Quick cuts … guest review by my dad Don Sexton of latest albums from Shemekia Copeland, Keb’ Mo’, and John Mellencamp

I’m forever sending albums and movies via Amazon to my dad Don Sexton. Some are winners. Some aren’t. (Harry Connick, Jr.’s gospel album … I’m looking at you.) Below is a lightly edited text I received today …

Enjoyed Shemekia Copeland/Keb’ Mo’/John Mellencamp this afternoon. All three artists are excellent and have a totally different take on our society today.

Copeland [Uncivil War] has wonderful uplifting songs – she dedicates the CD to Dr. John & John Prine which should reflect the tone/vibe of the music – with “Dirty Saint” about Dr. John.

Keb’ Mo’ [Good to be…] is more a love letter kinda thing – while surveying society in a positive way.

John Mellencamp [Strictly a One-Eyed Jack] reflects a guy born in Seymour, Indiana in 1951. Very dark and angry – but with a strong message about how fecked up our lives have become.

Ranked by entertainment/fun/pleasurable listening – Shemekia Copeland #1 – Keb’ Mo’ #2 – and John Mellencamp #3 – but John deserves a listen. Thanks❤️

Thank YOU! 🙌
