  64. This would help me make it through the night.

  65. Lonmg ago when I was young (born in 1951) I went away to college in the fall of 1969. I joined the radio statio at school and learned the value of promotional record castaways; that one man’s meat was another’s poison. It was there I picked up my first Kris Kristofferson 45s of Me and Bobby McGee and Help Me Make It Through the Night on Monument Records. I ended giving them away to musician friends who hadn’t heard anything by him, though they already heard his name. It’s always been like that for me. Maybe it always will be. I’m always sharing what I have musically with others.

  66. KKContest.

  144. Got his first pre-lp 45s on Monument when I went away to school in fall of 1969. Gave the 45s away to other musicians and kept the first LP when it, too went into the giveaway pile at my radio station. What did they know? I knew then he was something…plus he had Zally from the Spoonful playing guitar with him on tour that year!

  148. What an amazing project this is! A true testament to the passion of some of these small record labels!

    One of my favorite Kristofferson songs is a smoldering track that Carly Simon recorded called “I’ve Got to Have You” from Anticipation. I would love to hear Kristofferson’s demo for that one!

  154. Yes prease.

  155. I have had a crush on Kris Kristofferson since 1978 when I saw Convoy at a very young age. (You’d think I’d have that girl-hate for Ali McGraw, but I sort of have a crush on her too!). For carrying the torch for all of these years, I deserve the big PRIZE! I will solute you, Aquarium Drunkard, by drinking copious amounts of wine while listening the dulcet tones of KK on my turntable, with the lights turned low….If you pick me!!!
