|Tom Davis hosts a Blues Brothers retrospective that tells the whole truth about the legendary band's early days and righteous ways. The Blues Brothers were an unforgettable part of Saturday Night Live's golden era, making their musical debut in bee costumes singing "I'm A King Bee," and becoming an overnight sensation. Switching to hats and shades inspired by John Lee Hooker, they combined classic Chicago Blues with Stax-Volt R&B creating a suond all their own. heir first album, Briefcase Full Of Blues, went double platinum and quickly led to their first hit movie and a milestone soundtrack album. The rest is history and it's all here in a music-filled, memory-blasting account of a band that will always be on a mission from God.
Editor's NoteComedy writer Tom Davis serves as the host of this video retrospective that outlines the history of the Blues Brothers. Fronted by the vocal talents and antics of Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, this band was once a staple in the golden era of the television series SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. Combining blues music with late sixties R&B, the group created its own unique style of musical and comedic performance. THE BEST OF THE BLUES BROTHERS is a tribute to that style. "I'm a King Bee," "Soul Man," "Jailhouse Rock," "Rubber Biscuit," and "Groove Me" are just some of the songs included.
