By the time Monument came to release Kristofferson's second album, The Silver Tongued Devil and I, in July 1971, he was the author of four songs that had topped the country or pop charts for others. Kristofferson himself had not yet reached the charts with a recording of his own, but his spectacular success as a songwriter made The Silver Tongued Devil and I a much-anticipated record. One consequence of this was that Monument was willing to spend more money; three of the album's songs boasted strings and another a horn section. But the key, of course, was still the songwriting, and though there were several excellent songs, the album could not live up to its predecessor, which was the culmination of years of writing. Typically for a second album, Kristofferson reached back into his catalog, presenting his own treatments of "Jody and the Kid" and "The Taker," which had been hits for Roy Drusky and Waylon Jennings, respectively. In his newly written material, Kristofferson continued to examine the lives of society's outcasts, but the antiestablishment tone of some of Kristofferson was gone along with much of the wry humor, and in their place were touches of morbidity and sentimentality. Kristofferson retained his gift for intimate love songs, and the album's most memorable selections turned out to be "Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)" (which became a semi-standard) and "When I Loved Her." And even if his observations seemed less acute, his talent for wordplay often rescued the songs from banality. On its way to becoming a gold record, The Silver Tongued Devil and I reached the pop Top 20, Kristofferson's career high on that chart, and the country Top Five; thus, Kristofferson made the transition from being a successful songwriter to a successful recording artist. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

Kris Kristofferson was at his commercial peak as a recording artist at the time that Full Moon, his first duo album with Rita Coolidge, was released in September 1973. His single "Why Me" had topped the country charts two months earlier, and his album Jesus Was a Capricorn was about to do the same thing. And, only weeks before Full Moon's release, the couple had gotten married. All of that made for a terrific send-off for the record, which benefited the careers of both participants. Not surprisingly, it was an album of love songs. Despite Kristofferson's greater celebrity, the LP was made with Coolidge's strengths in mind. David Anderle, its producer, was her producer, and it was released on her record label, A&M. The songs were set in her key, with Kristofferson crooning along in an unusually high register. The tempos were mostly slow, emphasizing the dreamy quality of Coolidge's voice. And the songs were mostly covers, though there were two joint compositions by the couple, one old Kristofferson song ("From the Bottle to the Bottom," a Top 20 country hit for Billy Walker in 1969), and one new Kristofferson tune, the Caribbean-flavored "A Song I'd Like to Sing," which was released as the first single and became a Top 40 pop hit while also reaching the country and easy listening charts. With that, the album became a number one country hit. "From the Bottle to the Bottom" won the 1973 Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. The album's second single, a cover of Tom Jans' "Loving Arms," also made the pop, country, and easy listening charts, and because it was released in the 1974 eligibility period for the Grammy Awards, it earned the couple a second nomination in the same category the following year. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

Kris Kristofferson fait partie de ces artistes aux mille facettes surprenantes masquées par un génie artistique certain. Le Texan fut tour à tour militaire, auteur, interprète, acteur, concierge, barman, porte-parole politique et, surtout, un des plus grands songwriters de la country music. Plus de 500 artistes ont déjà enregistré ses chansons parmi lesquels Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin, Ray Charles et des centaines d’autres. Mais la voix profonde et sincère de Kristofferson apporte tout une authenticité à ses interprétations. Ce live de 1981 fait partie des enregistrements les plus mythiques du chanteur. Déjà, le concert se déroule à Austin, dans son Texas natal qu’il affectionne tant. Ce soir-là, il est resplendissant, sincérité comme jamais, dans un répertoire qui comporte certains de ses grands succès. Me and Bobby McGee, Loving Her Was Easier, Why Me? ou encore Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down. Une captation live absolument magique dans laquelle Kristofferson fait surgir toutes les émotions de ses textes, aidé par quelques complices majeurs comme Stephen Bruton à la guitare, Donnie Fritts aux claviers, Tommy McLure à la basse, Sammy Creason à la batterie, Billy Swann et Glen Clark. © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz
