1  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: What's up with Rolling Stone magazine?? No "Sad clowns and hillbillies" review? on: June 28, 2017, 12:06:02 pm
any comparision of artists is somehow stupid. they all are influenced by all and do their OWN thing in the end. dylan never was the new guthrie, as springsteen never was the new dylan, and mellencamp never was springsteen etc...everyone can listen and like what he wants, for me bruce springsteen has made great records and his live shows are unique. if i had to chose one, iīd always take john, but i am happy that a few more guys make great music.

btw, german rolling stone had a review of "Sad Clowns & Hillbillies" and gave it 3 and half stars, as they always do. and in the past issue they had a Q&A with john.

I watched the video to this show and it was fantastic! great song list and the band played top. i was wondering who of you is to be seen as the camera sweeps among the crowd.

Facebook??? i have been thinking about where all the fans are, as discussions in this forum got less in the past years.
I am not on facebook, so i stick to the forum here to get some information on whatīs happening.
it looks like i always fall behind, it must be my fault. in the 80s/90s i was a member of the Minutes to Memories fan club. black and white newsletter magazines sent out by post to my home country germany. then the internet started to rule the world, and i registered here.
but facebook never, i donīt understand this at all.
so i just hope that this forum continues to exist and I donīt need snapchat for the next album release:)

This information is great, also what you posted about "Grandview" and  "All Night Talk Radio". highly interesting and I wonder about how many songs still are lost somewhere. itīs great that these two songs have been released now.
Thanks for this inside information!

well I hope, because he will be heading to europe after the summer...
6  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: Mellencamp Newsletter: Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Out TODAY! on: April 29, 2017, 04:40:13 pm
Interesting, thanks for this info!
"All Night Talk Radio" also sounds like 90s, I am not sure. "Mobile Blue" being a cover of an old country-song from 1971, this album seems to be a collection of various interesting projects.
currently i only listen to the downloads, until the vinyl version is available here in europe. no lyrics, no info on nothing.
my favourite songs after the first listening rounds: Mobile Blue, Battle of Angels, What Kind of Man Am I.

It sounds great! again an excellent album, Johnīs creativity cannot be stopped. when listeining to the opening track "Mobile Blue", I felt like back in 1987 when "The Lonesome Jubilee" came out.
The band sounds fantastic, Carlene Carterīs contribution is worthy.
I donīt care when a song has been written or recorded. there has been speculation on when "Grandview" was recorded. I think itīs good if a song like this now is published.
maybe we can get some more details about this record and its songs here.
and I hope i can get a vinyl copy soon.

Thanks a lot for this music to all involved!

I think thatīs a great new song. fantastic violine and melody though or because so sad. what else to sing on a day like this. thanks to John for this new music!
10  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: Question about the vinyl premium package on: June 08, 2015, 11:25:03 am
this package is one of the best buys in my life. I love carrying the turntable with me and playing the records. the little speakers really deliver a good sound, of course no digital high technology, but it sounds real and natural.

the graffiti words are definitely not greek, confirmed by a friend of mine from greece.
so you may be right with Italy.

great news to hear a new Bob Seger album is out! itīs been some time...
unfortunately not yet released here in germany. i tried to get it from the us-itunes-store, but of course in our free, globalized world, that didnīt work.
I hope you all know to appreciate living in the us or canada.

15  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Plain Spoken Bundle on: October 07, 2014, 04:36:04 pm
today I received the bundle with the vinyl and record player. it took a long journey from Louisville, Kentucky to Berlin, Germany.
and itīs worth every mile and worth every minute waiting for it. my excitement about it is hard to put in words. itīs been some time since I purchased a music item bringing such joy!

first of all I want to say that the service has been top throughout the waiting period. the guys from myplaydirect.com even sent an email apologizing for the delay! what a rare incident, someone apologizing to me for being late on something. besides, I didnīt expect the bundle to arrive the next day.

the whole package is just beautiful. the vinyl record, the signed, typewriter-style lyric sheet, and the turntable.
whoever had the idea to create this bundle, all who were involved in producing it, they all did a great job.
it all seems so unique, so special, and so handmade, just like Johnīs music. it all perfectly fits together, and it really makes me proud of having one of this bundles.

the record player with Johnīs name on it, is so simple but perfect. it brings back the good old feeling how to listen to music. no download, no sound discussion, no cable salad around, nothing but putting the record on the table, start it and listening. one knob for volume, one for tone.
and...it automatically stops at the end!
with the box, you can carry the player wherever you want!
nothing against an ipod, but this is much more heart and fun.

a big thank you to everyone who worked on this bundle!
