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

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.

- It really is a definitive collection

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!!

- Mostly captures the Blues Brothers

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.

- Do you see the light???

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!

- We welcome you Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues...

...the Blues Brothers! Well, here they are showing you what they can do best and what they love most: keeping alive forever the legacy of blues and soul music. John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd took

their Saturday Night Live skit and turned it into an actual band

backed up with some of the most revered horn and rhythm section members ever from guitarist Steve Cropper and bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn of Booker T. & the MG's (no wonder it sounded so good), Matt "Guitar" Murphy, who often gave Chuck Berry a hand, and a knockout brass section with Alan "Mr. Fabulous" Rubin on trumpet, sax player Lou Marini, and trombonist Tom "Bones" Malone. The disc is like one unforgettable concert spawning tracks from their two albums and the movie soundtrack.

Songs like their opening "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Rubber Biscuit" with Elwood on lead vocal (hilarious), "Soul Man" "Who's Makin' Love", "Everybody Needs Someone To Love", "Sweet Home Chicago", "Expressway to Your Heart" among others. You'll really enjoy how the band performs the songs and

how together the sound is. These guys had it! Also in the mix you'll find the two songs from the film backed up by the band: "Shake Your Tailfeather" with Ray Charles, and "Think" with Aretha Franklin. If there was one great blues revival band, the Blues Brothers were it.
