1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: Songs that should have been on OPS on: April 12, 2019, 05:54:54 pm
Freddie's Dead would've been a great, long-awaited, and most-welcome release.
All these years, and I thought To the River was primarily a In original. You learn something new every day...

I wonder if some of this will be from the JM archive/vault, i.e. songs the band rehearsed/worked up before recording Scarecrow/Lonesome, as per numerous accounts from band members at the time.

Would be great to finally get the '93 Freddie's Dead on disc, too.

My fear is that it'll be more folksy.
5  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Complimentary words from Clive Davis on: November 02, 2017, 04:38:30 am

In the linked article, Clive Davis names JM as his one regret (regarding not signing him) and calls JM "one of the greatest of all time".

Sounds good. A blu ray would be most welcome.
7  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: Comprehensive list of all non-album JM tracks on: October 15, 2017, 10:43:24 am
Ah yes, I seem to be missing a few...thank you for the info.

I have some searching to do.

At the risk of repeating myself, oh for a rarities-focused box set.
8  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Comprehensive list of all non-album JM tracks on: October 13, 2017, 05:17:07 pm
I'm in the process of attempting to amass all of JM's non-album tracks on CD, despite having been a fan since early 1989 (when i Was 13 years old).

I know the 2005 remasters muddy the waters somewhat, as some of these ended up as bonus tracks on those discs.

So I have:

Pink Houses  (acoustic)
Pretty Ballerina
Small-town  (acoustic)
Never Too Old
Shama Lama Ding Dong
Blues from the Front Porch
Check it Out Live
Rave On (Cocktail Soundtrack)
Cold Sweat
I saw Mommy kissin' Santa Claus
Do Re Mi
Seventh Son
Jackie Brown (acoustic)
Pop Singer (extended) - this is kickass btw
Like a Rolling Stone from LJ tour
The two Dylan 30th anniversary show songs
Love and Happiness remixes
The Now More than Ever Redbeard sessions live rehearsals songs plus two radio songs with Mike W and Kenny A
Jailhouse Rock from Honeymoon in Vegas ost
Dance naked live take
Dance naked remix
Brothers live
Check it Out from '94 show
Baby Won't You Please Don't Go
Crumblin' Down live '96? (From.Just Another Day cd maxi single)
Gambling Bar Room Blues
4 extra songs on Freedom's Road bonus edition
Two songs on Cuttin Heads extra disc special edition

Am I missing anything?

Any info appreciated.

I wonder how many songs were recorded with Stan Lynch and Izzy Stradlin?

Still waiting on the definitive Mellencamp book to probs such questions. As an aside, Kenny's book was great! Currently enjoying the John Mellencamp: American Troubadour book, but it's not so much a biography as a critical appraisal of JM's lyrics; I found it hard to believe that the book's index doesn't even have Larry Crane or Dave Grisdom listed at all (even Kenny receives only one mention).

I hope we get a rarities box set at some point; the Rural Route box set was, in the end, underwhelming for long time JM aficionados.
10  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Video & Audio / Looking for a few shows on: September 17, 2017, 08:14:33 am
Hi there,

I'm looking to download a few shows to burn to disc for the car.

Does anybody pease have:

Shoreline Amphitheatre 1988
Saratoga 1992
Carnegie Hall 1991

And/or any other outstanding shows you think would be a great listen? Recent shows welcome as well, as I have absolutely nothing from recent years.

I have the usual suspects - 4th July 1992, Dallas '88, Belmont Mall '87, live rehearsals '91, etc and the 82/84 radio radio broadcasts on bootleg CD already.

Any help appreciated.

Great album. I listened after work on Friday on Spotify then grabbed the CD here at HMV in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday afternoon.

Glad to say, I've played absolutely nothing else since.
12  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: Grandview and All Night Talk Radio on: May 01, 2017, 09:17:42 am
Yep, interesting stuff. I was intrigued by Aronoff, Myers, Stradlin and Lynch's inclusion on the album's back cover (kinda vague) credits.

Just shows that JM - who's notoriously reluctant to look back or talk outtakes/anniversary packages of classic much-loved albums - must have a LOT of cool stuff in the Belmont Mall vault. Hopefully we get a fair-sized chunk of it someday (oh, the missed opportunity that was the Rural Route box...only Colored Lights and the alternate LUV really stand out for me of the 11 or so tracks us Mellencamp diehards didn't already have.)

Anyway, what a great album this new one is. His best since...oh, I dunno...Human Wheels? Trouble no More?

They're just miming/lip-syncing to the studio record  Shocked

Thanks, my man.

Looking forward to the album here.
15  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Tracklist for the new record? on: March 12, 2017, 08:15:33 am
Hello Everyone,

Does anybody know the track list for the new album? I can't seem to find one anywhere .

I'm just interested in the song titles. Info on musicians, producer, etc would also be interesting and would whet the appetite for the new release, too...
