Help Me Make It Through the Night
Sammi Smith, who died in Feb. 2005, had an exemplary reputation in the country music world. After some regional success, she became a resident of Nashville in the early '70s where she gained a reputation as a singer who was not going to compromise her integrity for the Nashville 'method' of attaining stardom. This attitude brought her into the circle of performers then known as "outlaws" where she befriended those artists at the forefront of the movement, including Kris Kristofferson, who gave her his latest song "Help Me Make It Through the Night" which became not only a Country #1, but also a pop top ten hit too. This CD contains the original "Help Me Make It Through the Night" LP plus a selection of her other Mega label singles and album tracks. Acrobat. 2005.
