We're so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight and we would especially like to welcome all the representatives of Illinois law enforcement community who have chosen to join us here in the Palace Hotel ballroom at this time. We do sincerely hope you'll all enjoy the show and please remember people, that no matter who you are and what you do to live, thrive and survive, there're still some things that make us all the same. You, me, them, everybody, everybody.

On the version that appeared on the 'Best of the Blues Brothers' album, Elwood starts with another intro:

We're so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight, and we would especially like to welcome all the representatives of the California Highway Patrol, who are waiting for me and Jake after the show. We sincerely hope that you all will enjoy the show, and please remember people, that no matter who you are, and what you do to live, thrive and survive, there are things that make all of us the same. You, me, my brother Jake, Wilson Picket, Solomon Burke, everybody people, everybody.
