing Boom Boom doesn''t feature, but then i suspect real blues fans will already have the track on his own "very best of" cd and other blues compilation albums. All the other main numbers from the film sound track are here on this single cd, which is worth buying for the wonderful Cab Calloway singing "Minnie the Moocher" anyway. So get it to stick in your car stereo and get rollin'' rollin'' rollin''.
