10 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Kris Kristofferson's 1970 debut blew country music wide open with its despairing lyrics and folk-rocky sound, and his sophomore salvo kept the ball rolling on his outlaw attitude. Be it the title track's examination of a slithering playboy, the mournful countrypolitan grace of “Jody and the Kid,” or Kristofferson’s husky salute to other outlaw legends on "The Pilgrim, Chapter 33," The Silver Tongued Devil and I is lined with songs that would influence folk, rock, and country for decades to come.
