Summary
  • The entire album was recorded with Mellencamp and his band all playing live in one room using a 55-year-old Ampex tape recorder and just one vintage microphone. The songs on this album reflect classic American musical traditions including blues, folk, gospel, rockabilly, and country, while addressing such themes as the need for hope, the nature of relationships, and narratives that recount extraordinary occurrences in everyday life
  • "...arguably the singer-songwriter's best LP since his Eighties heyday...Mellencamp has never sounded looser or easier to record."--Rolling Stone
  • "Grade of A-...Compelling and heartfelt..."--Entertainment Weekly
  • "3 1/2 out of 4...History in the making."--USA Today
