Two CD set featuring 35 of the duo's greatest recordings in one package. The Blues Brothers originally began as a Saturday Night Live-only performance featuring two of the shows' main players: John Belushi and Dan Akroyd. They proved to be so popular that they eventually released a handful of albums plus filmed the immortal Blues Brothers movie, only coming to an abrupt end when Belushi died in early 1982. All of the unique tracks from their albums are featured on these two CDs, pulled from The Blues Brothers Original Soundtrack, The Definitive Collection and The Best Of The Blues Brothers. Includes 'Soul Man', 'Rubber Biscuit', 'She Caught The Katy', 'Peter Gunn Theme', 'Everybody Needs Somebody' and 'Gimme Some Lovin''. Pressed on full color picture CDs: Disc One is of Jake (Belushi) and Disc Two is of Elwood (Akroyd).
This two-fer combines two classic records by the Everly Brothers, simply the greatest close harmony duo in rock history. Containing both of the duo's 1958 eponymous debut and the 1984 Rhino compilation THE FABULOUS STYLE OF THE EVERLY BROTHERS, this collection features many of the songs that sent them and their harmonic thirds to the upper reaches of the Billboard charts: "Bye Bye Love," "When Will I Be Loved," "Wake Up Little Suzie," and "All I Have to Do is Dream," among many other lesser known gems. A de facto greatest-hits album, the set is a perfect diving-off point for those interested in the many highlights of the Everlys' early years.
Award-winning singer/songwriter/harmonica player has been playing soul-powered R&B for over 40 years. His compelling career story involves stints with Santana, The Robert Cray Band and Roomful of Blues, not to mention tutoring John Belushi for his role as "Joliet" Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers. 'The Beautiful Lowdown' is Salgado's most personal record, as for the first time he wrote or co-wrote almost all the songs. He also co-produced and contributed to horn and background vocal parts. The results, from soulful Van Morrison-esque rock to slippery funk, from gritty harp-stoked blues to devastating ballads, is nothing short of spectacular…
One of the most inauspicious debuts by a major rock group, this subdued slice of country boogie might be called the missing link between Moby Grape and the later, revved-up Doobies of "Listen to the Music." Only a handful of West Coast hippies bought this record originally…
This contains straight-up reissues of two of T-Bone's Imperial albums, themselves merely collections of the original 78s. Everything on these 24 sides was recorded between 1950 and 1954 – not as trailblazing a period as the one from 1946 to 1947 on Black and White, but still prime T-Bone by any yardstick. The majority of these sides were cut in Los Angeles, with the exception of the New Orleans-recorded "I'm Still in Love With You" and the Windy City cut of "Bye Bye Baby." Loads of great T-Bone guitar and a cool West Coast sound to most everything on here make this an important addition to anyone's blues collection.
The Blues Overdrive are predecessors of a modern and updated style of blues. The receipe is a modern and reinterpreted version of the genre. The key elements are respect for tradition, but playing it with a contemporary twist. The repertoire primarily consists of original compositions and cover a wide range of musical styles from the dirty swamp tunes to blistering shuffles and raunchy boogie grooves.
