  1. Yes please. And while I’m here, let me mention what a great performance Kristofferson gave as a human drum stand on “Lay Lady Lay.”

  2. Here’s my entry!

    Saw Kris at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga last month with Merle Haggard. Was an amazing show! Some overzealous female fans kept shouting out various requests, and he played them all. A classy, talented guy!

  3. I’d love to shake my old nickname…”No Luck Chuck”. Help me please and enter me in the KK contest. I’d love to hear these demos. Thanks!

  4. all i need is this and for a criterion version of “CONVOY” to be released to REALLY complete my Kristofferson collection!

  5. That kindly jailer grinned at me, all eaten up with sympathy
    Then poured himself another beer and came and whispered in my ear,
    “If booze was just a dime a bottle boy, you couldn’t even buy the smell”

  6. wishin’ & hopin’ …. watching Lone Star with fingers crossed … count me in for the drawing!


  8. 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.

  9. “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.” I want to win!

  10. Dre and me use to bump Kristofferson on my system when trying to come up with rhymes back in da day. Inspiration fo sure.

  11. Enter me in the contest, please! I love Kristofferson’s writing, from “Sunday Morning Coming Down” to his latest record.

  12. And Kris is a great actor too. Heaven’s gate, Michael Cimino’s movie is one of my favourite ever…

  13. Huge kk fan from hearing my dad recite his life story and play his songs on guitar for me as a child of the 70’s

  14. Enter me! And if I don’t win the vinyl, can I have the jacket Kris is wearing in the photo? Looks tough.

  15. 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!
    Enter me please!

  16. 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!

  17. Kris Kristofferson is my barometer for how I judge all singer / songwriters, the original “Hardcore Troubador”! It would be a blessing to have this LP on my turntable.

  18. 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!!!

  19. If I had a helicopter I would land it on your lawn for this! By the way. thanks for the best music blog in the blogging world by my count. Cheers.

  20. holy smokes, that’s a couple slabs of awesome. the sheer number of replies is a testament to the good taste of you and your readers.

  21. I hope I’m not too late to enter — I work nights. He’s teh best songwriter ever!

  22. Shuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuukcs, I’m too late, aren’t I? My KK friend who turned me on to AD would KILL me if I didn’t enter this!

  23. Well if I’m too late then I guess I’m too late, but if I’m early then I surely would like to get my hands on this…

  24. Kris is a great american, his background is amazing…great contest from one of the best blogs on the web…
