Great songs by a great songwriter/poet
(5 out of 5 stars)
"How can you resist him? Of course he doesn't have a singing voice, BUT listen to the music. Listen to the poetry. Can you find a more touching song than Help Me Make It Through the Night or Me and Bobbi McGee? "I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yeserday/holding Bobbi's body next to mine." WOW!"

"this appears to be a story of kris's life done in song with others to help take the heat. Kris has always been able to write. What a talent. His music of life truly gets me into feeling as if I'm there with him. Each song seems to have been a part of him. Kris writes of life as he lives it. Hard and direct. This album will undoubtedly be a standard for all of his music and it will stand the test of time."
