John Cougar Mellencamp - Live USA - New York 1980


New York City, NY
The Bottom Line

The "Live USA" silver bootlegs were released about 20 years ago and sold dead cheap at record stores, mainly in Germany. Some of them were actually really good and this is one of them! As you can see, the packaging is kinda shoddy (note the misspelling of Mellencamp!!!), but for about five Euro/seven bucks you couldn't go too wrong.

Since this is my first Mellencamp post I wanna let you know that - not matter what he was calling himself at that time: Johnny Cougar, John Mellencamp, John Cougar Mellencamp etc - I'll label all posts "John Mellencamp" so you can easily find all posts using the guide on the right. I'll post more stuff from this guy really soon!

Enjoy this nice show!

  1. As a longtime avid Mellencamp fan, I want to thank you for sharing these old recordings. I just started with this one, and plan to check out all of your other Mellencamp offerings as well. Quite fascinating hearing him from so long ago. His voice sounds rather worn out on this recording, but I still love it.

  2. Hey, you're VERY welcome! I hope you'll enjoy the other Mellencamp stuff as well!

    Thanks for your comment, feel free to let us know what you think of the other boots! :)
