Two musical adventures in one Blu-ray collection. In THE BLUES BROTHERS, Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood (Dan Ackroyd) comb the back alleys of Chicago to recruit performers for their orphanage benefit concert, a house-rockin' roster that includes Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Cab Calloway and James Brown, with cops, Nazis and country-western bands in hot pursuit. And in BLUES BROTHERS 2000, Elwood (Dan Ackroyd) tries to get the group back together with the help of a 10-year-old orphan (J. Evan Bonifant), a baritone bartender (John Goodman) and his "more or less" stepbrother (Joe Morton), with performances by Eddie Floyd, John Popper and Blues Traveler, Lonnie Brooks, Junior Wells and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Extras include theatrical and extended versions of THE BLUES BROTHERS, interviews, behind the scenes footage, featurettes about the music, theatrical trailers and a remembrance of John Belushi.
