The Blues Brothers - Soul Man 7" (Netherlands)


Atlantic (1978)

Of all of the Soul Man 7"s I've picked up recently, I think this one might be my favorite.  It was released in the Netherlands and utilizes the band's logo as the sleeve, rather than just recycling the Briefcase Full of Blue artwork (don't worry, that art makes an appearance on the back of the sleeve).

I kind of find it fascinating that considering how big The Blues Brothers were, there's so few pictures of them used on their record sleeves.  Still, this one is bold and really stands out from the pack.  The songs are the same "Soul Man" / "Excuse Moi Mon Cherie" split as are on most of the Soul Man 7"s from this era.

It's a cool add to the collection.  I've picked up a lot of these Blues Brothers picture sleeves and I'm going to try to keep to a schedule of posting about one every other Thursday.
