 Are these newly recorded covers, or just a compilation of covers he has done thru the years, like Under the Boardwalk, and Wild night?
19  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: OPM Album on: August 20, 2018, 01:33:42 pm
 Good to hear!! Be interesting to see what songs and artists he covers
20  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / OPM Album on: July 11, 2018, 03:14:41 pm
 I remember reading around the release of Sad Clowns, that John was also working on a covers album, entitled OPM ( Other People's Music)- Is there any truth to this, and if so are there any updates?

 Agreed! Very distracting.
22  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / PLAIN SPOKEN FILM on: February 02, 2018, 08:47:48 am
 Did anyone watch the Plain Spoken film on Netflix? I was looking forward to it, but was disappointed a bit in the format. I found the voice over during the songs to be more of a distraction, especially when John was speaking from stage, and the voice over was going at same time. I always enjoy John's insight on life, but I would have done it differently.  Perhaps I would have interspersed the interview/voice over in between songs, over archival footage from throughout career? Thoughts?

 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.
26  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: WRONG DATES on: November 08, 2017, 10:08:54 am
 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.
27  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: WRONG DATES on: November 07, 2017, 10:59:30 am
 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.
28  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / WRONG DATES on: November 06, 2017, 09:37:59 am
 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.  
29  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / What is next? on: October 16, 2017, 08:16:21 am
 John doesn't stay idle for long- Now that the SCAH tour is over, what do people think is next for John? I am sure he will take a little break, but do you think he will launch another tour for Sad Clowns in the spring? Maybe Theatres again for this leg? Or perhaps he will begin working on another record.
30  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: What's up with Rolling Stone magazine?? No "Sad clowns and hillbillies" review? on: June 06, 2017, 08:40:10 am
  I noticed this too. I have been a Rolling Stone subscriber since 1985, and in the past few years the quality and quantity have gone down hill. The reviews used to be one of my favorite features, but I have noticed this section has gotten smaller, and the reviews offer little insight, like they used to. I feel it isn't only John, but I have also noticed some other high profile releases not get a review.  Might be attributed to today's cherry pick songs mind set, and the decline of the actual art know as the album.
