Kris Kristofferson 2xLP Tribute in Deluxe Gatefold cover! PIAPTK-100

This item isn't currently available.

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.

While there have been several other Kristofferson Tributes, this is the first one that is not exclusively Country/Americana Artists. The fact that these songs translate so well to so many weird niches of modern indie rock is a testament to the power of Kris' writing.
