I forgot some of the great music that came from this era. I have just noticed (and ordered) this while doing some research. If you are in the UK (or order it from the UK as some US fans say it’s cheaper on this specific item at the time of writing), our site gets a small comm. If you are outside of the UK, a search should find one that does serve your home country. Either way, it’s a great find and I think it’s worth grabbing a copy.

Kris Kristofferson 1972 – Lennie’s on the Turnpike

Kris Kristofferson 1972 has much in common with Kris Kristofferson from any era.  A line of one of his songs is playing in my head as I write this,

Time changes everything, but it won’t change me. I love you. 

Kris Kristofferson – The Promise

Part of the Kris’ magic is the way his songs and sound are familiar yet unique – He somehow remains relevant within the music industry, and in the world itself.

Lorrie met Kris Kristofferson 1972

Lorrie Seng Kelley was introduced to music at a young age. She was only 12 when her Dad took her to Lennie Full name Lennie’s on the Turnpike.

She watched and listened to Kris Kristofferson play with Donnie Fritz, Stephen Bruton and Terry Paul. 

Many years later, she is still an avid Kris Kristofferson fan. She has tickets to Kris’ gig next year.

Lorrie tells her story

“My Dad took me to see him (Kris) at a nightclub – Lennie’s on the Turnpike in Danvers, MA. I am going to see him in PA next April and get an updated picture (hopefully). I am pretty sure he isn’t as easy to meet these days.”

Kris Kristofferson has certainly met many of his fans, and signed countless autographs over the years. It is true that he is harder to reach these days. He often tells us that the end of his gig takes him past his bedtime. We hope that Lorrie has the opportunity to get an updated picture, and if so, that this older one makes Kris smile, and remember his earlier days.

There’s more. We’ll let Lorrie tell it …

First …

Lorrie’s Autograph

“This is from the same night. I have Kris and all of the band’s autographs. My highlight of that night was being 12 years old and never kissed a boy, and have this man who I am crazy about kissing me right on my lips after taking the picture.  I tell everyone that my very first kiss was from Kris Kristofferson. My kids get sick of hearing it…lol!”
