Now the best-known, best-loved of that music is available for the first time in the most expansive retrospective of his career, the two-CD WORDS & MUSIC: JOHN MELLENCAMP'S GREATEST HITS (Island/UMe), released October 19, 2004. The singer-songwriter-producer's only previous "best of" album was The Best That I Could Do (1978 -- 1988), a single-disc retrospective issued seven years ago.
Bringing together rock, folk, country, blues and R&B, Mellencamp has sold more than 40 million albums and received 11 Grammy nominations.
Spanning 25 years, 1979 to 2004, WORDS & MUSIC: JOHN MELLENCAMP'S GREATEST HITS celebrates the most popular and important roots rocker of his generation, including the upcoming single "Walk Tall" and "Thank You," -- two new songs -- both produced by Mellencamp and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. WORDS & MUSIC will also be featuring 37 digitally remastered selections and boasts all 22 Top 40 pop hits of his career to date, with 10 Top 10 hits, culled from 14 albums. The package also adds liner notes by Rolling Stone founder/publisher Jann Wenner, extensive track information and photographs.

Mellencamp, the recipient of the 2003 Woody Guthrie Award recipient and co-founder of Farm Aid (with Willie Nelson and Neil Young) still lives and records outside Bloomington, Indiana, near where he grew up, and remains an artist from and of the American heartland.

Human Wheels was under-rated from what I remember. It's probably my favorite Mellencamp cd from top to bottom (Scarecrow #2 IMO). I have most everything on this cd already, but I'll probably pick it up for the remastered older songs. The guy is a great song writer and he did a great job with the hot model wife from the Whenever We Wanted-era videos.

Looks like a good assortment of his stuff, although I'm not as familiar with the more recent work. Hard to believe he's survived 4 different stage names (Johnny Cougar, John Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp, John Mellencamp).

Too bad they didn't include a DVD of all his videos as well. That would have made it a perfect set but I'll still buy it anyway.

JM is one of my all time favourite artists. His songwriting is up there with people like Dylan,Springsteen and Billy Joel

"They say life goes on long after the thrill of living is gone" (from Jack & Diane 1982)
