"This is great stuff..After the movie, I knew I needed the Soundtrack, but I has pretty much figured on that even before I saw the movie. All the tracks featuring the Blues Brothers Band are great, especially the Perry Mason Theme, and New Orleans. The CD also introduced me to Erykah Badu, who has an incredible voice. Funky Nassau is a great track, one of the best on the CD. Aretha's new Respect version is great, as expected, and Blues Traveler contributes "Maybe I'm Wrong", another outstanding track. Another short, but enjoyable little song is the Car Crash theme from the movie, "Let there be drums", by the Carl LaFong trio. As short as it is, I really enjoy that one! Allso great to have those John Goodman songs, such as Looking for a Fox and Turn on your love light. You really cant go wrong with this soundtrack, I loved it!"

"This is basically my favorite CD, I would have bought it just for the Blues Traveler song "Maybe I'm Wrong" Which is a lot longer and 10 times better then it was on the movie. But I really am happy with all the other songs on it, like Respect, John the Revaltor, Harmonica musings, Let There Be Drums, Funky Nassau, How Blue Can You Get?, Turn On Your Love Light, and New Orleans. I would recommend this CD to anyone."

"Don't let the fact that the movie is not all that great deflect you from buying the soundtrack. This is probably the best collection of blues to come out in years(at least when it is related to a movie) It has Blues Travler
"Born in Chicago
The Peter Gun Theam song(a classic)
The gospel classic "John the Revalator"
My own personal favorite "How Blue can you Get"
And the all-time classic "Louisiana"My impression-The movie may not be up to snuff, but don't let that be said of the soundtrack."
This soundtrack AND movie are no disappointment for fans

"I just finished watching the movie Blues Brothers 2000, and have the CD as well. WOW! The movie brought tears to my eyes seeing the FABULOUS Aretha back, and Wilson Pickett and gang performing to a hilarious 634-5789!! And what about Sam Moore and the Godfather?!?! The soundtrack is great and not a disappointment at all for Blues Brothers fans. Sure, it's like any "greatest hits" type thing -- many of the songs you'd love to hear aren't there, but the ones that are there are fabulous! Thank you, Dan, for bringing this to us again.I'm sure those you dedicated this effort to (Belushi, Calloway and Candy) would highly approve...and do. I could tell that the muscians themselves were having a blast, and that's certainly good enough for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love my children (5 & 8) growing up listening to this music.Jimmie Vaughn, Lou Rawls, Issac Hayes, Billy Preston, Grover Washington, Jr., Travis Tritt???? Alongside B.B. King, Bo Diddley, Dr. John, Koko Taylor, and on and on. It's too much, really toooooooo much!! Who'dve thought!BOTH video and audio cd are a MUST!!"
Excellent Rock/Soul/Blues Album!

"The Blues Brothers Show Band was assembled for comedic purposes, but they were also one of the greatest groups of blues musicians ever assembled. Throw in legends like BB King, Wilson Pickett, Lou Rawls, Koko Taylor, Dr. John and some new kids like Johnny Lang and Erykah Badu, and you can still make a mediocre movie - I enjoyed it but I'm just being honest - but you can't make anything less than a GREAT record. Some of the highlights include Blues Traveler's otherwise unavailable "Maybe I'm Wrong", the hilarious "Cheaper to Keep Her", and - my favorite - the huge ensemble rendition of "New Orleans". I've discovered that this record makes for some of the best road music around and is just a great listen for anyone interested in blues soul and R & B."
