Product Description:

Whether or not it reaches the heights of its predecessor is the stuff of water-cooler debates. One thing is for sure, though: this album smokes! Blues fans as well as rock listeners will definitely take a liking to BLUES BROTHERS 2000. There are some fine originals and re-workings here and the tempo never slows. The musicianship throughout is excellent, but doesn't sacrifice spontaneity. This is borne out by "Born In Chicago" (with a wailin' harmonica solo), "The Blues Don't Bother Me" and "Maybe I'm Wrong." While The Blues Brothers Band provides a solid backing, there are also some funky vocals by Dr. John and Aretha Franklin. While many legends participate on this album, legends-to-be also contribute: Johnny Lang, Erykah Badu, and Blues Traveler represent the next generation. All in all, this soundtrack is a fine continuation of the Blues Brothers legacy (and some excellent party music to boot!).
