Kristofferson

Album Cover

The latest installments in Sony Music's ongoing "American Milestones" series - offering lovingly remastered classic albums, all studded with rare bonus tracks - spotlight some of country's more eclectic, underappreciated and sometimes rebellious artists.

While Kris Kristofferson's songs were crucial to setting the tone for country's Outlaw movement, the mainstream never warmed to the man himself. His debut album, 1970's Kristofferson, is loaded with songs which became hits for others - "Help Me Make It Through The Night," "Me And Bobby McGee," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" - but they're delivered in Kris' own world-weary voice, not a sound the masses ever embraced commercially. Luckily, these songs - except the wildly dated "Blame It On The Stones" - are indestructible.
