Chestnut Street Incident - John Cougar Mellencamp

Chestnut Street Incident
Released 19/10/09.Released MCA in 1976, and recorded in 1975 when he was 24 years old, Chestnut Street Incident was the first long player from the legendary John Cougar Mellencamp. Then operating under the moniker Johnny Cougar, Mellencamp had been encouraged to record a number of cover versions to bolster the half a dozen originals included on the set by producer and Svengali Tony Defries, after he was famously awarded a recording contract with only a handful of songs to his name. The album is considered as invaluable by Cougar fans, not perhaps for its immediate quality or the fairly standard nature of the chosen material, but as a fascinating record of a young man desperately keen to make his first impression on the music industry. Future echoes of what was to come are in evidence, as are a huge dose of youthful cockiness and a degree of ambition rarely seen in a debut release. This reissue is bolstered with six Bonus Tracks from the sessions which didn’t make the album’s final tracklist, including a take on Bowie’s Man Who Sold The World and Hit The Road Jack.
