Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Of all the side projects cooked up by former cast members of Saturday Night Live, none had the creative legs of the Blues Brothers. Two whiteboy blues enthusiasts fronting the best band money could buy, the project spawned a hit movie and a No. 1 album (the debut, Briefcase Full of Blues). It also helped revive the moribund careers of revered heroes such as Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. What Belushi and Ackroyd lacked in technique--a lot, really--they made up for with enthusiasm and devotion to the music. The 20-track Definitive Collection compiles their best material, including "Soul Man," and "Who's Making Love," and "Rubber Biscuit." It's hardly the best blues album you'll ever buy, but there's plenty here to make you get up and shake your tailfeather. --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars RIGHTEOUS "BROTHERS" October 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
THE BLUES BROTHERS-THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION: Yeah man, I know, i know...Brother Jake has long gone to that great greasy roadhouse in the sky. Granted, the Blues Brothers were more a product than a real band. True, even when they WERE an actual working unit, all the roots-purist detractors claimed their brand of "blues" was about as authentic as near-beer. But damn it all, these cool cats introduced me to the likes of Sam and Dave, Junior Wells, Solomon Burke, and countless other RNB masters when I was just a naive teen hopelessly hooked on KISS and Meat Loaf. Maybe John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd were no Ray Charles or Little Walter in the vocal and harp departments respectively, but they had heart 'n soul to spare and were shrewd enough to surround themselves with living legends of the musical world. The Stax studio dream team of former MG's Steve "The Colonel" Cropper and Duck Dunn were legitmate old pros on beloved standards like SOUL MAN, WHO'S MAKIN' LOVE, SWEET HOME CHICAGO, GOIN' BACK TO MIAMI and HEY BARTENDER. Most important of all, hearing these horn-heavy renditions made me want to check out the originals, which of course, have never been bested. So, i'm sending out a heartfelt "thank you" to Jake and Elwood, for introducing me to my first musical love, the blues. You will forever remain Brothers in my soul.

RATING: FIVE FEDORAS

5.0 out of 5 stars Good memories, good times, good music!!! September 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
How can anyone not love this stuff? Well, maybe the young kids would roll their eyes but they just don't get it.
I watch the movie every time I see that it is on. But oddly enough, I just purchased the music for the first time recently and have listened to it ALOT, it brightens up those 45 minute, stuck-in- traffic mornings. With this collection, you get 20 of 35 BB cuts and that isn't bad. Want you do not get is not missed because all the best is on this one CD.
Also, recommended is the new BB 2000 soundtrack. The movie is so-so, some funny moments (Belushi is sorely missed), but the music is wonderful. Pick up both if you get the chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars It really is a definitive collection September 28, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Excellent collection of Blues Brothers songs. All of their hits are here, from a live show and from the Blues Brothers soundtrack. Difficult to choose a favorite, but Soul Man, Who's Making Love, Expressway To Your Heart, and Everybody Needs Somebody To Love are classics. And their jam Sweet Home Chicago shows how great a band they are. A must buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Rest February 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Of all The Blues Brothers recordings, this is the best. It gives you their greatest songs all on one CD. If you want one BB CD get this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Better: December 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Everyone raves about his album.
It certianly deserves it. The Blues Brothers and their allstar band were a musical miracle, and everyone of their songs is precious. Buying one of their albums is getting a unheard of greatest hits album of Soul, R&B, and a few others mixed in to keep it interesting.
But why settle for 20 songs when they released 35 or so?
Buy Blues Brothers Complete (it's about 80% more expensive [$18 or so]) but well worth it, as this album is missing the funky She Caught The Katy, very well done Perry Mason Theme, the memorable Shotgun Blues and Groove Me (both underatted) and others to round out the complete set.
Blues Brothers Complete can be found also on amazon.com
where, that's your job to find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you see the light??? December 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
While Jake and Elwood (which, by the way, we named our dogs) may not have been the most talented vocalists, these 2 guys had more heart and devotion to rhythm and blues than a lot of people in the music business back in the late 70's and early 80's. Dan and John introduced a lot of people to music that had not only been around for several years, but was (and still is) vitally important to American music. In addition to that, they helped revive the careers of a number of people, such as Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and James Brown. While anyone that appreciates truly great music realizes the careers of such great American musical icons shouldn't have required revitalization, Dan and John helped to bring true R&B back into the limelight. In doing so, they also helped bring attention to many R&B greats that had already passed on, but were (and still are) so important to not only R&B, but music as a whole. If you're looking for some truly great music, and are tired of the mundane, lackluster tones that permeate the airwaves these days, do yourself a favor and buy this album (yes, I realize I'm dating myself here) or CD, and introduce yourself to some real music; music that comes not only from the heart and soul, but from somewhere even deeper. Considering where we are now, what Jake and Elwood did for American music in their time will likely never be imitated or reproduced in our lifetime. Thank you Dan and John!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly captures the Blues Brothers April 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent Blues Brothers compilation that definitely shows them at their best. Excellent horns, nice guitar work, and vocals from the Blues Brothers make this album a must-have for any fan of the Blues Brothers movie.

There are a few tracks that definitely could have been substituted for a part of the soundtrack. "Jailhouse Rock" and "She Caught the Katy" should not have been left off this album but were for whatever reason. Still a very solid compilation.
