    Briefcase Full of Blues is the debut album by The Blues Brothers, released on November 28, 1978, by Atlantic Records. It was recorded live on September 9, 1978, at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, when the band opened for comedian Steve Martin. The album consists of covers of blues and soul songs from the 1950s to 1970s.

    The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 and went double platinum; according to Blues Brothers member Dan Aykroyd, the album has sold 3.5 million copies in all. It is among the highest-selling blues albums of all time.

    Three singles were released from the album: "Rubber Biscuit", which reached number 37 on the Billboard Hot 100, "Soul Man", which reached number 14, and "Hey Bartender", which did not chart.

    The album is dedicated to Curtis Salgado, the inspiration behind John Belushi's creation of the Blues Brothers characters.
