The Lonesome Jubilee

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
John Mellencamp's fascination with the American heartland came into full flower on Scarecrow, but with its follow-up, The Lonesome Jubilee, he began exploring American folk musics, adding fiddle, accordions, and acoustic guitars to his band, which allowed him to explore folk and country.
