“The Last Shade Of Blue Before Black” is the 16th release in the Blues Brother’s catalog. Although many years have passed since their Saturday Night Live debut 39 years ago, and a few founding members (most famously John Belushi) are dead, some core members are still very much alive and deliver a smokey, power house of an album. The album includes some originals along with some well chosen covers like “Baby What You Want Me To Do” originally by Jimmy Reed.
