What a songwriter! Here is a treasure trove of his awesome music and lyrics. His vocals drip with raw power and the listener receives the "true" delivery of the songs, as Kris intended. Like Dylan, though, Kris' forte is as writer. Not so much as singer. This, regretably, makes listening to the author sing 'em infrequent for me. I'd much rather hear Peter, Paul and Mary sing "Blowin' In The Wind" than Dylan. And in Kris' case, Johnny Cash, Sammi Smith, Ray Price, etc., excel in doing Kris' music proud. I can listen to their renditions over and over with greater ease. This CD, though, does get high marks for passion and grit. Quite an experience.
