The Blues Brothers - Briefcase Full Of Blues (Full Album)
Briefcase Full Of Blues is the first album by The Blues Brothers, released on November 28, 1978 by Atlantic Records. The album reached #1 on the Billboard 200 and went double platinum. Two singles were released, Rubber Biscuit which reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Soul Man, which reached number 14.
The Blues Brothers originated as a Saturday Night Live skit, featuring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi (1949-1982), and would eventually make the outstanding comedy film, The Blues Brothers. Sadly, Belushi died in 1982 from an accidental speedball overdose when he was only 33. Eventually, Aykroyd fond a replacement, in Brother "Zee" Blues, played by James "Jim" Belushi, the latter who is John Belushi's younger brother.
