AllMusic Review by

Another example of strong content in a weak package, the 5.1 audio sound quality is the best technical part of The Best of the Blues Brothers. Of course, if you're buying a DVD for the music, that's the essential factor. Visually, the product suffers from a lack of good source material, which is not unexpected given that all of the musical performances were video-recorded a decade before the advent of DVD and the boom of the home-purchase video market. Among ancillary features, there's a nominal information section on the performers, but really, it's pretty pathetic. The lack of useful dress-up features shouldn't be a deterrent, though. The primary content is great, and the music-only option allows you to enjoy the songs without the interviews.
