Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends: The Publishing Demos 1968-72

    After 7 years in the business with 49 titles under their belt - ranging from French provocateur Serge Gainsbourg to Detroit psych-soul master Six to Rodriguez - how does Light In The Attic celebrate its 50th release? By bringing you their pinnacle album to date...

    Over 5 years in the making, and with the attention to detail and elaborate packaging the label is known for, LITA050 is none other than the never-before-released 1968-72 demos of Texas-born maverick songwriting legend Kris Kristofferson. With the outlaw highwayman's full blessing LITA presents Kristofferson's honest and upfront formative takes on the tunes that would eventually become part of the great American songbook. Since penning these numbers (many of which were written during the late-to-mid 60's while working as a janitor for Columbia Records in Nashville), over 500 artists including patron saint Johnny Cash, one time lover Janis Joplin, and coactor Bob Dylan (to name but three) have covered Kristofferson's material.

    While we shouldn't forget his vast commercial accomplishments as an award winning recording artist and actor in more than 70 films (working under Martin Scorsese and Sam Peckinpah) , it's these soul-stirring demos that laid the groundwork for his rough and tumble creative journey.

    First time ever available (with full approval from Kris Kristofferson), includes 60 page full colour booklet with testimonials from Dennis Hopper and Merle Haggard. Unseen photos, archival material, original Kris-penned lyrics.
