Overview

The original soundtrack to Alison Maclean's Jesus' Son, the often hallucinatory tale of a young man's tragi-comic journey from drug addiction to redemption in the '70s, features an appropriately diverse mix of songs from Floyd Cramer, Joe Tex, Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson, and the Louvin Brothers. Joe Henry and Wilco's equally trippy and rootsy contributions are especially impressive; Henry's title track blends wah-wah guitars and shimmering vibes into a delicate yet compelling theme, while Wilco's languid, poignant "She's a Jar" ranks among their best work. Tommy Roe's "Sweet Pea" adds a touch of cheerfully annoying bubblegum to the collection, which is balanced by Sgt. Barry Sadler's "The Ballad of the Green Beret"'s somewhat morbid patriotism. An expressive set of music on its own, Jesus' Son's soundtrack complements the film's strange, moving tone perfectly.
