Words & Music: John Mellencamp's Greatest Hits
Released: Oct 2004
Label: Island Mercury
This two-disc collection reaches across the breadth of Mellencamp's career to gather his best moments. The singer's knack for combining the Boss, Van Morrison and the aesthetics of the decade he was most active in (the 1980s) is on full display. The strength of Mellencamp's later material will be a revelation to some.
