Limited vinyl LP pressing. The Best That I Could Do 1978-1988 is the first greatest hits compilation album by singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, released by Mercury Records in 1997. It compiles Mellencamp,s most popular material recorded during his first decade with Riva and Mercury Records, beginning with 1978,s A Biography, up through 1987,s The Lonesome Jubilee, with a new recording of Terry Reid,s "Without Expression". Mellencamp picked the songs for the album and also came up with the title for the album. The album reached #33 on the Billboard 200. This album and Rough Harvest came about because, after leaving Mercury Records for Columbia Records, Mellencamp still owed the label two more albums.
