Gray Sky #11 - The Rising Cost of Livin’ High and Lovin’ Hard - Various Artists
Produced entirely by the incredible Michael Dixon from People in a Position to Know, Gray Sky has the honor of co-releasing this record through pure acts of fortuitious inadvertence. A ton of great tracks and a fantastically packaged double LP. Only a few of these left, so get them while you can. Below is Mr. Dixon's description of this vinyl double LP.
The Rising Cost of Livin’ High and Lovin’ Hard: A Tribute to Kris Kristofferson:
Kristofferson’s music might not be quite as well known as his buddies Waylon, Willie, and Johnny, (who he was in a super-group, The Highwaymen, with) but amongst songwriters in the know, he is just as highly respected. Rhodes Scholar, helicopter pilot, songwriter, janitor, actor, heartthrob, and all-around Renaissance Man. His history is just as legendary as any of his outlaw country counterparts.
And now, PIAPTK Records wants to pay homage to this living legend and his songwriting through a new double LP full of amazing artists putting their own personal spin on his classic tales of ne’er-do-wells, miscreants, ladies men, hard luck heroes, and misunderstood every-men battling the devil. We contacted all of the friends and artists that we have worked with over the years, and within months, we had over 35 incredible submissions.
