Duck Dunn - the Blues Brothers...

The Blues Brothers - with Duck Dunn.  This is the back cover photo.  Duck Dunn was just mentioned in the book I am reading,  It's called The Wrecking Crew, the Inside Story of Rock and Roll's Best Kept Secret, by Kent Hartman.  The hot session players in Memphis were legendary.  They played on Stax, Volt, Hi and Royal, American Sound, and Sun record labels.  These first-call guys played with Elvis, Wilson, Otis, Booker, Isaac, and the Staples Singers.   Duck, Steve Cropper, and James Burton are my favs.   This record is call Briefcase Full of Blues, the first album by The Blues Brothers, released on November 28, 1978 by Atlantic Records. The album reached #1 on the Billboard 200 and went double platinum. Two singles were released, "Rubber Biscuit", which reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 and "Soul Man," which reached number 14.
