John Mellencamp - R.O.C.K.S. in the U.S.A.


I couldn't let you go without more Mellencamp!

Here's a silver boot from 1992, released on the Italian Living Legend label. I really like this one. The sound quality varies a bit on this one, as if it was copied from an audio cassette (it probably was!) instead of the master(s). It's still very enjoyable and it sounds as if John and the band are having a blast, too!! He's cracking jokes, laughs a lot and you can't help but get into a good mood yourself while enjoying this great boot!

There's a mistake on the cover though: Track 12 is not "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A." but "Crumblin' down" and 15 isn't "Hurts so good", but "Rumble seat"!!! I have to admit that I forgot about that when I was ripping the CD, so the MP3s are mislabelled, too. Please rename it for now, I may upload it again with the correct title one day....

This one goes out to Kyra!
