John Mellencamp Scarecrow on Limited Edition 180g Import LP w/ Bonus Track

1985's Scarecrow found John Mellencamp truly coming into his own in terms of his songwriting and the definitive version of his blue-collar sound. An ode to small-town America and specifically the plight of the American farmer, Scarecrow peaked at #2 and produced three Top 10 hits with the anthemic "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.," and the heartland homages "Lonely Ol' Night" and "Small Town."

Scarecrow occupies that rarified air in music of balancing commercial appeal with a strong universal message. Featuring some of the most reflective storytelling of Mellencamp's career, the loose concept album also includes such powerfully evocative classics as "Rumbleseat" and "Rain on the Scarecrow."

Most importantly, the album would help bring the singer/songwriter together with Willie Nelson and Neil Young in launching Farm Aid which remains into effect to this day. 180g audiophile vinyl pressing from Music On Vinyl featuring the bonus track "The Kind of Fella I Am."
