Biography

As a producer, bandleader, arranger, songwriter, session musician and all-around musical eminence, Allen Toussaint impacted the New Orleans music scene of the Sixties in much the same way that Dave Bartholomew had in the Fifties. Toussaint, in fact, apprenticed under Bartholomew at sessions for such legends as Fats Domino, so it was a seamless transition when the R&B baton passed between ...

Editorial Reviews

Elektra Records and HBO have joined forces to put together a riveting collection of songs that connect TRUE BLOOD fans with the hit HBO series. The TRUE BLOOD soundtrack includes the show theme song 'Bad Things' by Jace Everett and features artists such as C.C Adcock, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Allen Toussaint, The Legendary Shack Shakers, The Watson Twins and more. The songs featured on the soundtrack were included in Season 1 of the series.

Every song is good.

We love the series, and are patiently waiting for the next season.

HBO's series True Blood is edgy, sexy, and brilliant. Each episode is chock full of fantastic, Louisiana swamp-inspired, good ole suth'n, vampire hell raisin' music. This CD is a good start, but could have been much better.

The instrumental background music is pure brilliance thanks to composer Nathan Barr. Where are his haunting melodies and theme songs for the major stars of this show: Bill, Sookie, and even Eric? His music has been grossly overlooked and he certainly deserves his own CD.

There are other wonderful songs from this series that add more flavor and spice to the show which should have been chosen. They are memorable scene enhancers or ending credit songs which would certainly help draw new viewers to the show, as well as titilate the addicted fans and numerous blog sites. Songs such as: "Red Eyes and Tears by the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club; "Half of You" by Cat Powers; "Sweet Jane" by the Cowboy Junkies; "Lullaby" by the Dixie Chicks; "That Smell" by Lynyrd Skynyrd; "Freefall" by Pitch Black; "Snake in the Grass" by Vallejo; and "Cold Ground" by Rusty Truck".

Thankfully we have HBO.com and the True Blood community for providing us die hard fans with a complete song inventory for each episode because the songs on this CD are only a half hearted attempt at re-capturing the greatness of this show.

Velouria, I went to the "True Blood" site & they list all the songs in each episode, along with in what scene each is playing. [...] As Bill & Sookie walk into Fangtasia (Episode 4), the song is "Don't Fear the Reaper", performed by Heaven 17. As someone who remembers, it was originally done by Blue Oyster Cult. Hope this helps!

The series "True Blood" has one of the best soundtracks in television. It is a shame that out of the seventy-seven odd songs used for the first season, only a meager few were included in this compilation.

Unless you're specifically looking for the background music written for this show, I recommend going to truebloodwiki:
[...]

and reviewing the entire song list for the series. Then use your favorite music service to purchase individual tracks, all of which are available for sale individually on artist CDs.

make sure you know which soundtrack you're buying...this one is music clips from scenes in the show, it's NOT the songs they play at the end of each show...

This `True Blood Soundtrack' has a great selection of tracks from, and inspired by, the TV series of the same name. Of course you get the excellent title track `Bad Things' by Jace Everett but you also get some other great songs as well. Most have a country/blues feel to them and some are softer, whilst other are low down and dirty. Examples of the former are `Two' By Ryan Adams which a is a great county ballad and of the latter `Swampblood' by The Legendary Shack Shakers, which has some amazing harmonica playing on it. There is also a good booklet which talks about some of the music on offer, as well as having photos of actors from the series. If you like the music from the TV series then this is the place to go and if you are after a good country/blue compilation then this is worth considering for that as well.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

This CD starts off with the theme song from the show but after that it goes south pretty quick. I was actually hoping for the music that is played at the end of every show and not one of those songs were on this CD. Disappointed but then again it has grown on me a bit but not tremendously!

was dissapointed in the selection of the tunes that are on this CD. remember several great songs from the first season of the show -like "Snake in the Grass-that did not make it onto this CD. other than the title track, which is great, the rest of the music is just fair.
