Album Review

If you're looking for the basics from singer/songwriter Kris Kristofferson's early-'70s Monument catalog, 16 Biggest Hits fits the bill. Kristofferson's coarse vocals considerably change the dynamic of songs like "Me and Bobby McGee," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," "Once More with Feeling," "For the Good Times" and "Help Me Make It Through the Night," from those of the artists' who actually took the songs to the top of the rock and country charts. Also of note is Kristofferson's "Why Me," his first chart entry as vocalist in 1972, and the 1984 hit "Highwayman," recorded by the short-lived supergroup of the same name featuring Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. While this compilation is highly recommended, for those listeners who want to go deeper into his catalog, pick up The Essential Kris Kristofferson on Columbia/Legacy, as it includes choice album cuts and duets with Willie Nelson and Rita Coolidge.

His songs "Me and Bobby McGee," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," and "For the Good Times," all chart-topping hits, helped redefine country songwriting, making it more personal and serious, much in the way that Bob Dylan's songs had transformed pop music songwriting in the mid-'60s. By 1987, it was estimated that Kristofferson's compositions...
