An excellent album, to my mind Kris Kristofferson's best. It truly displays his great talent as a songwriter, lyricist and singer. The styles range from the ironic (Blame it on the Stones and The Law is for Protection of the People), to the somewhat sad (Darby's Castle) and romantic (Help Me Make It Through The Night). Sunday Morning Coming Down evokes the lonliness of the Saturday night drunk spending Sunday alone. Let's not forget the title track, Me & Bobby Mcgee, which I feel encapsulates all of the above styles and feelings in the one song.

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.

I bought this on cassette when it first came out and played it to death both in the car and at home. What a jot it is to hear it again - his later stuff is not a patch on this!!

I bought this because I was on a nostalgia kick, and it brought back happy memories of when I bought it way back on vinyl. Most KK fans will already have it, but for any new fans .... buy it.
