Back in 1976, Dolly Parton had her own syndicated variety show. It ran only for the 1976/77 season. The show is your typical 70's era variety show with popular music guest stars of day, although the budget for Dolly's show wasn't on par with say Sonny & Cher or Donny & Marie, as such the show does have a cheaper look to it. Every show started off the same, Dolly decends from the ceiling on a swing to her song "Love Is Like A Butterfly" she then goes into her opening song, which was usually a pop hit of the day. The guests come out and it's pretty much non-stop singing for the next half hour. Some of the concpets for the show are little odd, Dolly singing to a basset hound by the water, Kenny Rogers being locked in a crate on stage, or Billy Davis & Marilyn McCoo dancing with life preservers while singing "Proud Mary" with Dolly.

The show is vintage Dolly though, she's got the big hair, the big ear rings, the bell bottoms and lot's of polyester and rhinestones. Her later series from 1987 was slightly better, but this is Dolly at a time in her career when she was just starting to become a household name. The songs are great and the jokes are corny. Dolly fans will undoubtedly love this, fans of 1970's music will most likely enjoy this as well.

Let's start with the good stuff. First of all it's great to actually see some of her first TV show surface on DVD. And there are some very good performances from Dolly and all of her friends. If you didn't get to see these when they were originally aired and you're a Dolly fan you're in for a treat. Now for the bad part, these are edited musical performances mostly. I think there is maybe one skit from the show actually on the dvds. Basically the format is Dolly's entrance to the show with a song, then she introduces her guest, the guest performs a song, then usually there's a Dolly number then she teams up with the guest for a song then it's Bye Bye. I really would LOVE to have seen this collection actually use the ENTIRE broadcast the way it was originally aired. If you're a Dolly Parton Fanatic like I am, it's definitely worth the money, if you're just a casual fan or a fan of one of her guests you might want to reconsider your purchase.

I can give this DVD 5 stars even before viewing it because I taped every one of Dolly's 1976-77 shows on my trusty ol' Betamax and played them over and over until that Betamax eventually croaked. In fact, I'd happily pay the asking price for this DVD just for the show that featured Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. For those who've already heard their soaring harmonies on their two "Trio" CD's, you already know you're in for a treat but hearing Dolly, Emmylou and Linda do "The Sweetest Gift" is guaranteed to give you goose bumps. The other guests featured on this CD are also fine choices and highlight Dolly's ability to effortlessly slip into any musical style. I've been waiting YEARS for Dolly's 1970's TV show to be released on DVD ... here's hoping this DVD is just the first in a series!

Format: DVD
Not to be confused with Dolly Parton's 1987 variety show on ABC; this is Dolly, her Nashville-produced syndicated music show from 1976-77. I remember watching this on WFLD-TV (channel 32) in Chicago at 10 or 10:30pm, and it's nice to see six of these shows again after all these years. Dolly's down-home personality really shines with these performances and in her interactions with her guest stars. Her voice is in fine form and it's a treat to see her perform many of her earlier favorites. There are plenty of throw-away comedy bits involving her guests, but that was pretty much par for the course when these shows were produced. Fans will especially enjoy seeing Dolly perform with Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt (hinting at what they would eventually strike gold with their "Trio" recordings), not to mention Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray, Ronnie Milsap, Rod McKuen, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. Although I was hoping to see McCoo/Davis sing their big hit "You Don't Have To Be a Star", I really enjoyed their performances of "I Hope We Get To Love In Time" and "You Can't Change My Heart", and I'll have to seek out their album featuring those songs. Big pluses for this DVD include a clear, crisp picture, especially when considering these shows are over 30 years old (they didn't even look THIS good on Channel 32 when they originally aired!), and each DVD has a bonus musical performance from when Dolly appeared on Porter Wagoner's show. This DVD set is a MUST for all Dolly fans, and since this set features only six episodes, here's hoping this is merely the first of more to come.

Format: DVD
I first purchased a VHS set of Dolly Parton's entire 1976 show, "Dolly". There were 26 delightful episodes, that were entertaining, fun, sometimes cheesy, always over the top, and very fascinating. Even though the tapes are worn and the print wasn't good, since it was from an original 1970's VCR recording, I loved the episodes and paid a great deal of money for them.

When I heard that they were putting part of that variety show on DVD I was excited. I got my copy and I LOVE IT!!! Dolly looks absolutely stunning and so incredibly different in a remastered DVD than a 25 year old copy. I was almost startled at the clarity of both sound and picture. It is a nice taste of what the series has.

What is disappointing is that it is missing SOOOO much of the series. She had many amazing and sometimes bizarre guests during it's run. We only get to see a bit of the magic of Dolly in the '70s. It would be nice if this company would put out a DVD set of her show from 1976 because her fan base practically NEEDS it. Every episode has the viewer wanting to know what she is going to wear next, as she floats down from the ceiling on her red velvet swing, all rhinestoned jumpsuits, unbelievably engineered outfits, and immaculately coiffed, bouffant, platinum hair. She smiles and has the flash and dimples we have come to love from her. She easily sings all kinds of material. THere are cute comedy sketches and little gems throughout. But we don't get to see all of that on here.

Hopefully they will realize that Dolly fans will buy a DVD boxed set of this series. When I bought my VHS copies, almost 10 years ago, people were paying upwards of $300. I think there is a market. I hope they see that, since this is such an amazing period in Dolly's career, right after leaving Porter Wagoner, right before super stardom. MPI needs to make this happen!

Get it, because Dolly is always stunning, always entertaining, and always a joy to enjoy!
