Vinyl LP pressing. 2010 album from the American singer/songwriter. No Better Than This is an album of all new original songs that was recorded at a variety of historically significant locations around the south. The album was produced by T-Bone Burnett who earlier collaborated with Mellencamp on the much-lauded Life Death Love and Freedom. No Better Than This was recorded over the course of a few break days afforded Mellencamp when he was on tour of minor league ball parks last year, sharing the bill with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. The album was recorded on vintage equipment - a 55 year old Ampex tape recorder with just one microphone - in Savannah at the First African Baptist Church, in Memphis at Sun Studios and in San Antonio in room 411 of the Gunter Hotel. Mellencamp wrote the 13 songs included on the album during a 13 day span last spring.
