The Complete Monument & Columbia Album Collection Box set
Kris Kristofferson

This comprehensive box-set contains almost everything Kris released on Columbia and Monument records between 1966 (his debut single; "Golden Idol / Killing Time" to 1981 with also a fair number of miscellaneous 1980's era solo and duet tracks. The contents of the box are summarised below:

"Kristofferson" (1970) (AKA "Me and Bobby McGee")
"The Silver Tongued Devil and I" (1971)
"Border Lord" (1972)
"Jesus Was a Capricorn" (1972)
"Spooky Lady's Sideshow" (1974)
"Breakaway" (1974, duet LP with Rita Coolidge; 2nd of a trilogy of duet albums)
"Who's to Bless and Who's to Blame" (1975)
"Surreal Thing" (1976)
"Easter Island" (1978)
"Shake Hands With the Devil" (1979)
"To the Bone" (1981)
"Live at the Philharmonic, 1972" (1st CD release in 1992)
"Live at The Big Sur Folk Festival, 1970" (Previously unreleased)
"Live at RCA Studios 1972: The WPLJ-FM Broadcast" (Previously unreleased)
"Extras" (Outtakes, non-album singles and 1980's era album tracks)
"Demos" (Previously unreleased)

The five "bonus" CDs include three live albums, only one of which has been released before: "Live At The Philharmonic" in 1992, and each of these are excellent if perhaps from a too brief period (1970-1972) in Kris' career though it could be argued that these are his true "peak" years. There is also a CD of demos, none of which appear to have been released before --- all are full band demos
Finally there is a CD of "extras"

So in conclusion a superb box-set containing a huge amount of music represents excellent value for money with a plethora of good to classic tracks, some of the best lyric writing in the country idiom and admirably lean'n'mean arrangements and playing with Kris' inimitable gravelly tones over the top Therefore in my opinion at least a firm thumbs up and a strong recommendation
