ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Named one of the TOP TEN BEST KIDS ALBUMS OF THE YEAR on over TWELVE different lists…This much anticipated first album from New York City’s favorite kindie rockers, THE JIMMIES, has met with international acclaim and plenty of toe tapping. They’ve hit #1 on the XM kids charts and can be heard playing all over the country at places like Lollapalloza, Musikfest and Austin City Limits.

Check out their award-winning VIDEOS at:

"Seriously Talented Musicians who could easily put their collective instrumental and songwriting prowess to use making serious "art" to impress serious grown-ups...they choose instead to entertain the “shorter set.” And anyone who might have a problem with that needs to spend some serious time with…a copy of The Jimmies’ CD…and learn to surrender themselves to the awesome power of the silly side”
-Austin City Limits Artist Discovery

“This debut album…is pure pleasure. It’s unusual to find an all original album that blends lyrics, vocals and music so well. The sophisticated lyrics will have listeners learning a bit more that they realize while having fun…Don’t miss this entertaining collection of really silly songs.”
-School Library Journal

"You may as well get Make Your Own Someday now, because eventually these songs are going to end up on some TV show somewhere. Then your kids are going to beg to you play The Jimmies over and over again in the car..."
-Stefan Shepherd, Zooglobble

“What would happen if The Go-Go's, AC/DC, Norah Jones, Toni Basil and the Muppets started a supergroup? I think you'd call it THE JIMMIES! It's high on my top-ten list, and will be on heavy rotation in my classrooms”
-Nick Deysher, Singing in The Bathtub

How FANTASTIC is this CD??
We cannot stop playing this CD~it is SO good!
My 8 year old loves it as much as my 3 year old does!(my 37 year old husband loves it too). There's not a bad song in the bunch.
I cannot recommend this CD more highly.

Upbeat, ultra poppy, and just plain fun, this collection of original songs is aimed at children, but adults are sure to get a kick out of its catchy melodies and diverse stylistic approaches as well. This five piece band shuffles genres from track to track, making each song a new adventure and allowing an easy and fun way to introduce a young one to a variety of musical forms. While "Bedhead" gives a nod to The Go-Go's or The Bangles, "Cool to Be Uncool" breaks out the guitar and rocks to a Joan Jett type riff. And that's just the beginning: The group also delves into blues, folk, reggae, country, Latin, and even polka. The players here are spot on, really representing the sounds of the different types of music accurately and articulately. The songs are well written, musically educational, and most importantly, they give the kids some credit. While the subject matter may be fun and silly, there is an underlying maturity to the musicianship and the lyrics that will certainly make children feel that they have been introduced to something new and exciting.

we LOVE it!!!
The CD has such a great variety of songs and genres. My son’s new phrase is “what’s that sounds?” My new phrase is “do the elephant” when you sneeze. I even find myself singing the songs in my head long after the stereo has been turned off.

You will never get tired of this CD
Our family LOVES this CD. I wouldn't even consider it children's music. They're just a good band. We saw them play at the film festival and they were amazing in person. They are so funny. And if you listen to the lyrics they're hilarious. Plus, after playing it a million times, we just discovered the hidden track!!
