Ace's much acclaimed Songwriter Series rolls into 2021 with a long overdue overview of the work of one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century. Kris Kristofferson's catalogue has been visited and revisited on scores of occasions over the past half century, with almost 1000 covers alone of just three songs one of which For The Good s gives this new 23-track collection its title. (The others are, of course, Me And Bobby McGee and Help Me Make It Through The Night). He may be primarily thought of as a country writer, but Kris songs have been interpreted by artists as diverse as Isaac Hayes, Dean Martin and Scott Walker all of whom are among those featured here. Although he wrote less as demand for his services as an actor with more than 80 films to his credit increased, more than a decade's worth of superior song-writing is covered in this collection, which also includes tracks by Kris' friends and fellow members of the 1990s project that was The Highwaymen - Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Songs you'll know well and songs you'll want to get to know well rub shoulders in this exceptional project, brought to you once again with all the care and attention you have come to expect from the Ace Songwriter Series. As always, many of the tracks are making their UK CD debut here. The inevitable bumper booklet, with track-by-track annotation and a raft of images, more than matches the standard of the music contained in For The Good s.
