“How Weed Won The West” takes its message to the music by releasing an eclectic soundtrack CD with Sunset Records for the film that is opening in theaters this month.

Award Winning Film Documentarian Kevin Booth also makes his solo music career debut as a participant on the Sunset Records film’s soundtrack featuring an all-star various artist title compilation CD, very naturally, and the filmmaker opens and closes the soundtrack CD with his songs. His electronic ballad “Baby Kush” stars as the album’s opening track with the album telling a story through to the closer “Drug War 2,” a Kevin Booth collaboration with Nick Knoc, with twelve (12) songs made up of rock, hip-hop, reggae, quirky, rap and electronic tunes on the compilation Soundtrack CD. (Kevin) Booth isn’t the only eclectic artist that makes a contribution to the soundtrack, 3 All Mighty, Travis Warren (New lead Singer for blind Melon) adds a blast of Southern down home rock n roll rock to the album with “I-40 Blues.”

More highlights on the CD are rap and hip-hop driven with topical songs, and quintessential partying tunes, from Los Marijuanos (recently signed to Sunset Urban Records) with their hit song, “Summertime,” along with Sunset Urban Recording act, Mista Latex with his “Let It Burn” song and Philadelphia native, Neele Scar with the song that also dawns the name of the film, “Weed Won The West,” are the perfect blend of raucous, melodic hip-hop / rap tunes that do tell this story and send its’ messages, on this full length Soundtrack CD. The Ronnell Sessions neo-soul rendition of “N-Day” effortlessly seeps in its Spanish influences, while at the same time, the quirky, pop artist, Norman A. Norman brings his “The Vapo Song (Vapo Vapo Vapo) song to the CD, while the roots reggae legend, I Kong (Tropical Records) adds his reggae style to the Soundtrack, with the inclusion of his popular world music song, “A Soldier Went To War.”

“The soundtrack is not only a favorite of mine,” says Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset Records, “it also tells a story just like the film would tell its story.” (Don) Lichterman goes on to say “The songs on the soundtrack are all dramatic in their own way,” and “the CD is not only fun, I also want people to be able to leave the CD on at parties without having to change it. Plus, every song sends a message related to the documentary film made by Kevin (Booth).”

All in all, the How Weed Won The West soundtrack CD is compiled very well while having songs on it, to be able to send a message related to the subject matter in the documentary film (in theatres this month). Sunset put this soundtrack together and compiled the artists on the CD in a very eclectic way. This compilation Soundtrack CD is for all music fans that like any genre and all style of music.

The American Drug War: The Last White Hope Soundtrack CD (All Genres/All Formats):

The Sunset Records Soundtrack division has compiled music, songs and an incredible DJ-RX mix of the hit song, “White Lines” (Grandmaster Flash) song, with George Bush, Jr. on vox.

“One person can't make an entire movement by themselves,” (Don) Lichterman states. “I realize that it takes more than one person to build a movement and build something bigger than one self, which is why I am grateful to the participants on the soundtrack, and I am especially grateful to Kevin (Booth) for allowing me to use my resources to do my part to spread the word.”

Kevin Booth is not only the writer, producer, director, narrator on the award winning documentary film, American Drug War: The Last White Hope, he is also a participant on the soundtrack CD with his “Drug War I,” song collaborated with Nick Knoc. From his (Kevin Booth) own ambient, electronic styled song, to other eclectic, yet edgy songs on the CD that are alternative songs, rap songs, hip/hop songs, let alone the Blind Willy Johnson classic blues track, “Dark Is The Night.” The album appropriately starts off with a song by the newest Sunset Urban recording artist, Phillip Morris rapping his; “A Dysfunctional Family Affair” which (Don) Lichterman says, “is a song that tells this entire story.” The CD continues with other recognizable tracks from the film like Da-Watchman’s distinctive, “V-Town Krack Haus” and the “Intro Secret Sauce” track by Beat Banga. If the statement made by (Don) Lichterman, (Kevin) Booth and Sunset Records on this soundtrack CD release does not say enough, the documentary film is also a “a must see” says (Don) Lichterman, “this (American Drug War: The Last White Hope) documentary film, and the 'The Corporation' are two of the most important documentary films released over the last decade and honestly, everyone needs to see them both in their life.” “Overall though,” says (Don) Lichterman, “no one needs to watch the film or listen to the CD itself in order to have a strong liberal viewpoint about the legalization of marijuana today and how private prisons work to create a criminal justice system that aims to get people in their facilities, let alone works to keep people in that system, in a very pro active way.”

The songs on the CD definitely go across many formats, they were all chosen for their lasting impacting message and even though some of the songs are not necessarily tied to the drug theme or about using marijuana, Don Lichterman (head of Sunset Records) says to “listen to songs like 'A Dysfunctional Family Affair'” by the Chicago native, Phillip Morris, “which I put first on the album for the sole reason that he raps about criminal justice system in not only a creative way, he also sends his message in a concise way.” But then (Don) Lichterman says, “most of all, these are not songs about smoking pot and partying Charlie Sheen style, this is all aimed to send out what is a very important message for people to know about how our criminal justice system works today.” The obvious anthem and theme song by hip-hop / rap artist, Phillip Morris is first track on a CD with all original compositions, except of course, for incredibly produced DJ-RX mix of the popular rap song by Grandmaster Flash, “White Lines” done with Gorge Bush Jr. on vocals (taken and spliced together from speeches (George, Jr.) Bush had as President). Songs both accompanying the title credits of the film at the beginning of it, throughout the film, and music played at the end are also featured on the soundtrack CD. Even though the CD is being worked to radio across many formats, the hope is that it will also set up the urge to want to watch the documentary film (Currently at Netflix and available in stores like Amazon, etc.). There is no real way of getting away from the context in the film; however, the soundtrack CD, let alone the subject matter in the film are memorable work and great productions.
