The Blues Brothers - Collection Medley 7" (Spain)


WEA (1992)

I'll be the first to admit, I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel with Blues Brothers 7"s at this point.  We're left with the weird and the pointless now.  I would say this 7" neatly fits into both of those categories as it is kind of weird and it is definitely pointless.

I imagine this is a promotional release, though for the life of me I can't figure out what they were trying to accomplish with this promotion.  This 7" has the same song on both sides and that song is a four and a half minute medley of four different Blues Brothers songs mushed together.  There's about thirty to forty-five seconds of "Do You Love Me," "Going Back to Miami," "Everybody Needs Somebody" and "Jailhouse Rock" blended together in a really bizarre fashion.  They use the crowd noise as cover for their cuts from song to song and really, it's just the freaking weirdest thing.

I don't know where this would ever be useful or where it would be played or why anyone would ever need it.  Then again, on top of all of that, I did buy it so maybe I'm the real asshole in this scenario.  Oh, and there's a second one of these out there, but we'll talk about that in two weeks.
