Stagecoach, Blood and Orchids and the Last days of Jesse James were released, the miniseries Amerika was in production. The album, Repossessed, hit the stores. Kris Kristofferson was as busy in 1986 as he is today.
Moments that Matter
Life is made up of many moments. Even in 1986, Kris kept some time aside for himself, his friends, fellow songwriters and performers.
Kristofferson and Ghent (who wrote the song Whisky, Whisky which Kris recorded) had a surprise encounter.

This was taken backstage at a bandshell concert in Webster Ma. in 1986….. Much to everyone’s surprise and delight, Kris had walked out on stage and joined me as I was singing “Whiskey Whiskey” In this photo, I have just introduced him to the late John Lincoln Wright who was sharing the bill with me.

Listen to Tom Ghent on YouTube : This is from 1967
The setlist for the evening included a well rounded selection from the Kristofferson catalogue, with some tunes brought in by his backing band, the Strangers, who once backed Kristofferson’s friend (and fellow country singer) Merle Haggard.
