- Closer to the Bone
- Artist: Kris Kristofferson
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 12/8/2009
Vinyl LP pressing. Kris Kristofferson returns to the essentials of his finely honed craft on his 2009 album Closer to the Bone. Like the master singer/songwriter's 2006 album This Old Road, this album is produced by Grammy Award winner Don Was. The previous collection was hailed by critics as 'one of the finest albums of his storied career' (Rolling Stone), 'a stripped-down stunner' (Esquire), and 'a return to his best work' (Q). Closer to the Bone is a deftly observed, honestly executed work about love, separation, loss, and mortality. The subject matter ranges from the musician's family ('From Here to Forever', 'The Wonder') to Kristofferson's late friend Johnny Cash ('Good Morning John'.)
