Other People's Stuff
We’ve known all along that John Mellencamp is no poor man’s Bruce Springsteen, as haters have claimed for years.
You need only take one look at the discography of this musician from Indiana to see it’s a treasure chest of musical gems. The songwriter tells the story of ordinary people in a stylish way, skilfully juggling rock, country, blues and folk and revamping the great classics. Mellencamp brings together some of these covers in his 24th album, Other People’s Stuff, with masterpieces taken from the Great American Songbook, including Gambling Bar Room Blues (Jimmie Rodgers), Mobile Blue (Mickey Newbury), Dark As A Dungeon (Merle Travis) and his version of Stones in My Passway by Robert Johnson which is feisty enough to wake him up in his grave.
