This limited run release has been available for a few months now, but I just saw word in a Facebook update from Mike at People In A Position To Know that there are only 30-40 copies left of this fantastic tribute album on black vinyl.
People In A Position To Know assembled a unique collection of Kristofferson covers by the many artists who have worked with the label over the years. After a successful Kickstarter funding effort, the result is a double LP filled with unique musical takes on the great songwriter’s hits and lesser known tunes alike.
Grab this fantastic piece of art now before it is gone forever! I was lucky enough to manage to get a hold of the last of the 100 copies on red splatter vinyl with the silkscreen cover. However, if you are a vinyl lover and even a modest Kristofferson fan, you will not regret picking up this special release on one of the last 400 copies on black vinyl available. If you are outside the U.S., shipping will make the decision harder for you due to the recent USPS price changes – but luckily you can play the entire album below before deciding.
Shipping is $6 to the U.S., $17 to Canada, $22 to the rest of the world.
Kris Kristofferson’s music might not be quite as well known as his buddies Waylon, Willie, and Johnny, (who he was in a super-group, The Highwaymen, with) but amongst songwriters in the know, he is just as highly respected. Rhodes Scholar, helicopter pilot, songwriter, janitor, actor, heartthrob, and all-around Renaissance Man. His history is just as legendary as any of his outlaw country counterparts.
And now, PIAPTK Records wants to pay homage to this living legend and his songwriting through a new double LP full of amazing artists putting their own personal spin on his classic tales of ne’er-do-wells, miscreants, ladies men, hard luck heroes, and misunderstood every-men battling the devil. We contacted all of the friends and artists that we have worked with over the years, and within months, we had over 27 incredible submissions.
400 copies on black vinyl in deluxe gatefold covers. [30-40 copies left]
100 copies on red/brown/clear splatter vinyl in letterpressed/silkscreened covers. [SOLD OUT]
