RATING: FIVE FEDORAS
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!
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.
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.
