The Blues Brothers

Kind of amazing that an album by a couple of comedians makes my Top 100 list, but it’s no joke. This is some of the coolest, most entertaining music a 12-year-old boy ever heard—and it was the Blues! It blew my mind, and given the supporting musicians, there’s no wonder. It deserves a place in rock history for lots of reasons and one is because of how much fun it is to experience. I was never much of a dancer, but you can’t NOT move to several of these tracks. Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Steve “The Colonel” Cropper, bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn, Tom “Bones” Malone on sax, Lou “Blue Lou” Marini on tenor sax, Jake and Elwood Blues, et al… A fake band? I think not!
