A Meditation on John Mellencamp’s Life, Death, Love and Freedom
A few years ago, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States asked me to moderate a panel discussion at the embassy on “Rock & Roll as a Force for Freedom on Both Sides of the Iron Curtain.” The panel was to consist of the ambassador (András Simonyi), Tommy Ramone and me.

The point where Mellencamp finally grew up and produced the sort of music that he'd been hinting at for 10 years or so. Significant in many ways including the introduction of his surname that he'd been forced to change because of previous management here is the convergence of country/folk/rock'n'roll allied with Mellencamp's slant on mid-west USA. After he hit the big time with 'Jack and Diane' and flirted with the Rolling Stones influences on 'Uh-Huh' Mellencamp found his true voice here and what a voice!
There isn't a poor track on this album; indeed at least 4 tracks were released as singles in the USA and all of the songs stand out in their own right. Lyrically it introduced a more mature approach to relationships and of course reflects Mellencamp's love/hate of the American dream and his affection for Indiana and the mid-west. If you buy one album by this talented artist then this is the one. Near perfect.

I've got a number of John Cougar / Mellencamp albums, but this was the one that got me interested, and is by some distance the best. Others have really good tracks - but this is excellent from start to finish.

Highly recommended if you like rocky, american heartland stuff!

I don't think so, it is so everything that is good in America. It is easy but rough, it is skin-deep but profound at the same time. Mellencamp is unquestionably at his best on many tracks on this album but there is still that little insecurity left. It makes this maybe the most interesting Mellencamp album. If you like Lonesome Jubilee you can expect to get one more aspect to this artist with this album.

I've been buying music ever since I was a kid some 30 plus years ago and in that time I've amassed a 1000 plus collection. Some records you liked for one song at the time, bought, played a few times and then let gather dust. Others, like this, just hit you the first time you played it and you never stopped playing it. Like the previous reviewer, I bought the vinyl way back in 1985, played it to death, then bought the CD. Now it's been remastered I'll be buying it again.

This album is a classic from start to finish, with maybe a slight exception to the last track ('The Kind Of Fella I Am'), which wasn't on the original vinyl album and only added at CD stage. It's an OK song, but it seems a little out of place on this CD. The rest more than stands the test of time and it still gets played regularly now. I'd undoubtedly say it's my favourite record of all time even though John is not my favourite artist/band.

Even though he's not reached the same heights after his next album (The Lonesome Jubilee), having listened to a few bootleg live recordings from his current US/Canadian tour (late 2007/early 2008), his new album sounds very, very promising. I don't think that there's a release date yet, but I will definitely be looking out for it going by the 4 new songs in his current setlist. It's being produced by T Bone Burnett who's just produced the excellent Robert Plant/Alison Krauss 'Raising Sands' CD', so it should be good.

Finally, John, if you just happen to be reading this, how about a UK tour sometime? It's been way too long!!!

Scarecrow gave me such a kick, at the time; growing up in Continental Europe I didn't know any of Mellencamp's previous albums, just a couple of tunes. This one rocked and is louder than the previous Uh-Huh. Life in the American heartland here predominates, lyrically, whereas before it had raised its head with a handful of songs only, in fact about one per album and no more. So Scarecrow is the John Cougar Mellencamp who became truly successful: no.2 in US album charts with at least 5 singles released from it, 3 reaching the top 10. If you are interested in his career, this album is a Must.
This is a guitar and drums album. Apparently, the band practised sixties rock'n'roll classics before recording Scarecrow, that's not hard to believe. There seems to be the desire to be energetic all the way through. It does succeed in that: it's angry rock in places, with some melodrama thrown in, even the slow songs are assertive somehow. I remember thinking, "You don't want to contradict this guy." Over the years, I stopped listening to Scarecrow and its eighties rock, preferring a more subtle Mellencamp, but listening to it again, now, I can't deny that I love it, all the way through. Here, John Mellencamp doesn't come up with anything that hasn't been heard elsewhere, but it works so well, and because it has that direct, classic rock production, it hasn't aged as much as some other eighties productions that tried to be trendy at the time. It's not pretentious and in places I find it naïve, in a nice way.
My favourite track is the poetic and sentimental number `Minutes to Memories' ****, co-written with JM's collaborator George Green. The vocals are very warm and there's no attempt made to sound polished: it's like a live take.
