One of my favourite songs of all time is "Sunday Morning Coming Down". I love Johnny Cash's version, and Willie Nelson's, and also Gretchen Wilson's version on the recent Kristofferson tribute album. But I've never really been keen on Kris Kristofferson's own take. But here he re-works this great song, and 11 others, and re-ignites them with such passion it's difficult not to sit up and take notice.
It's almost unfair that one man should have written so many great songs, and they're all here: "Sunday Morning", "Me and Bobby McGee", "For The Good Times", "Help Me Make It Through the Night" - and that's just the first four! Biggest smile is reserved for "The Silver Tongued Devil and I" - tuneful, humourous, and just about perfect!
A superb collection of re-worked masterpieces. Highly recommended - buy this album!!!
