John Mellencamp - My Father's Place, Roslyn, NY, August 23rd 1979


A new month and here's even more Mellencamp for you... Some of you may already know this boot, it ciruclated quite a lot for a while. If you don't have it, get it now!

The sound quality has suffered a little throughout the years, sounds like a 2nd generation tape or something like that. In other words, the sound is not crystal clear, but still absolutely enjoyable. Definitely not a reason not to get this one! The performance is good and John seems to be in a good mood, too!

The pic above came with the boot (and was obviously chosen because the club this was recorded at is called "My father's place"), but I should point out that Harry (actually Harry Perry) Mellencamp was of course not John's father but his granddad. They had a very close relationship, he was the guy John turned to whenever he needed advice or someone to talk to until Harry died of lung cancer in 1983. This sad incident completely changed his father from being a dictator to a really nice guy, John recalled in an interview...
