In an effort to make Sexton's sound more commercial, synthesizers and drum machines were added, which resulted in an inconsistent album. However, this formula worked quite well on the lead single, "Beat's So Lonely," and the song became a hit, landing at #17, while the LP hit #15. Unfortunately, none of Sexton's subsequent songs or albums did as well, leaving him as a one hit wonder.
Fortunately, Sexton remained in demand as a studio musician and collaborator with country, blues and rock artists including Bob Dylan, the Arc Angles, Lucinda Williams and Edie Brickell. He continues to write and perform to this day.
