Sunday Morning Coming Down

It’s not the first, it won’t be the last, but an album that has just come out which features people covering Kris Kristofferson songs.

It’s a rather fine piece of work, demonstrating the universality of Kristofferson’s compositions, featuring as it does covers ranging from Dean Martin (Just the Other Side of Nowhere) to Isaac Hayes (the titular For the Good Times).

What makes For The Good Times – The Songs of Kris Kristofferson different is that amongst all the cover versions, there stands KK, performing The Taker; presumably it’s the compiler’s favourite and nobody had covered it.

King of all included, in my opinion, is this rather fine bluegrass version of the song from which the title of this series is pinched:

Bobby Osborne & the Rocky Top X-Press – Sunday Morning Coming Down

I suspect we’ll be returning to this album at some point.

More soon.
