I grew up listening to the cassette release of this album, and it was -- and still is -- one of my favorite albums of all time.
Paul Wiele
If you like to sing along (or if you have kids who like to sing along), it makes the album even more fun.

Airing from 1991-1996 on PBS, WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SANDIEGO? was one of the most popular kids game shows of all time. The show had some great actors as part of its cast (Lynne Thigpen) and didn't dumb down to kids, it built on their knowledge of geography and made them feel smarter instead of silly. The show also boosted it's own acapella singing group, Rockapella. The group sung the show's famous theme song and during the five years WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SANDIEGO? was on the air, Rockapella sang countless other tunes, some that were there own original material, others that were not. This album is the "official" album of the WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SANDIEGO? tv show.

Half of the songs on the album are songs sung by Rockapella, but there are a few exceptions. Tito Puente has a tune to sing, as do the 3 Brave Woodsmen, Brian Dewan & Eileen Ivers, and Urban Blight. Also, Rockapella sings one tune on the album with another famous acapella group, The Persuasions. My favorite songs on the album are:

"Capital" (Rockapella)

"Everything to Me" (Rockapella)

"My Home" (The Persuasions & Rockapella)

"Indiana" (Rockapella)

"Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" (Rockapella)

These songs are fun, entertaining, and educational. They don't make many kids albums like this anymore.

I watched the show, "Where in the Word Is Carmen Sandiego?" on PBS when I was in college. My buddies and I got together every afternoon and enjoyed the humor as well as the trivia, but we LOVED Rockapella! I was so happy to receive the cassette tape as a gift, which I played for years, even when I became an English teacher for 8th and 9th graders. They thought it was hilarious that I knew all of the words to all of the songs.

The second song on the album includes a line that is now particularly important in an historical sense. In, "Everything To Me", they sing, "I could walk a high wire 'tween the World Trade Towers!" Our kids today might not even know how significant that line is. That line, alone, adds to the value of the CD.

The CD is fun and full of information that kids (and adults) can learn regarding geography and appreciating different cultures. I am so sorry that it is not longer 'in print', because I would want every child to own a copy of it!

For many a moon, Rockapella was probably best known for being the singing group on the TV show "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" The band was funny and sounded great on the show, and this album was icing on the cake.
Given its priciness, it obviously won't be for everyone. It is a shame that it is out of print as the material really is terrific. "CAPITAL", "Let's Get Away From It All", and the title track are noteworthy, but I'd say that it is very strong through all of the songs. If you like to sing along (or if you have kids who like to sing along), it makes the album even more fun.

I love this album. It's a fun mix of different styles that just makes you feel good. If you enjoyed watching Rockapella on the TV show, this is a good way to get a taste of their other music. I personally liked "Capital" and "Indiana." Of course, you can't forget the contributions of the other artists, a real gem of which is "The Violin," a very strange, galic-sounding story song. And there's the song that everybody buys the album for in the first place, "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" (the full version). Highly recomended.

Back in the 90's when this TV show was really popular, my daughter and I listened to the cassette tape of this album until we literally wore it out. It was great to revisit it and hear the songs again. I LOVE Rockapella, and the other groups on the CD are good, as well. I was disappointed that the ending that was on the tape was missing from the song, "Capital." They forgot Pierre, South Dakota, in the list of their capital cities, and the tape had a whole different ending, with the mayor of Pierre making a speech, martial music in the background. It was fun!

This has become my favorite CD. The songs just exude happiness and beautiful harmonies. Among the very best are Indiana, Let's Get Away from it All, and My Home, a magnificent song with the Temptations. I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoyed their all too brief appearences on Carmen Sandiago.

The song "My Home", performed by Rockapella and The Persuasions, is probably one of the most beautiful acapella songs I've ever heard. I recommend getting this album, if only for that song.

One of my favorite guilty pleasure CDs, I have enjoyed it since my kids were little. It was out of print, so I was glad to find it at a reasonable price.

Was there another version?
Not sure about a different version of the CS soundtrack. Zombie Jamboree is on a few of their other CDs though, "In Concert," "Primer," and "Live In Japan."

Rockapella's "Indian" from the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? CD
Well, according to the liner notes on the Carmen Sandiego CD, it was written by Sean Altman. There's more info available at Rockapella's website -- I'd follow that avenue to pursue it further. Good luck!
