The Great Balls Of Fire was a pop record that had everything from Jerry Lee Lewis to Beatles covers. It had the hit You're The Only One. And the most country song on the record Sweet Summer Lovin'. It depends on how big of a fan you are as to how well you like this. It is more pop then anything else she ever did. When the Dolly Doll Dolly album came out. She was basically a pop star who was still getting country radio play. It has the hits Stating Over Again and Old Flames Cant Hold A Candle To You. Which I think it was Joe Sun who had a hit with not too long before that. My favorite song is a total rocker. Packin' It Up which closes out the cd. That song always reminded me of the time period that the song was from. When we'd all go out on Friday Night and do "whatever". It's not as bad a cd as everyone makes it out to be. Certainly worth having.

I have had the album for years. After American Idol, I told my cousin that Sandy's Song has haunted me and I wanted to it be at my wedding. 47 now and still it hasn't happened. My cousin ordered it for me as I have looked in every music store for years, including Nashville. I am an English teacher and Dolly's words (poetry) are the best they are!!! I love all music, but Dolly's lyrics are beyond belief. Always have been, for over 20 years. She is up there with McCartney/Lennon on songs and lyrics. I have all her earlier albums. Dolly rocks and all her songs are beyond belief. "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas"??? Awesome musical. Sorry, Whitney, "I Will Always Love You" will always be Dolly's. I must admit that I have Dolly's TV show on VHS...recorded and labled even. Sorry.

I can't wait to hear Sandy's Song that my cousin got me. It doesn't matter. Dolly is the best. She is comfort and security and everything that goes with that. Thank you for putting her where she belongs.

Yes, you will hear from me again. Take care, Mandi

Exists one of Ms. Parton's best performances ever: "Starting Over Again," a track from the 1980 Dolly, Dolly, Dolly album, is cowritten by Donna Summer and hubby Bruce Sudano. It is supposedly an autobiographical tune about Mr. Sudano's parents divorce.

If anyone doubts Ms. Parton's skills as a singer and actress, listen to this performance and you will be left in tears. A number 1 country/36 pop song, it is one of the best tracks she ever made and one wonders if she ever performs it live in concert.

You can also find Summer singing the song on the "Tonight Show" on You Tube. She has never recorded it.

I strongly recommend fans finding and listening to this track and you will be blown away.

I have been a Dolly fan since the late 70's and was ecstatic to find these earlier albums released on CD. If you are a true Dolly fan you'll love these old songs.....Don't miss out.

"Great Balls of Fire" has always been my favorite Dolly album, and "Dolly,Dolly, Dolly" shows her ability to cross over into pop music with ease. This cd is a must have for any Dolly fan.

Two of Dolly's long lost (and poppiest) albums finally make it onto CD. The 2 on 1 thing is a great deal as both albums ran under 35 minutes and I hope there are many more to follow. More importantly, the remastering is excellent and the sleeve notes include the front and back covers of both albums along with informative essays.

As I said, there are many Parton albums that have yet to see a CD release which is quite disgraceful and I really hope that along with the 3 UK 2 on 1's and the recent reissues in the States of 'Jolene' and 'Coat Of Many Colours' will come much more of Dolly's early 70's to mid-80's work.

Can I have a remaster of 'Here You Come Again', please. I missed the Buddha late 90's version!
