I noticed John Mellencamp's rendition
of "What if I Came Knocking?" , a Human Wheels"
song, where he sings about "his heart" going
through the changes after "just a few weeks"
and that "'s not really meant to be..."
But the real racketeer rewards on this record
goes to his exband member Pat Peterson/sp?
Her backup vocal work is so, so neat. On the video
that the Mellencamp people put out on "What if I
Came Knocking?"
..." the fact that her heart was so into it
was so clear...and it was beautiful.
But also, on that album. Funny French Shoes, To
The River, Case 795, Suzanne and the Jewels,
and When Jesus Left Birmingham, show her vocal
talents off in an unequivocal way. I try to cop off
her parts sometimes...but I am not a soprano.
Wailing is what she does on the high notes, and
there is no comparison.
This, of course, is only reflected
on her work in one album...
And now there comes a heartfelt dream to leave the band "...and he'll sing it, too!"...
Because she's all the beautiful hearts with John Mellencamp. That's just what she is..."heathen, among friends..." And that is Pat. The kind of mama you'd give your night to see.

Hey hey hey!! I totally agree- Pat is AMAZING! I love her goofy, bubbly attitude but most importantly her great voice tops it all! I especially adore her vocal part on the 3rd verse in Case 795. Very spectacular and unique voice, and John's goes so well with hers!! She also has like golden vocal chords whenever she sings Pink Houses live with John. She and all the background singers kick ass.
