Blues for a Saturday Night

Tonight's selection: Shotgun Blues, by the Blues Brothers Band, featuring Dan Akroyd and the late John Belushi. The Blues Brothers 1978 album Briefcase Full of Blues was the very first blues album I ever bought, and I credit it (and the 1980 Blues Brothers movie soundtrack) with sparking my lifelong interest in blues music.
