 I am not disappointed in the collection. Iím disappointed in the way it was promoted as a new album. It is a new release, and any time there is a new Mellencamp release itís cause for celebration. I just just think it should be called what it is: a compilation of Johns covers, with one new recording. I do not think it should be called ďthe 24th studio albumĒ. I mean two of the tracks are from trouble no more, one of his great studio albums.

So it was made official today that this was old material, most of which available on other albums. Why is this being touted as a studio album? Press releases are calling it Johnís 24th studio album- this is a compilation album, like words and music and the best that I could do-not a new studio record. Is it intended to bamboozle fans into thinking itís a new album? Iíll admit I am a tad disappointed and I know a lot of die hard s will be too.

 Let's hope so!! No one wants rehashed stuff! At least the greatest hits records had new songs to entice!  All These tracks are all redially available on other albums and compilations.

 This is the tracklist on Amazon Italy. Sure hope it is bogus, because it is disappointing, after expecting a new studio album. All of these are on other albums, or compilations. Plus if this is the route, why leave out Wild Night, Under the Boardwalk, Like a rolling Stone, Let it all Hang out, Baby Please Don't go..Hope we get official word soon, and it is a new album, not this.


1. To The River- available on Human Wheels
  2. Gambling Bar Room Blues- Jimmie Rodgers tribute
  3. Teardrops Will Fall- Trouble No More
  4. In My Time Of Dying- Rough Harvest
  5. Mobile Blue- Sad Clowns
  6. Eyes On The Prize
  7. Dark As A Dungeon
  8. Stones In My Passway- Trouble no More
  9. Wreck Of The Old 97
  10. I Don't Know Why I Love You- Stevie Wonder Tribute

 Still not official word on this project! I did read something about this just being a covers compilation of already released stuff, and not a new studio effort.  If itís not a studio record, Iíd rather have a vault recording  over a compilation. Hopefully it was a bogus report.

Still no official word on this. Initial reports made this sound like a new studio effort, and a proper follow up to Sad Clowns. I saw something out there today that this was nothing more thank a compilation of covers he has done over the years-like Teardrops will fall , Stones in my Passway, dark as a dungeon, in my time of dying, to the river, Mobile Blues..Etc. I really hope this is wrong, I was hoping for a new studio album, and another compilation would be disappointing. Can anyone just confirm that this is a new album, and not just a collection of old songs?

As We anxiously await more news on OPS, I thought it would be fun to guess which Artists John would cover on this record... Here are some of my guesses

Bob Dylan

Rolling Stones

Lovin Spoonful

Donovan

Johnny Cash

Woody Guthrie

James Brown
11  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: OPM Album on: September 18, 2018, 08:14:57 am
 Are these newly recorded covers, or just a compilation of covers he has done thru the years, like Under the Boardwalk, and Wild night?
12  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: OPM Album on: August 20, 2018, 01:33:42 pm
 Good to hear!! Be interesting to see what songs and artists he covers
13  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / OPM Album on: July 11, 2018, 03:14:41 pm
 I remember reading around the release of Sad Clowns, that John was also working on a covers album, entitled OPM ( Other People's Music)- Is there any truth to this, and if so are there any updates?
14  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: John Mellencamp: Plain Spoken From The Chicago Theater Available on Netflix 2/1 on: February 02, 2018, 09:22:48 am
 Agreed! Very distracting.
15  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / PLAIN SPOKEN FILM on: February 02, 2018, 08:47:48 am
 Did anyone watch the Plain Spoken film on Netflix? I was looking forward to it, but was disappointed a bit in the format. I found the voice over during the songs to be more of a distraction, especially when John was speaking from stage, and the voice over was going at same time. I always enjoy John's insight on life, but I would have done it differently.  Perhaps I would have interspersed the interview/voice over in between songs, over archival footage from throughout career? Thoughts?
