Me And Bobby McGee - Kris Kristofferson - The Essential Kris Kristofferson (CD)

 · The foundation of Kris Kristofferson’s reputation as a songwriter is comprised of material from his first two albums, which fills up the first disc of this collection. During that time he injected an audaciously erudite sensibility into the candid, small-town storytelling of country music. Even now, it’s hard not to be stunned by the craft of “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night” .

His songs have been covered by over artists, and this 2-CD anthology collects all his essentials: Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again); Jesus Was a Capricorn; Why Me; Me and Bobby McGee; Highwayman (with Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash); For the Good Times, and 31 more!/5().

 · His best-known songs are here, in the original Kristofferson -sung versions: "Me and Bobby McGee," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," "Why Me," and "For the Good Times." His earliest Monument records are sampled particularly deeply, with no less than nine of the 12 songs from his debut, Kristofferson, appearing/10(30).

There is a history about different names and covers and I bought later version of vinyl named "Me and Bobby McGee", although it is identical to the initial version named "Kristofferson". If you want a vinyl, get whatever you can get your hands on, the sound on my copy is great, by the way/5(55).
