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, and Justin Timberlake, set for release by Paramount Vantage on February 16th, 2007.
Constructing the movie’s musical scenes, Scott Bomar, the film’s music supervisor (he also scored Hustle & Flow), paired
Jackson’s voice with musicianship from players like Alvin Youngblood Hart, Kenny Brown, Big Jack Johnson, and Jason
Freeman, parlaying blues classics like the raucously vulgar “Stack-O-Lee” and, of course, “Black Snake Moan,” into sinister, 21st century laments.
While the Black Snake Moan soundtrack presents the best musical moments of the movie, as a stand-alone document, its seventeen tracks weave together a raw depiction of today’s North Mississippi scene: a little bit country, and a little bitrock’n’roll, both built on a bedrock of primitive blues.
“It’s the real deal – infectious music that’s made for dancing and drinking and having a good time,” says Bomar, leader of Memphis-based bands Impala and the Bo-Keys and musical contributor to such feature films as Confessions of A Dangerous Mind and Way of the Gun.

Just like I said this song is on it's way to # One "With A Bullet". Alvin Youngblood Hart, Kenny Brown, Big Jack Johnson, and Jason Freeman went down lower than the bottom of the ocean and are dirtier than my stinky dog Butchy. I just wish they were in my band and Samuel was wak'in up somewhere with a bump on his head.

You Are Give'in Me The Blues
Go ahead and be one of the finest actors in the freak'in world and then show up and make me eat your dust in the IAC Blues pages. If this tune ain't number one before I can blink the world ain't round.
