1  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask / Re: Grandview/NPR Review on: June 13, 2017, 09:55:35 pm
I can't wait to hear Grandview in St. Augustine Florida in two weeks. I'm probably one of very few people who has been waiting for this song to be released for 20 years. When I got the new CD and saw it on the songs list my jaw dropped, since I was losing hope that it would ever surface.

The story- A friend of mine knew I was a huge Mellencamp fan and handed me an unlabeled cassette tape one day with five songs on it and told me to listen. On it was- When Jesus Left Birmingham, The Breakout, Grandview, Sweet Evening Breeze & Human Wheels. All of them have been released except Grandview and I have been sort of protecting it and only letting a few of my friends listen to it through the years. My favorite song all along was the quirky little trailer park song, Grandview. It is of course really raw, but a great version that I actually like better than the album, but of course I am used to it. The Breakout is actually a very different version as well from the album version. I would love to share it, now that is has been released, but I'm not sure I can since it is a bootleg and don't want a record company lawyer calling me! So I guess if a moderator reads this let me know if I can share, or if Mr. Mellencamp wants to hear it I will meet him at the concert and play it for him. LOL!

I hope it is in the set list when I go in two weeks!!!
