Megan's Top 70 of 2010: #34 - Kris Kristofferson

Why I Decree it to Be So:

By this point, we all know (or hopefully know) the name Kris Kristofferson. But what yours truly didn’t know was just how much I’d fall in love with Kristofferson, the voice, and this here record. Light In The Attic has scored another hit with this release of a collection of Kristofferson demos (their 50th release!), recorded over a 4 year period and pieced together with the man himself's approval. I was well and truly blown away by the simple, honest quality of the recordings, and have found them to be a frequent player in my current listening rotation. Beautifully stripped and laid bare, the rough quality of the demos belies just how very good the songs are, and yet the roughness adds to the overall appeal of the record. The songs are so lonesome they might just make you cry, that being what a good ole country song has the power to do. I guarandamntee you’re gonna enjoy this. (SEE MORE)
