Default Re: Me and Bobby McGee

Could be he just liked the way it sounded...he heard Kris playing it in a hotel room and I think it was Red Shea who brought his attention to it and said he needed to record it. So I imagine he heard how Kris pronounced it and thought his way sounded better for him.. The tune takes us on a ride through California so I'm sure he knew it was Salinas, California..
