Shemekia Copeland - Done Come Too Far - LP
1 LP - Import - on Alligator - limited crystal clear vinyl
Shemekia Copeland is a Grammy-nominated blues, soul, and Americana singer is revered worldwide for her defiant music and fire-breathing performances. "Done Come Too Far" continues Shemekia's riveting, clear-eyed testimony about our troubled world while celebrating the blessings that keep hope alive.
The new album is again produced by Will Kimbrough, and an all-star supporting cast includes slide guitar whiz Sonny Landreth, Hill Country blues great Cedric Burnside, and Hi Rhythm Section organist Charles Hodges. "Done Come Too Far" is another exhilarating Shemekia Copeland showcase, as her rousing vocals bring the heat in an infectious array of muscular rockers, stomping blues, swampy soul, and heartbreaking ballads. Intense, topical new originals make up most of the tracks and spirited versions of songs by Ray Wylie Hubbard and her father, Johnny Copeland, fit right into the mix.
