Sam & Dave were renowned for their exciting stage performance. In the late 1970's Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi would be very much inspired by that stage performance when they did their The Blues Brothers act. Sam & Dave disbanded in 1971, but reunited shortly several times during the 1970's and 1980's. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.TitleCatalog NumberYearIn Your Collection, Wantlist, Or ...S712, S 712, 712Double Dynamite (Album) 33 versionsStax, Stax, StaxSD 708Hold On, I'm Comin' (Album) 40 versionsStax, StaxAL-32,742Soul Men (Album) 44 versionsStax, Stax, StaxSD 8205I Thank You (Album) 25 versions
