I'm actually just about through all of the Blues Brothers 7"s that I have. At this point all that is left are a few that are kind of weird and of course the handful that I haven't tracked down yet. This one is a Blues Brothers 7" although if anything it's kind of like a split 7" with Aretha Franklin.
Aretha gets top billing with her version of "Think" from the Soundtrack of the Blues Brothers movie. Always a longtime favorite of mine, Aretha's pipes are on full display here as she careens through an incredibly energetic version of the song. It's one of the most memorable scenes in a movie that has its fair share of memorable scenes.
On the B side is the Blues Brothers version of the theme from "Rawhide." Again, from an iconic scene in the movie, the whole section from Bob's Country Bunker is one of my very favorites and I've always been partial to the song, even though it's from the soundtrack and is a slightly different and longer version than what is played in the movie. I think that I like "Rawhide" so much because it is one of the few songs out there that Elwood sings. And since he's always been my favorite Blues Brother, I've just dug this since I was a little kid.
This is definitely one of the more unique Blues Brothers 7"s I have, it has unique artwork with pictures that miraculously have not been recycled from other releases. It's even got a funny, fake newspaper clipping show review of the Bob's Country Bunker show by the Good Old Blues Brothers Boys Band from Chicago. Quality stuff.
