Biography

Biography by David Vinopal

It's difficult to find a country performer who has moved from country roots to international fame more successfully than Dolly Parton. Her autobiographical single "Coat of Many Colors" shows the poverty of growing up one of 12 children on a run-down farm in Locust Ridge, TN. At 12 years old she was appearing on Knoxville television; at 13 she was ... Read more in Amazon's Dolly Parton Store

This song is very good, though kinda out of place on this CD.
Tom
I highly recommend this c.d. However, if your a serious "Dolly fan", then get the double c.d. that has: Dolly, Dolly, Dolly, and Great Balls of Fire!
Michael Vanderhoof
I started buying Dolly's albums at the start of her pop career with "Here You Come Again."

Even when Dolly makes a less than perfect album there are always at least a few great songs on her albums. Being such a gifted songwriter, means she always has a gem or two up her sleave even when she's not at her best. This particular album kinda represents the opposite of that. Dolly did not write any songs on this album and this album doesn't really contain any outstanding songs. However, the production of this pop album and Dolly's pop vocals are so good it does what an album can rarely do, and that is being a great album without great songs. I know that doesn't normally make sense but after you listen to this CD all the way through you will see what I mean.

It's just one of those albums that has the "IT" factor. Its just extremely enjoyable with every listen and never gets old. The album was produced by Gary Klein. Gary was probably the only producer who knew how to produce Dolly when she sings pop to perfection. He only produced 3 albums for her but all 3 would be 5 star albums. While it is true that there woud not be any individual songs that would become ultra classics there are at least a couple that are very good with some substance. Those would be "Starting Over Again", a song written by Donna Summer and her husband. Its a very good heartbreak song about divorce. The description may sound like a classic country theme but after listening to the lyrics its much more of a heartbreak thats much more city than country. On the other hand the other song with substance is "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle To You". This song is very good, though kinda out of place on this CD. Its very country and it makes you wonder how Dolly got this included. Its pretty obvious that Dolly did have some control on this album by having this song included. It is just so different than the other songs here.

If your a fan of Dolly Parton's country catalogue of albums, you will be disappointed in this collection. "Dolly, Dolly, Dolly" is in essence a true pop record designed for the pop audience that Dolly aimed for in the late 1970's. Nevertheless, this album is a fantastic collection of pop songs, although there is one country ballad, the remake of "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle To You", that went all the way to #1 on the charts. I remember when this album and song came out; country fans loved the single, but couldn't believe it was the only country track on the whole album. If you are a huge Dolly fan like I am, however, Miss Parton can record anything and I will love it.
Most critics trashed this album when it was first released in April, 1980. Many said it was over-produced and poorly put together as Dolly was filming her first movie "9 to 5". I personally love the record. Some of her ardent fans have said it was the worst album of her career, but my bets are on her 1987 "Rainbow" release that didn't have a hit single. "Dolly, Dolly, Dolly" also spawned another #1 country hit and top 40 song, with the Donna Summer written "Starting Over Again". Other greats here are her "You're The Only One I Ever Needed", that sounds a lot like her "Here You Come Again" number, "Even a Fool Would Let Go" proved Dolly's voice is the best, and I also love the ballad "I Knew You When".
Take this Dolly release for what it is; a pop record geared to a larger market than the country audience. Although not seen as a country disc, the record went into the top 10 of the country charts. This is also one of only a handleful of Dolly records, out of her 80 in-studio albums in her catalogue, where she didn't write any songs. Dolly didn't have the time as she was preparing for her first acting gig in a major motion picture.
This CD also is available with her 1979 blockbuster album, "Great Balls of Fire"...look for that too!

The album "Dolly, Dolly, Dolly" is a really great combination of country, and pop. I don't feel that this album really hit the commercial success that it should have, but then came "9 to 5" and it was all up from there.

I highly recommend this c.d. However, if your a serious "Dolly fan", then get the double c.d. that has: Dolly, Dolly, Dolly, and Great Balls of Fire! Both of these titles have just recently been released on a (2 for 1). Which brings me to the title of this review...

Why is BMG Special Marketing bringing us duplicates of duplicates??? This title as I mentioned, has already been released on c.d. and as a (2 for 1). So why are we releasing the same titles in different format???

I'm not a marketing expert, but common sense would tell me that maybe releasing: Hearbreak Express (1982) WHICH HAS NEVER, EVER BEEN RELEASED ONTO C.D. FORMAT!!! Also, the title: The Great Pretender (1984) which was at one time on c.d format, about 25yrs. ago...

If BMG Special Services really wanted to do something smart(?) Let's put out a (2 for 1) on c.d. for the titles: Heartbreak Express and The Great Pretender!!! This would make more sense than releasing c.d.'s of the SAME THING over and over again.

Not to mention, that it also makes sense to put out onto c.d. format Heartbreak Express because collectors go for the entire discography, and not bits and pieces of compilations!!! So far, collectors can't complete the collection because you keep skipping it YEAR after YEAR!!

So, make it a goal to have this title out by the end of 2008, you will feel better about yourselves, and so will the fans!!! GET BUSY!!!
