Omg I remember Sue and the Boar's Nest, we were told not to ever go there. It was the musician and singer, song writers who hung out there, I am surprised this was done, you can guess why!
Mr Kris Kristofferson my father was named David Ellis Oddstad his father was naval officer andres oddstad. Going through family records I've found you mentioned as a family friend to andres and clara oddstad is southern California. My grandfather was a architect and my father was adopted around the same time you were friends with my grandfather. Doubt you will see this message however my father passed away and i came across old letter where he wrote to a private eye that had concluded you may have been involved in the adoption somehow weather your actually my grandfather or you helped my grandfather adopt. My father records are getting old and hard to proof but if any of this sounds familiar or may be true I would like to learn alittle about your life more and get to know you.... All the best doubt you will see this for all I know my father was crazy but the stories do line up.... even if you knew my grandparents would like to know .
I remember seeing this on television a few years ago and I put it on a video tape. Don't know what became of it. Wonderful tribute to Sue Brewer!

I sure enjoyed all that talent & of course, my favorite is Kris Kristofferson!! I wonder what year this was??
Just saw Kris on the Lennon birthday show. He sounded as though he first heard "Working Class Hero" 5 minutes before taking the stage! Rough.
Kris💕. Such a sweet face and crackly voice! Endearing.....
What a great group of talent!
i was his driver when he was in Albany with Jane Fonda doing the movie roll over 🙂
I could watch this all day. Real “born with it” talent.
I don't know if I can choose between "Sunday Morning Coming Down" and "Me and Bobby McGee." I mean, those two lines:
"...and the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad so I had one more for dessert."
"Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose. Nothin' ain't worth nothing but it's free."
Two of the saddest, most poignant lines of country music ever written. How can I declare one greater than the other?
I have seen the morning burning golden on mountains in the skies, aching with the feeling of the freedom of an eagle when she flies. This is perfection.
No question about it! "Why me Lord, what have l ever done, to deserve even one... of the pleasures I've known?"
Why Me? Used to play it over and over. I loved the movie "A Star Is Born" and the music is awesome. I was lucky enough to see him in concert. I love Kris and still consider him one of the sexiest men ever born.
Almost all of them, I love Why Me and Sunday Morning! I love Kristofferson music ! I believe Silver Tongue Devil should be there as well I love that one!
I love anything he sings, but have to say Lovin Her Was Easier and Sunday Morning Coming Down are two of my all-time favorite songs.
The whole songbook is a national treasure. Also love his acting. He has lived hard and fast and has shared that experience, heartbreak and zest with us all.
Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down may be the best song ever. The Pilgrim - Chapter 33 and Loving Her Was Easier are also great. Actually there all great.
I was running through the summer rain trying to catch the evening train and kill that old familiar pain weaving through my tangled brain when I tipped my bottle back I smacked into a cop I didn't see... (all in one breath)
ALL of them, in my opinion every song he's ever written is an intimate glimpse into life. Mine or someone I know.
Nobody Wins. In fact I think this is my favourite Kris song but so hard to choose, all his songs are great. xx
My father passed away about a week before your show in Denver we got to go in his honor you were one of his favorite artists and one of my big influences as well and the highlight of the night was the first song he ever taught me how to play is Why Me Lord
i love so many of his songs. Bobby McGee is an all time favorite but i also love " he's a walking contradiction , partly truth and partly fiction, taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home." Mainly because they resonated with me in my young life, still love them.
Sunday Morning Coming Down or For The Good Times, one of the most beautiful love songs. Darby's Castle - another of my all time favourite songs but it's not on the list, and Me & Bobby McGee brings back so many happy childhood memories of going camping when I was a child when there'd be 9 of us and a dog in a Ford Capri with the windows open and the 9 of us singing it at the top of our lungs. Thanks for the great music <3
.... if someone has never woke up to the smell of someone frying chicken on a Sunday or walked outside of church to the smell of fried chicken in the neighborhood I feel sorry for them .... this song pulls at my heart every time I've ever heard it
The Pilgrim - 33 and Jody and the kid. The Silver Tongued Devil was one of the first albums I ever bought when I was about 16. Still love it. A classic.
I love them all...can't choose one!!😙 Sunday morning coming down, why me Lord, Under the gun, Me and Bobby Mcgee and loving you is easier, than anything i'll ever do again💜💜
Everything on the Greatest 16 ... also the Spooky Lady Sideshow album... "The Other Side of Nowhere Goin' Home" tops the list.
Me & Bobby Mc gee, Sunday morning, I know this post says from Kris Kristoffersons greatest hits but I also love the Highway men songs he colllaborated on too him with the legends Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jonny Cash.
He looks so much like my late brother, so we get to see how Sam would've aged! Sunday morning comin down I think is my favorite, but he wrote SO many great songs!!
I used to go into my eldest brothers room when he wasn't home & listen to whatever he left on the record player so he wouldn't know I'd been in there. One day Kris Kristofferson was on it and I fell in love the first time I heard him and bought every album I could ever since then. I grew up with Kris. I learned many lessons from his songs. His music took me through several years, hard, learning years. His music is still a comfort to me. I have seen him twice. The first time, my son was inside me, and the 2nd time my son was right beside me. A lifetime of wonderful memories. I passed his music on to friend & family. My youngest brother still listens to one song he heard 30 years ago: "Stallion". My children, (on my prompting), bought me "Cedar Creek Sessions" one year for my birthday. He is a Very intelligent man with common sense. A rare find indeed!
Sunday Morning Coming Down. I saw Chris long ago at the Lions Share in San Rafael. He was so high, he kept falling off the stage.
Of those, Sunday morning coming down. All of them are great, and he has so many more, not on this album.
How can I pick one when the Album says 16 biggest hits? Ok, if I have to I'll pick Help Me Make It Through the Night. I love the way Kris says "your hair"!! He helps me make it through the day with his songs.
Way too many choices. Sunday morning coming down always works for me. Love them all!! Darby’s Castle another classic!! Sure they are all inspiring!! Genius at work. Paul Wilson yes ??
