Hey Mr. Mellencamp,... we loved the concert.  The preamble to the concert kind of set expectations and informed us to the kind of musicianship you attempt to embrace when you are creating music.  You are an artist.  The evening was something of an anthology and belief of your music,... it harkened to the importance of how we need to embrace the way things were done in the past.  From Sun records to Elvis and to Robert Johnsonís commitment to getting the sound just right,...  As listenerís we tend to take so much music for granted,... the music doesnít just  seep through your pores, you work to make it right.  More than that, you want the listener to feel it, like you do, it takes a certain commitment.  You are a pro Ė we felt your commitment to,... itís your backup musicians and their passion for the music as well.  The most memorable song of the evening?   Without a doubt Ďsave some time to dream,í... maybe not your biggest hit, but perhaps the best thing you have ever written.

Again, itís obvious you care about your audience.  What a great night.

Thanks for the memories.

Bob and Lucille Donnelly
