1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Songs that should have been on OPS on: January 04, 2019, 08:46:42 am
 I was hoping OPS was a brand new album, but being that it was more less a covers compilation here are some tracks I wish they included. It is a relatively short album.

Under the Boardwalk
Like a rolling stone
Rave On
Do Rae Me
Baby Please Don't Go
Wild Night
This land is Your Land

How about you? What did I miss that you think should have been included?

 Can anyone at shine any light on these differences? Specifically why the duet version seems to only be on the cd?

Update! I just listened to Teardrops on Apple Music, and it is the original Trouble no more version as well. It appears the duet version is exclusive to the CD. Strange!

The only difference I can speak of is the difference between the viynl and the cd! That difference being the two versions of Teardrops will fall. Odd that there is thy difference - you would think the vinyl would just be a pressing of whatís on cd. That being said, the vinyl sounds great!

Yeah! I really donít get why the vinyl wouldnít be the cd version just pressed on vinyl. Would love to hear the decision as to why the difference. Other than that I will say I am very happy with the vinyl

Iíve had the cd for OPS since it was released. I was glad to receive the vinyl version today! I have a question regarding the version of Teardrops will fall. On the cd, itís a different version from the one in trouble no more. John shares verses with a female vocalist (not sure who) was odd that the Viynl omits this version, and includes the original trouble no more version. Can anyone shed some light on this?
7  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / The Well Runneth dry? on: December 09, 2018, 12:01:50 am
I will always welcome any Mellencamp release with open arms. I do need to ask if fellow fans feel that the creative well may have run dry for JM?  Sad clowns was far from a new record , most of it pieced together from
Old material and covers. Other peopleís stuff is nothing more than a compilation of covers marketed as a new record.  Just seems as we are near the end of the creative peak. That said, Iíve been a fan for 36 years

 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.
9  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Other Peopleís Stuff on: November 02, 2018, 09:24:01 am
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.
11  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Album info, single and preorder on: October 23, 2018, 03:52:44 pm
 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.
13  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Album info, single and preorder on: October 22, 2018, 11:18:09 am
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?
14  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Album info, single and preorder on: October 18, 2018, 07:54:38 am
 Looks like the release date is now Dec7th
15  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Album info, single and preorder on: October 17, 2018, 02:14:47 pm
 It's getting ridiculous!!.
