The Sheriffs of Nottingham: Have Mercy Review

Have Mercy is the second album from the Memphis band, The Sheriffs of Nottingham. To say that this album is amazing would be an understatement. Justin Jamerson plays rhythm guitar and sings, Kevin Lipe plays lead guitar, Curry Smith plays bass, and Kyle Fagala plays drums. The band is tight and it is obvious that they work well together.

Kicking off the album with the song “Two Parts Love, One Part Sin,” the gritty guitar and heartfelt voice create a wonderful blend of blues, rock, and soul. The band shifts gears with a rock ballad called “High Noon.” The album ends with a slow blues called “If I’m Gone.” The guitar in this seven-minute tune is outstanding.

This is album is a must hear. It is certainly refreshing to hear an album full of songs that grab the listener. The Sheriffs of Nottingham have a very promising future ahead.
