"Immersing yourself in the environment of a real record store where music is celebrated and cherished adds real value to the experience of buying music. In some ways, that retail experience is as important as the music." - John Mellencamp

“He appreciates his fans, that is cool…”

“I'd love to win this. I'm a huge fan and so is my daughter. He gets better with age but I love Cherry Bomb!”

“Proud of my fellow Hoosier...celebrating and supporting Record Store Day…”

“I LOVE seeing John support Record Store Day this year! It's so very important to help independent record stores stay afloat (nothing better than hands on searching thru bins of music). It takes me back to my young girl days!”

How cool! I have been listening to his new album on vinyl. It's such a great sound. I'm happy to see he's supporting the small business records stores!

"I bought my first John Mellencamp album, Uh Huh, on vinyl at my local record store, and I bought his latest, Plain Spoken at my local record store! There's still nothing like going into a record store to buy an album. It's more than finally getting your hands on that long-awaited new release. It's the sights, the sounds, and the experience. I expect nothing less from an artist like John to support Record Store Day!" Read More
