The Austin Sessions is the fourteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson, originally released in August 1999 by Atlantic Records.

There can’t be that many people, of a certain age, who don’t know the music of Kris Kristofferson in one form or another. 

His early songs were covered by a wide variety of performers, from Janis Joplin to Johnny Cash, and this collection, which revisits and reworks many of those hits, confirms his status as a writer.

For The Austin Sessions, his first set of new original songs in years, Kris Kristofferson decided to record a set of stripped-down new versions of his classic songs Recorded in Austin (no surprise there) and produced by guitarist Fred Mollin, the album sees Kristofferson joined by a galaxy of singers who offer harmony to counter his voice, among them Jackson Browne, Steve Earle, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Catie Curtis, Matraca Berg and Mark Knopfler

The latter also plays lead guitar on “Please Don’t Tell Me How The Story Ends”, joining other string slingers like Stephen Bruton and John Willis, while Jim Cox plays some expressive keyboards throughout. 

The Austin Sessions is a good introduction to Kris Kristofferson who at 63 is still a vital writer, singer, poet, actor and photographer. A welcome alternative to the many compilations out there, it serves to underline the deceptive simplicity and strength of his work.

Check out the tracks: “Sunday Morning Coming Down”; “Me And Bobby McGee” and “For The Good Times”.

This album is now released on vinyl for the very first time!

This LP with remastered audio is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
