I'm curious if the Universal 8 Blues Brothers digest (2 X400') included Aretha Franklin singing "Think" in the diner. It would be cool to have this on super 8... so if anyone has the digest can you please let me know? Thanks!

Sadly, no Brian ...

It does, of course, have the two numbers that the Blues Brothers do, uncut, but it largely centers on the chase sequence (taking up all but the second B.B. song), and the first part of the part 1 taking up the journey towards the concert, but no numbers, beyond the previously mentioned numbers.

Now ... THERE is a super 8 optical feature I'd die and go to heaven to find! [Smile]

By the way, speaking of Aretha ... Does anybody know if that classic 60's concert film (on super 8) of the T.A.M.I. show has Aretha in it?

I believe there is a short clip of Aretha singing in a CBS documentary called Body and Soul narrated by Ray Charles.

Unfortunately it's not on Super 8 but a lot of libraries and schools had this film in 16mm. It's usually printed on 1970s Fujifilm.
