5.0 out of 5 stars ...and welcome to New Orleans! November 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The soundtrack to season 1 of David Simon's new series Treme captures the soul of the show and the spirit of New Orleans. If you watched the first season, you'll know that this show is just as much about the music of New Orleans as it is about the city's enduring people, who lost everything in Hurricane Katrina and came back to rebuild the city they loved.

This soundtrack is filled with songs celebrating New Orleans and its vibrant culture. It's no mistake that if you close your eyes you could imagine walking down the New Orleans streets hearing each of these songs coming out of one club after another as you pass by. That's because many of these recordings are the same live recordings seen in the show. With the exception of four tracks, all songs were recorded in 2009 and 2010, contemporary to the recording of the first season and, as I said, in many cases the exact same recordings that appear in the show's numerous live concert scenes. That also means that you don't just get standards like the Rebirth Brass Band, Kermit Ruffins, Dr. John, or Allen Toussaint...you also get the actors' performances from the show, including Steve Zahn's (Davis McAlary) campaign song "Shame Shame Shame," Lucia Micarelli (Annie) duetting with pianist Tom McDermott on Jelly Roll Morton's "New Orleans Blues," and Wendell Pierce (Antoine Batiste) taking over vocals on "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You." The music rolls through New Orleans' history and connects past generations with the present, whether it's Trombone Shorty and James Andrews recording their grandfather Jessie Hill's "Ooh Poo Pah Doo," Irma Thomas re-recording her classic "Time is on My Side" with Allen Toussaint, or Steve Earle writing and recording his new Emmy-nominated track "This City" specifically at David Simon's request.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the Rest? July 23, 2011
By JB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a great show. It's great music. That said, for a show based on music, a one disc soundtrack simply wasn't sufficient. When I listened to it, it felt incomplete, and I was pining for some of the series' most memorable songs.

"Wish Someone Would Care" was the title of an episode but the song was left out. Despite them being stars, there are really only two Sonny and Annie songs here; their macabre duet and their sarcastic rendition of "Saints" are missing. Despite three versions of "Indian Red" being included, the classic version that plays over a montage scene in the show is missing. There's no Cajun music. You could fill another disc with songs that I remember that they left out without even having to go back and rewatch the show. All in all, it could have been a two or even three-disc album.

My conclusion is that if you're a fan of the show you should obviously buy it, but let them know they should release more stuff in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of disappointing March 19, 2013
By Mary Jo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of all the fantastic songs that were played in the show, the ones they chose, in my opinion, definitely were not the best. All the upbeat, make your feet move songs weren't included.

I was delighted when I first heard this soundtrack. Everything that I love about the show Treme was on this CD. You hear the energy, history, struggle, and hope. This is definitely on my top ten list of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treme soundtrack rocks September 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great piece from the show. Opening, of course, with the theme song, the music comes from all over the first season. Steve Zahn's piece (as DJ Davis) about Shame, Shame, Shame on George W Bush is particularly well done. I really enjoyed the whole thing. If you like the show, or even just enjoy good music with some impressive variety, you should check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any better January 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great collection of actual music played on actual instruments by actual musicians. Almost all recorded live.

The antidote to the over-produced, auto-tuned, lifeless dreck on the airwaves.

If you have any interest in jazz or R&B this will be a wakeup call for your ears.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treme: Music From the HBO Original Series October 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are in to New Orleans music as I am, then you'll enjoy this CD. I've visited the Big Easy many times over the past 40+ years, and this is a snap shout of the music that is every growing and entertaining.

Some of the cuts bring Jackson Square to mind as well as the House of Blues, others bar and the street entertainers we met as we walked the streets and the French Market.

If this is your first taste or a continued drink of the music, I know you'll be thirsty for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like the series? June 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's kind of like the CD from The Wire -- worthwhile if only for "Fast Train" by Solomon Burke. However, this first season of Treme has more to it that the wonderful "Ooh Poo Pah Doo." If you're like me and never heard of John Boutte or that myriad of musicians who hail from New Orleans, this CD and those from the other three seasons will intrigue you. And Steve Earle's "This City" is worth its weight in gold. I've had it on repeat for days in a row. I come to the CD from the David Simon HBO series; but I'll bet the music is strong enough to lead listeners to the series because of the music. Buy it...and listen three or four times before you become a critic.
