We’ve been following closely the story of the West Memphis Three — Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin — the subject of the HBO documentaries Paradise Lost 1-3, the West of Memphis documentary produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, and the upcoming feature film Devil’s Knot starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth.
If you’re not familiar with the story, Damien, Jessie and Jason were accused of killing three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. They spent 18 years in prison (with Damien sentenced to death) and were released in 2010 after taking the Alford plea. All signs point to an investigation and prosecution that was ridiculously botched. It really makes you fear for our justice system.
Over the years, movie stars and musicians have come together to help the wrongly-accused trio, and the latest is the soundtrack from West of Memphis, which features music by Eddie Vedder, Johnny Depp, Natalie Maines of The Dixie Chicks, and Henry Rollins.
Check out the track list below for West of Memphis: Voices For Justice. It’ll be released on Jan. 13, 2013; you can pre-order it on Amazon. Your purchase of the album will directly benefit the West Memphis Three.
