Editors’ Notes

This solid anthology pulls together Kris Kristofferson's best-known tunes, concentrating on his classic '70s albums. Many of these songs were made famous by others, like "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" (Johnny Cash), "Me and Bobby McGee" (Janis Joplin), and "Help Me Make It Through the Night" (Sammi Smith)–but hearing them delivered by their writer underlines the way Kristofferson mated a poetic power worthy of Townes Van Zandt or Bob Dylan with a loose-limbed boozy charm à la Jerry Jeff Walker or Bobby Bare. And the addition of "Highwayman" from the '80s supergroup The Highwaymen shows how his legacy spanned eras.
