In the summer of 1997, Kris Kristofferson spent a few days in Texas recording stripped-down versions of his best-known songs. Released in 1999, The Austin Sessions pairs the acclaimed outlaw country songwriter with a band of studio aces and guest harmony vocalists for intimate versions of classics like 'Me and Bobby McGee,' 'Why Me?' and 'Sunday Morning Coming Down.' Fred Mollin, who produced the original album, tells the story behind the sessions in the collection’s liner notes, which also feature several unpublished photos from the time. Left off the original album, 'Best Of All Possible Worlds' and 'Jody And The Kid' make their debut on this expanded version.
