The emergent winner turned out to be the version offered by The Flying Burrito Brothers, a version that I came to like more with each playing. Anyway, they garnered 8 votes from the participants.
The Kris Kristofferon / Rita Coolidge effort was not without support with their more conventional 1970's country duet style. Five votes were cast for them.
Apparently, some may have issues with Kris Kristofferson, who has been inclined to be self-indulgent in some of his songs.
Clint West brought up the rear with 3 votes.
