Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down: A Tribute To Kris Kristoffe
by Various Artists
Released: Apr 2002
Label: Jackpine Social Club
Kristofferson still disturbs the country establishment, but his tough/sensitive songs are now embraced by new generations. This loving tribute features Americana artists (Chuck Prophet, Tom Heyman, John Doe) who possess a touch of Kris's "whiskey and cigs" growl, as well as indie acts (Polara, Oranger) who show that great material can flourish when taken in new directions.
