Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. New West Records is proud to present Black Snake Moan on color vinyl for the first time. A darkly modern tale of love, betrayal, sex, and salvation set in the Deep South: such is Craig Brewer’s Black Snake Moan, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, Justin Timberlake and E-40. The film is the 2nd feature by Writer-Director Craig Brewer, whose 1st film HUSTLE & FLOW won an Academy Award for Best Song as well as the 2005 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award. As Hustle & Flow depicted the underground world of Dirty South rap, Black Snake Moan, which was filmed in Memphis, Tennessee and surrounding environs, employs as a setting the contemporary North Mississippi hill country music scene, revealing it’s sound through purveyors like the North Mississippi Allstars, R.L. Burnside, and Jessie Mae Hemphill.
