I've always found The Blues Brothers a bit over-rated (& why weren't they called The Soul Brothers?!), love The Commitments though!

Strange that 'Keep On Rockin'' has never been released officially on video or DVD, at least in it's original form.

Yes, admittedly "The Blues Brothers" hasn't stood the test of time too well, though it's still of some interest if only for Steve Cropper's chops (and that beard!) and Duck Dunn. (I'm still aghast that Cropper hasn't been involved in JLL's recent recording career - a follow up to Jack Daniels is long overdue!)

Mention of "Keeps on Rockin'" reminded me that on the first (and only!) occasion I saw it, at some old flea pit on Oxford Road in Manchester, the 'B' movie (if I can call it that) was an interesting film about delta blues called "Blues Like Showers of Rain" which, I'm delighted to now discover, is available to view on 'youtube'...and I'm watching it now! (Another recommendation!)

The BB is funny. Because most people know the movie but very few know that the BB was a band before and had in their contract that they also have to make a movie. I think they released two LPs before the movie.

first there was dorothy and then came jane, look out myra you´re looking insane, c´mon jaren you´re struttin´ the stuff, i think i´ll take pumpkin cause i can´t get enough

One of my favourites is missing in the list: "Blue Suede Shoes" from 1979 with Bill Haley and the Comets, Freddie Fingers Lee etc. It's about a teddy boy weekender in the UK.
