Awesome Collection from John !!

This is a fantastic addition to any Mellencamp fan's collection even if you have all the song's on other cd's . I have been a huge fan of Mellencamp's for many years and I had to add this to my collection . When I first listened to this collection , I was so happy to hear all the accoustic tunes done by John on his own . ....Sugar Mary has got to be one of the best songs played on the 3rd cd in this collection with only John and his accoustic guitar . This is how that song was written and it is how it should be played . This is as good as it get's Mellencamp fans !!!!! .......the book is full of stories , on how , and why all the song's were written . I am waiting for John to come out with a cd of only he and his accoustic guitar playing all of his top songs and ones that haven't made the tracks ....yet ...CHEERS to ya John !!!!.....job weel done !!!
