BEST  of  KRISTOFFERSON

A Listmania! list by highwayman-B (U.S.A and Canada)
The list author says: "***Note: Kris' new movie (Dec 2013)ANGELS SING is a gem. Limited theatrical release but it's already on DVD. Waiting now for the soundtrack to be available.Latest CD FEELING MORTAL disappointing.
Kris is my favorite musical performer, barely edging out Willie Nelson. Sadly, all collections of what is called his best are compiled as if his career ended in the 70's. Though movie roles (and for awhile semi-retired family life in Hawaii) slowed his later
musical output.Lately he's recording and touring more again. Since the 80's, each album always contained a few gems which have unfortunately never been collected in a "BEST OF...Volume 2" So we have to compile our own. Country music's Rhodes Scholar, he's our best songwriter and his ability to communicate lyrics rivals Sinatra. One producer said: "Kris has a voice like a frog, but a frog that communicates." (Kris' latest CD is at the bottom of this list only because it's the most recent). Kristofferson is also a devotee of the poetry of William Blake, whose poetry is full of Christian theology and allusions to God's grace and blessings, much like some of Kris' writing.
Shocking and breathtakingly stupid is the fact that CMT left Kris
off their 'Greatest 40 Men of Country' list. People can differ about some of those on the list, but leaving Kris off is INSANE!!!(especially when you look at the list!) Did someone have a grudge, amnesia or what?"
Essential Kris Kristofferson
1.  Essential Kris Kristofferson by Kris Kristofferson
The list author says:
  "Disc 1 has most of his 70's gems, missing WHEN I LOVED HER. And if you could also sub THE LAST TIME and WHY ME LORD? from Disc 2 for Billy Dee and Darby's Castle on Disc 1, disc 1 would be perfect. Disc two, as Borat would say, 'not so much' with some disposables but also some goodies that are on better discs elsewhere."

Miracle in the Wilderness
4.  Miracle in the Wilderness DVD ~ Kris Kristofferson
The list author says:
  "Taking the opp to mention my fave Kris movie. Settler Kris' wife explains the good news of Jesus Christ to their Indian  aptors, rekindling Kris in the process. Poetic gripping
adventure. Incidently Kris credits his own 'spiritual awakening' to accepting an invitation to a Nashville Baptist church by Connie Smith, Marty Stuart's wife."

Breakaway
7.  Breakaway by Rita Coolidge
The list author says:
  "This 2nd album by Kris&Rita is actually also Kris' second best album with NINE really good songs. Only two weak ones, DAKOTA and I'VE GOT TO HAVE YOU. Thing is, Kris' fondly remembered early classic albums really only have a few masterpieces each, surrounded by filler which is at best mediocre.(Not an insult...it's true of EVERY artist)"

This Old Road
38.  This Old Road by Kris Kristofferson
The list author says:
  "2006. Like his previous two CDs, still borrows from previously recorded material. Best cuts are the title track(better than the former version) and Pilgrim's Progress. His redo of Burden of Freedom not nearly as good as ex-wife Rita's mentioned above. He did much of this in Toronto last fall with guitar only. I prefer more variety of instrumentation (a backup band)."

The list author says:
  "2009. Aging voice. I'd still rather listen to him than 99% of other singers.(Not an exaggeration). But that's because I'm a 4-decade fan. Those whose first exposure is Kris' latest CD 'Feeling Mortal' will think he's starting to SOUND like Gabby Hayes, even though still an attractive guy at 76.  Clips only on MP3. Best cuts here are 1,2,6,11."
