A Meditation on John Mellencamp’s Life, Death, Love and Freedom
A few years ago, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States asked me to moderate a panel discussion at the embassy on “Rock & Roll as a Force for Freedom on Both Sides of the Iron Curtain.” The panel was to consist of the ambassador (András Simonyi), Tommy Ramone and me.

Editorial Reviews

Released in June 2003, John Mellencamp's Trouble No More was received with universal critical acclaim and a No. 1 debut on Billboard's Blues chart. Featuring Mellencamp and his band's spirited take on 11 American folk and blues classics, including Robert Johnson's 'Stones In My Passway,' Son House's 'Death Letter,' Woody Guthrie's 'Johnny Hart,' Willie Dixon's 'Down In The Bottom,' Lucinda Williams' 'Lafayette,' and several others, the album was recorded and mixed in just 17 days, capturing the sessions' bounding energy.

On July 31, 2003, John Mellencamp performed the complete album for a rapt, sold-out audience at New York's Town Hall. For the concert, Mellencamp was joined by the same musicians who recorded the studio album with him: Mike Wanchic (guitars), Andy York (guitars), Miriam Sturm (violin), Dane Clark (drums), John Gunnell (bass) and Michael Ramos (keyboards). They also performed stripped-down versions of Mellencamp's 'Small Town,' 'Paper In Fire' and Pink Houses,' as well as Bob Dylan's 'Highway 61 Revisited' for the intimate audience of 1,500 people, which included members of Woody Guthrie's family.

The CD and digital audio packages both feature the complete 15-song concert, while the vinyl LP highlights 10 performances from the show. All three configurations include a new liner notes essay by Bob Merlis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great live performance from the archives July 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoyed the Trouble No More studio album. Mellencamp's covers of blues, folk, Cajun, jazz and country songs is a wonderful testament to the power of American music.

In 2003, he performed the entire album at New York's Town Hall, plus a few of his own songs with new arrangements, and a blistering Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited that fit. This has sat in the vaults since, and thanks to a new arrangement with Universal we get to hear it.

The band is on fire, with Andy York's great slide guitar driving the songs. To Washington gets a country hoedown treatment compared to the simple acoustic guitar accompaniment on the studio album. The three Mellencamp originals, all well known to even the casual fan, get new "rootsy" arrangements. Small Town is completely redone as a blues song! The rest of the songs from Trouble No More adhere pretty closely to the studio arrangements with little variation.

If you passed on the studio version because "it has no Johnny Cougar songs," I would encourage you pick this one up. The performance is great, especially if you are a fan of roots rock or Americana, or even a fan of Mellencamp in general. For collectors its a must.

According to Universal, this is the first of what could be a series of new releases from Mellencamp's catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Bad It Took So Long! July 10, 2014
By MPQ
Format:Audio CD
What a great CD! Working with a great band and great songs, this is one that Mellencamp should be very proud of. A nice addition are the few Mellencamp classics at the end done in a different style. He has always been great in concert, but this particular, different show really shines from the beginning to the end. Hope we don't have to wait another 11 years for another great live CD from Mellencamp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bet You Can't Listen Just Once August 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am by no means a John Mellencamp fan but I stumbled across this album and the description was intriguing. This is now my favorite set of tunes. The album features great live performances of blues, country, and folk tunes and proves to me the power of "roots" music. Mellencamp's voice suits the material, as does the band. One of my tests for musical quality is whether it stands up to repeated listening - this album passes that test with flying colors.

I agree with the other viewers here, this is a fantastic album from a fantastic era for Mellencamp. A must for his alternative take on his hits, and for his better approach to newer stuff as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Live concert CD of John Mellencamp August 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Best Live concert CD of John Mellencamp, you can feel the energy, the interaction and the creative different
versions of "Smalltown" and "Pink Houses.. the "Trouble No More " Cd album set is fabulous and the tweak John does on Bob Dylan's "Highway 62 Revisited" is fine considering it was 2003..Hope his upcoming tour and Studio CD are as good as this ..Highly Recommend it for ALL Mellencamp fans, a Must Have..
