Made in America is the third album by The Blues Brothers. The second live album by the band, it was released in December 1980 as a followup to their hit film released that year, The Blues Brothers. The album did not fare as well, commercially or critically as their previous two albums, 1978's Briefcase Full of Blues and The Blues Brothers: Music from the Soundtrack. Made in America peaked at No. 49 on the Billboard chart and the single, "Who's Making Love", just cracked the Top 40 at No. 39. It was the band's last album with lead singer "Joliet" Jake Blues (John Belushi, who died in 1982).
