The Blues Brothers soundtrack was released on Atlantic Records. On the surface this doesn't seem unusual, since the Blues Brothers' Atlantic debut, Briefcase Full of Blues, was a number one album; but the movie was released by Universal, and its parent company, MCA, passed on the soundtrack. The rollicking remake of the Spencer Davis Group's "Gimme Some Lovin'" was a hit, featuring an arrangement notable for the horn section that replaces Steve Winwood's rumbling organ work.
The Blues Brothers is a 1980 American musical comedy film directed by John Landis. The film's screenplay was written by Aykroyd and Landis. It features musical numbers by rhythm and blues (R&B), soul, and blues singers James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and John Lee Hooker

The Blues Brothers journey that John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd began on Saturday Night Live grew into a multimedia phenomenon, but even with the comedy stripped away, the soundtrack to their 1980 cult-classic film still stands tall. When they’re not ceding the spotlight to R&B giants like Ray Charles ( Shake a Tail Feather ) and Aretha Franklin ( Think ), they stir blues, soul and rock ’n’ roll together with such unbridled energy, infectious enthusiasm and star-quality charisma that it’s impossible not to get caught up in the frenzy. The Blues Brothers journey that John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd began on Saturday Night Live grew into a multimedia phenomenon, but even with the comedy stripped away, the soundtrack to their 1980 cult-classic film still stands tall
James Cleveland Choir) - The Blues Brothers. Set track as current obsession.
When "The Blues Brothers" movie finally arrived in theaters in the troubled summer of 1980 both Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi had long since ankled SNL and left their TV roots far behind (or so they thought, by 1981 Belushi's movie stratospheric movie career was already on a downswing and he was exploring a return to TV, according to Bob Woodward's. biography, "Wired") and in many ways "Blues Brothers" was the culmination of the pop culture revolution SNL and the "Not Ready For Prime Time Players" had started when SNL went on the air in 1975. The soundtrack has no real weak spots and, like every soundtrack or album that has survived for over 30 years, stands up to numerous repeated listenings.

The songs on the soundtrack album are a noticeably different audio mix than in the film, with a prominent baritone saxophone in the horn line (also heard in the film during "Shake a Tailfeather," though no bari sax is present), and female backing vocals on "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", though the band had no backup singers in the film.
