Professional Reviews
Spin (p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Jessie Mae Hemphill's 'Standing In My Doorway Crying' simply breaks your heart."

Living Blues (p.37) - "[Jackson sings] in craggy low-tenor tones that ooze sincerity. The high point of the disc is Jackson's assertive recitation of 'Stack-O-Lee'..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "BLACK SNAKE MOAN could be the record that does for the blues what the OH BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? collection did for bluegrass."
