Wasn’t “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves” supposed to be a duet with Tina Turner, but she was busy so the Eurythmics went ahead and git Aretha Franklin instead.

Congrats for appearing in the local newspaper, MFW. www.nytimes.com...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:40pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Oh! Yeah, pretty thrilled with that newspaper article!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:43pm JakeGould:

Just reading this great interview with John Landis about “The Blues Brothers” and Aretha Franklin: “What’s important to remember about that movie is, it was John and Danny’s intention to exploit their own celebrity of the moment, and focus a spotlight on these great American artists because rhythm and blues was in eclipse. To give you an idea, MCA Records, Universal Records, refused the soundtrack album.” deadline.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/17/18 8:44pm chresti:

I was an extra in that movie
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:44pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Wow. I mean, it was clear to me as a viewer that they were showcasing favorite artists, which was amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:45pm JakeGould:

The frat boys have kinda ruined that film, but if you watch it as a movie, it’s good. Also this line explains more, “Plus, the bizarre and real fact that John and Danny and The Blues Brothers…it was a surprise to everybody but me, but when they opened for Steve Martin and recorded A Briefcase Full of Blues, that was the largest-selling rhythm and blues album of all time!”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:46pm JakeGould:

Also this, “She was lovely with me. The only thing that made me uncomfortable with Aretha was, for some mysterious reason – I think because I was the director — she insisted on calling me Mr. Landis.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/17/18 8:48pm chresti:

I only worked one day, some person was annoying me to the point of not returning the next day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:48pm JakeGould:

Won’t quote anymore, but will just say that Ahmet Ertegun of Atlantic Records sounds a bit like a putz in the interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:49pm JakeGould:

@chresti: Cool. What did you do?
  Fri. 8/17/18 8:51pm JtotheK:

Late arriving ... Gonna have to catch via archives, hi everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/17/18 8:52pm chresti:

I got to see Cab Calloway and get paid 20 bucks -
I was in the audience- we were pretending that it was Chicago in the summer
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/17/18 8:52pm chresti:

Missed James Brown
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:53pm JakeGould:

Cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/17/18 8:53pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Cool, chresti!! Thanks for the interesting info, Jake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/17/18 8:54pm chresti:

I got the job through the unemployment office in Hollywood
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/17/18 8:56pm chresti:

MFW, when you perform in the storefront, does it broadcast outside?

@Jake, thanks for link. See what you mean about Ertegan, but y'know, bussiness.

Chresti, I picked up checks at that office. Got a story for another time.

Thanks for a FINE show, Mr. Wine!
