Editors’ Notes Kristofferson changed the game in Nashville by bringing a post-Dylan poetic sensibility to country music. Leonard Cohen's literate sensuality and Tim Hardin's plainspoken, passionate folk balladry come through in Kristofferson's melancholy tales of loss, and the spirit of country's earliest outlaws like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams lives on in Kristofferson's refusal to bend to anyone's will but his own.
