Best of Dolly Parton CD

This is a gem of some of the best work Dolly has ever done. A total of eight tracks were written by her, the other two by Porter Wagoner who receives producing credit. Jewels here are "Jolene", "Coat of Many Colors", "I Will Always Love You", "Touch Your Woman", "My Tennessee Mountain Home", and "The Bargain Store". The Porter-written tunes are "When I Sing For Him" and "Lonely Comin' Down".
Although there were no new tracks from this collection the LP did manage to go all the way to #5 on the Country Charts.
I had no idea how much and how quickly I'd fall in love with this. The opening song "Jolene" had me hooked. It's actually a really good song to shake your booty to.
Most of the songs are right around 3 minutes, which I really like. There's never a boring ending or a chorus that goes on for 2+ minutes. Dolly's voice just soars over you. It's a great album to sing along to.
I prefer Dolly's "older" music (the 70s primarily). I think this was a great find. This a great start for anyone unfamiliar with Dolly.

older songs are a joy to listen to any day.
