IT’S About You is a new musical documentary that offers a rare and intimate look at the life and music of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp, writes Graham Walker.
And we have three copies on DVD up for grabs.
The film follows Mellencamp on his summer 2009 concert tour and during the recording of his most recent album, 2010’s universally acclaimed No Better Than This, the sessions for which took place at American musical and historical landmarks, including Sun Studios in Memphis and the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, GA.
We see Mellencamp recording – with a single mike and mono tape recorder more than half a century old – in the same hotel room where legendary bluesman Robert Johnson created some of his most memorable work.
Along the way, Mellencamp reveals a side not often seen by the public, in a film that becomes a soulful, highly personal meditation on small-town America.
The Wienerworld release, RRP £15.99, isw out now.
For a chance to win one of our three copies of the DVD, in our prize draw, simply email your full name and contact details, with StarCompJM in the subject field, to email@example.com.
