Format: Audio CD
According to philosopher/poet William Blake, it is a sin for one to not take full advantage of the talent God has bestowed upon them. Kris Kristofferson, a man of many talents, had to have sinned somewhere. "He's a poet, prophet, pilgrim, preacher and problem when he's stoned." Add one more: patriot. His young adult life after graduation from Oxford was serving our country as a commissioned officer in the United States Army as a Ranger and helicopter pilot. Through his art, his God-given ability to weave original poetic prose with traditional American music, he painted a landscape of America that spoke to all people - laborers, soldiers, Native Americans, white-collar, blue-collar, religious: to those who've loved and lost, young and old("The Law is for Protection of the People"). In Kris' amazing repertoire of original work on this album, he touches every human emotion with haunting ease. "Me and Bobby McGhee" speaks to all of us who set out to find a pot of gold and ended up with nothing, but at least we tried - "better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all" as the saying goes. "Sunday Morning Coming Down" is biographical to any American man who may have lost a love and had a few too many, only to feel lonelier than ever walking the streets on the lonliest day of the week. And it ends with sheer brilliant prose: " ...somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin', and it echoed through the canyon, like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.....". "Just the Other Side of Nowhere" could be construed as a "sad" song, but somehow it conveys to the listener to never give up. Do you want to feel better? Then listen to "To Beat The Devil".Read more ›

I came across a wooden hut on the shores of lake Villarica in the south of Chile. Whilst sitting next to the hut and admiring the view I noticed someone had scratched something into the wall on the hut "freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose" from Me and Bobby Mcgee.

This quite simply the best album I have ever heard of any kind (and I don't consider myself a Country fan). In my opinion better than Pink Floyd's The Wall, Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and The Smiths' The Queen is Dead. Me and Bobby Mcgee makes you smile, makes you wonder, makes you reach all those moments in your life when you had time to feel.

Format: Audio CD
Kris Kristofferson burst on to a stagnant country scene and ripped it to shreds.Here was the common man who knew sadness (CASEY'S LAST RIDE,FOR THE GOOD TIMES,ME AND BOBBY McGEE),his generation (BLAME IT ON THE STONES,THE LAW'S FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE PEOPLE)and the effects of the bottle(SUNDAY MORNING COMIN' DOWN,BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS).His characters would go through trials,but would triumph(TO BEAT THE DEVIL)with the help of a friend(HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT).Many of these songs became country standards.I strongly reccomend you purchase this album and the follow up,THE SILVER TONGUED DEVIL AND I.

Kris Kristofferson is one of that small group of musicians (like Bob Marley) who transcends the musical genre he is generally said to belong to and who should therefore appeal to anybody who appreciates great music. His music is so, so much more than country music: it is lyrics verging on poetry sung beautifully to incredibly catchy tunes. The songs on this album are all in the good-to-great category, but my particular favourite is the classic Sunday Morning Coming Down. I also love the humour in Kristofferson's lyrics, which he fortunately performs in such a way that every word is clearly audible. I defy anybody not to smile upon listening to the lyrics of Best Of All Possible Worlds.
In short, an artist whose music should be in every music lover's collection. Do not be put off by the country label- Kristofferson is a musical genius.

Format: Audio Cassette
I came back to this cassette recently while driving and had to pull over from the tears clouding my eyes. "Blame it on the Stones" is hilarious and musically interesting. "Beat the Devil" is inspiring to all of us who struggle to succeed in one art form or another. "Me and Bobby McGee" is the definitive version, in my humble opinion, and it's that "I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday" that made me pull over. "For the Good Times" is brutally sad yet pretty. "Duvalier" and "Castle" are truly unique songs showing KK's range that early in his career.

And I can't imagine a more honest portrait of failure and sadness that "Sunday Morning Coming Down." If you only know Johnny's version, than it's worth picking up this CD/cassette to hear Kris's version. One of my all-time favorite performances.

A singular, unique album, with a couple of cringe moments maybe, but you're gonna get that when someone opens up this entirely. This album tears at my heart; I love it.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAME on July 10, 2002
Format: Audio CD
The proof of Kristofferson's craftmanship as a songwriter lies in the fact that songs like Me and Bobby McGee, Help Me Make It Through The Night, For The Good Times and Sunday Morning Coming Down have been covered thousands of times by artists from many different genres. This collection displays his literate songwriting while his gruff vocal is somewhat reminiscent of Willie Nelson. I also considered him to be straddling a position between country and folk, and this album is more folk than country with its incisive social comment as on Blame It On The Stones and The Law Is For Protection of the People. He introduces Bobby McGee with the words: "If it sounds country man, that's what it is, this is a country song." Besides the above-mentioned classics, the other songs are excellent too and I love his voice and the sparse arrangements. This album is a classic example of the best work of the 60s singer-songwriter genre.
