Best of the Blues Brothers is the fourth and final Blues Brothers album released before John Belushi's death in 1982. It is a compilation album released by Atlantic Records on November 30, 1981. Along with tracks from the first three albums, Briefcase Full of Blues, The Blues Brothers: Music from the Soundtrack and Made in America, it includes unreleased live versions of "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", "Rubber Biscuit", and "Expressway to Your Heart".

A special feature on The Best of John Belushi DVD shows Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi promoting the album on The Today Show. In that segment, they lament the fact that Tom Malone was accidentally left off the credits of the album.
