Kris me quick


I'D RECOMMEND Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends, a collection of recordings by country singer-turned-actor Kris Kristofferson, to Kevin Costner.
A few days ago my underwhelmed criticisms of Costner's album Turn It On sparked a debate over whether his music matches his movies - a debate I very much doubt will take place in the comments on this post.
Because this collection of stripped bare early demos showcases an oft-forgotten songwriting talent who penned tracks adopted by the likes of Janis Joplin, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash.
Now better-known for films like Blade, Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia and Planet Of The Apes, Kristofferson's earlier work shows the likes of Costner how they should go about getting credit for both disciplines.


  1. how dare you speak about kevin c in this manner never thought you could sing worth a damn. and im 65. he is a multil talenented man. good for him. hes now in italy making a film. you never could sing nor act and you have the balls to speak out against a man that already has his finaces in order but wants to continue to enjoy what his heart is close to him. shame on you. you have no right.

  2. I have a right to speak out, as I was sent a copy of his album to review. I didn't just pick it at random.
    And either way I'm perfectly entitled to listen to it and decide that his music is uninspiring and derivative.
