Blues Brothers and Friends: Live from Chicago's House of Blues is the eleventh album and fourth live album by The Blues Brothers in 1997. It was recorded at the opening of the House of Blues in Chicago and is the first recording to feature Zee Blues. It is also the first album to feature original keyboardist Paul Shaffer since their earlier live recording Made in America in 1980.

Alligator Records has been a cornerstone of the blues world for over four decades. The stories about the artists and sessions that have paved the way for so many others are a pleasure to read. His Alligator Records is a soundtrack to modern blues, from Hound Dog Taylor in 1970 on through Son Seals and Albert Collins and to today’s JJ Grey & Mofro. There are great stories here. The book is a wealth of blues history that draws both from Iglauer’s encyclopedic knowledge of blues along with his vivid, personal experiences with legendary artists.

The Chicago blues is a form of blues music indigenous to Chicago, Illinois. Chicago blues is an electric blues style of urban blues.

The roots of the blues in Chicago are deep and unbroken-for evidence see Alligator Records' 40th-anniversary celebration on the Petrillo stage Sunday, or Saturday afternoon's multigenerational tribute to pianist Pinetop Perkins, a stalwart in Muddy Waters's band who died at 97 this past March. Thinking outside the park. Chicago's many blues clubs will be running full-tilt all weekend, and a few venues that don't usually focus on the blues-notably SPACE in Evanston-will do so for the occasion. Many festival artists will play shows around the city as well. There are too many shows piggybacking on the fest to list them all here, but a few special events deserve mention.

Since it's Chicago blues, Johnny Shines plays electric here, and he blows the doors off with his powerful and impassioned vocals. I am convinced that Shines, unlike any musician I can name, is at least as great acoustically as he is amped up. The great Big Walter "Shakey" Horton lends superb harp to Shines', and Johnny Young's sets, and Charlie-billed then as Memphis Charlie-plays a really nice harp duet with Big Walter. Also have the original three records from their first release. Arguably the finest set of Chicago blues of the period ever made. Chess and Delmarva releases of the time and later are also very good, but none have the energy and virtuoso diversity of this set.
