This evening I was trying to record a cassette tape of John Mellencamp's more classic songs, such as his hit songs from 1978-88...I finished it off with "Man With No Expression" and smiled inside thin king about life...because I do relate to the "lack of emotion"...if this is actually believable, I have not cried since probably the midnineties...
but I laughed for about an hour last month. I'm very very serious...lol
and confidential to Aerosmith fans...I do
"...take out the trash...". And frankly, as a person involved in the throes of the system, that's your answer. So.
But there is a redeeming thing...
I teach a warmup exercise class Monday through Friday in the mornings as I have mentioned prior and tonight as I recorded songs from the more classic C.D.s and ended with "Cherry Bomb", I felt like a societal success at last! Now I am using poor old Mellencamp
in a positive way! The cherry on the sundae.lol.
...The only problem is..."why was John Mellencamp laughing on the editted version of "whenever we wanted to"...in
the middle of "Get a Leg Up"? Did I do something wrong?
Well...
My avenues of expression can sometimes be lonely for me and I do appreciate replies.
But I hope to have this letter posted.  As in "The Authority Song"...."I fight authority, authority, always win..."
I have learned to respect the Community and hopefully in time, the other sites I post on will be respected as well, important, because I have a special message...probably the
best thing of all! I have a picture of John Mellencamp and his old flame "setting each other on fire" so long ago on ____ the full album "whenever we wanted to"... And even a little part of this amazing musician's real life, even one musical line, just wouldn't do him justice...because I do think he's worth "a million years...before he feels like this..."with a real friend or l.u.v...his own words cover this on "cutting heads" 2001...and what a tragedy...a "little peep" as I sit with my friend eating b.l.t.s...yass
it's all relative. we don't hafta do if we don't wanna do. So we try to "...live it up..."...especially if we're over 21. It will shine when we're all adult...b.r.t.s ie: conf.
I have an artists site on TUMBLR..."flagbarer" hooray for tomorrow...and to make it totally real, my real relationship with the Community, exhibiting my own photography, will be transferred to TUMBLR.High price for justice, but alright...
I enjoy my experiences in the Community, although 3 times it's been tenuous lmao, right?....I speak with high hopes for the future although "when a major fan wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, the ripples in the potato, etc...one chip..."and of course, as a shrink would say, "what does that mean to you?"

 I think the October date on Wikipedia is correct. I definitely had it before November 1983, because I got it for my Birthday that year, which is in October.

I have a lot of those similar stories..Especially with Scarecrow and Lonesome Jubilee. Back before the days of internet to keep up with such things. As I type this, they did it again with UH-uh. Having it released 34 years ago today....It was released in October, not November.

We discussed this with the label. The best we could find in our records was a November release, even though Wikipedia says October, our notes, and articles that we could find, reference today's date as the release, so the label went with what they had.

Does any one have anything concrete about the October release date?

Not to me either. I'm just like you; those dates are attached to my life. I knew right away that the date for Lonesome Jubliee was off because I remember that it came out before I went in the Air Force and that it kept being delayed. I believe it was supposed to be released early August (maybe late July) 1987. I kept going to the record store to pick it up (I know I could have called but...) and every week it wasn't in yet. It got to the point that I would walk in the door and the store employees would stop what they were doing and yell "It's not in yet!". They were some happy people when it finally arrived! I was too.

Lonesome Jubilee was released before I went into basic training on Sept 20, 1987. I had my walkman and all my John Mellencamp cassettes with me but all of those items were locked in a closet the day you check in. Going that long without listening to John was terrible!

Best,
Lisa in Georgia

 Good to know that it is not coming from you guys. You woudl think the record company would get it right! I know it may seem trivial to some.

I'd like that too. If you've read the book "American Fool" they describe John doing back flips on the stage along with the splits. I'd like to see some of the footage before American Fool and then after.

As A John Mellencamp fan since 1982, I know when all his records came out over the last 35 years. They are life events, and the soundtrack to my life. That being said, it looks bad when his own people get it wrong. There was a post on the official FB a few days ago that had Lonesome Jubilee coming out "On this day" in 1990.  This is way wrong- any John fan know LJ came out in August of 87- not October of 1990. Then, they just posted that Scarecrow was released "on this day" 32 years ago. They got the 32 years right, but again, Scarecrow was release in September of 1985, not November.  If the folks making these posts, aren't sure, or do not have the time to research, I would just refrain from making this kind of post. I would think it would be embarrassing, coming from the official FB.  

Thank you for noting it. That's the handiwork of John's longtime record label having bad records and access to our social media pages.
