By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Dec. 2001
Format: Audio CD
Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie pour their hearts out about their garishly-coloured lives in a mixture of classic covers and songs written especially for them. Bart delivers the dance-raps of Do The Bartman and Deep Deep Trouble and also duets with Buster Pointdexter on Chuck Berry's School Days with Joe Walsh's guitar solos. Homer, full of woe and trouble, croons the classic blues Born Under A Bad Sign and Marge covers Springfield Soul Stew to the melody of Memphis Soul Stew. Together the two of them sing the romantic duet I Love To See You Smile with Dr John on piano and Roger McGuin on banjo. Blueshound Lisa shines on the Billie Holiday standard God Bless The Child and the original Moanin' Lisa Blues. This family is hot!

This is definately a fantastic album. The tracks on it range from Bart and Jazzy Jeff rapping, to Homer and Marge Singing a catchy 1940's tune. It is really well worth owning and at the price, a steal.
A must have for any Simpsons fan.

If you like the TV show, buy the videos and worship the never-grow-old nature of the characters, thenthsi is the album for you. In my collection of Limp Bizkit, RATM, Metallica & Deftones, it seems a TADGE out of place, but it has me in creases every time - Homer's choices of jazz names for himself will NEVER not be funny!

I have listened to these songs over and over and never get sick of them - the cartoon tradition of staying young forever works for this CD too. Deep Deep Trouble and Do The Bartman? Total classics and are a must for Simpsons and music fans everywhere!

Enjoy the soundtrack of the Simpson's as if they were on TV. Starts off with their UK Number one Hit in 1991 : Do The Bartman. I like The Simpsons album the The songs of Springfield and their Yellow Album but have forgetten the main title of it, but this album adds to my TV Soundtrack collection.

I've been a fan of "The Simpsons" for many years now, despite having come to satellite TV relatively late in life and only seeing the show for the first time as an adult. One of the things that has always helped me enjoy the show is the musical numbers. Whilst some shows have successfully done musical episodes, few have managed to weave so much good original music into such a long running show.

Admittedly, thanks to the format of the show often involving spoofs of other shows, many of the songs aren't exactly original, but either cover versions or parodies of songs. Also, thanks to the show supposedly being around a family, some of the vocals are a little ropey, as it would be unusual for a whole family to be musically talented. Outside of the Jacksons or the Osmonds, at least. But even knowing this was not enough to dissuade me from buying "The Simpsons Sing the Blues", as I figured that the amount of entertainment it would provide would outweigh the number of duff notes they would hit.

If you're a fan of "The Simpsons" and remember one or more of the original singles, this is an essential purchase, even if it does sound a little dated in parts. If you're not a fan of the show, this really is one to avoid, but the prominence of the family on the cover will more than likely give you that idea anyway. There are some fairly inoffensive tunes if you're not a fan, but for the most part decent songs are made less so by the inclusion of the cast and if the show annoys you over half an hour, this album certainly will over 40 minutes and ten tracks. But as a fan I love it and, despite any number of releases in the fifteen or so years since this came out, I think this is still the best of "The Simpsons" albums.

A very good album and very funny, good price and its had a lot of effort put in. BB King is a well missed legend and even though its sung by a cartoon family it really is something you can enjoy like you would a regular artists . I first heard it when I was a kid which was 26 years ago so the fact that it still rocks today is testament to its continuing ability to entertain generations to come

This album is fantastic - it is a wonderful fusion of two of my favourite things: the Simpsons and the blues.
This is not a rip-off designed to cash in on the fame of the Simpsons. It is a fabulous CD in its own right.
The songs are all sung by members of the Simpsons family - the lyrics are original and appropriate to the character. The music is mostly blues classics (with some original material) performed by fantastic (and famous) blues musicians. I could have done without Bart rapping but this is not a major complaint - Lisa singing the Moanin' Lisa Blues more than compensated.
It brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart.
