Pressing Notes

The CLV edition of The Blues Brothers replaced CAV version the following year. The title spanned 3 Extended Play sides and was pressed in Japan. With this edition, all the chapter stops are listed correctly. The transfer, both audio and video, is the same exact transfer used for the CAV edition. However, the side breaks are placed at more intelligent locations in the film.
