One of the best things about Willie Neslon is that he doesn't "cover" songs. He takes another artist's work, he interprets it and then delivers it in a distinctly Willie style. This album, originally released in 1979 is all songs written by friend and contemporary Kris Kristofferson. Kristofferson is one of the most underrated songwriters in music history in my book. So Willie had some killer material to work with, however his versions often top the originals which is saying a lot.
