SCARECROW - Mellencamp perfected his heartland rock with Scarecrow, a loose concept album about lost innocence and the crumbling of small-town America. His writing has never been more powerful: 'Rain on the Scarecrow' and 'Small Town' capture the hopes and fears of Middle America, while 'Lonely Ol' Night' and 'Rumbleseat' effortlessly convey the desperate loneliness of being stuck in a dead-end life. Cut from the original analog master tapes and reissued by UMe on 180 gram vinyl.
