As a Rhodes Scholar, former military man, and former recording studio janitor, Kristofferson drew on a wealth of experience from the various social strata he'd inhabited and created a rich body of work that spoke to the daily trials and fleeting joys of people without privilege, those seeking not riches but rather a moment of clarity, a tender touch, a peace of mind. Even before this 1970 debut album was released, Kristofferson's compositions were already shaking up the Nashville establishment. On the strength of this album, it's easy to hear why. The album includes such much-covered Kristofferson standards as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "For the Good Times," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," along with lesser known -- but no less stirring -- cuts as "To Beat the Devil" and "The Other Side of Nowhere." This newly expanded edition adds four previously unreleased bonus tracks, including the swaggering original version of Kristofferson's cautionary autobiographical tale "The Junkie and the Juicehead Minus Me."
