After hearing this, I'm thinking it's time to go back and start listening to the albums tracks I've never heard from his mid 80's megahit albums. You just can't lose with this - don't waste any time, get it today.
My favorite though, hands down, is his yearning 'The End of the World,' the old Skeeter Davis tear-jerker. His straight-forward and raw approach, sans even the song's beautiful harmony vocal, is just gorgeous and heart wrenching. The cd would be worth having just for that song alone, but there's another half dozen great songs here. If you're a fan of American Roots music, and not too big on John, you'll still find very much to enjoy here. If, like me, Mellencamp is an American Music staple, you'll love it.
I was not a true Mellencamp fan by any stretch of the imagination, but this one won me over big time.
Congrats to John for staying on task and becoming such an extraordinary, talented and multifaceted musician who deftly floats between genres with authority and uniqueness!

Death Letter--originally a Son House track, is by itself, worth the cost of this album. The others who have reviewed this have done a great job so no point covering that ground. Read morePublished on May 17, 2010 by Just the Facts Ma'am
