John Mellencamp presents a new in-concert recording Trouble No More Live at Town Hall via Mercury, one of two projects the Hoosier singer/songwriter is prepping for 2014.
John Mellencamp's trouble No More, released in 2003, received universal critical acclaim and a No. 1 debut on Billboard's Blues chart. Featuring Mellencamp and his band's spirited take on 11 American folk and blues classics, including Robert Johnson's "Stones In My Passway", Son House's "Death Letter", and several others, the album was recorded and mixed in just 17 days, capturing the sessions' bounding energy. A month after the release, Mellencamp performed this acclaimed studio album, Trouble No More, and four additional song, including stripped-down versions of Mellencamp's "Small Town", "Paper In Fire", and "Pink Houses" as well as Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" for a sold-out audience at New York's Town Hall.
The newly mixed and mastered concert recording makes its release on 180g Vinyl LP! The LP highlights 10 performances from the show and includes a new essay by Bob Merlis.
