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

"Porter and Dolly" marks the very first CD release of an original album by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton in North America. Their very first LP "Just Between You and Me" was released in 1995 in Europe on CD and there have been various compilation CD's distributed, but RCA Records has been extremely slow in releasing any of the duos famous albums. Minnie Pearl once called Porter and Dolly the greatest man/woman singing team in the history of country music. This CD shows why!
"Porter and Dolly" has quite a history as an LP. It was the last album the duo ever released in 1980 long after their partnership was over. It was originally to have been put out in 1976, but Dolly's new management team headed by Sandy Gallin convinced RCA to shelve the duet album, citing that its release would hamper the growth of Dolly's new solo career. This didn't sit too well with Porter who would go on to lose royalties as a singer, songwriter, and producer of the album. In 1979 Porter sued Dolly for 3 million dollars citing breach of contract and of blocking the release of this very album. After settling out of court for 1 million dollars, in which Dolly nearly ended up broke, the "Porter and Dolly" album was released. The album shot all the way to number 9 and had 2 singles released; "Making Plans" hit number 2 and "If You Go I'll Follow You" went to number 12, indicating the fans still loved their Porter and Dolly. The album is quite good. Featuring 10 tracks the standout is the second single. Dolly's girlish voice blends perfectly with Porter's manly vocals and the song should have gone higher on the charts.

It was a welcome surprise to find this album from 1980 being released on CD. When you look at the catelog of Porter & Dolly material this is probably not the best album to represent the duo. It is significant as this was to be the last album to be release by this amazing duo. Although this is not the strongest of the duo's material it is still very good and does make you want to hear the albums that came before. Dolly's voice is in excellent shape hear but Porter seems to be struggling to keep up with her as it seems he tried to produce this album to keep up with the times. He just seems to be out of place on many of the songs. He does sound good on both "Making Plans" and "Singing on the Mountain". The rest of the material sounds as though he is playing second fiddle to Dolly. Dolly wrote the majority of songs on this CD and as always her songs are very well written, although clearly her best written songs during this time were saved for her solo projects and this album does suffer a bit from not having the best material possible. All in all I would still recommend this CD. Event though it is not as great as some of their older material it is still very good, and is a good display of country harmony.

The history of this album has been told many times before, it was blocked, it was shelved, when it was finally released in 1980 it stood out as somewhat of an oddity among Dolly's other albums at the time. She had just released a string of pop crossover albums and "Porter & Dolly" recalled her sound that she had left behind five years previously. The album isn't bad at all, but at the time of it's release it had a dated sound just because Dolly had changed her overall sound so much. Listening to the album again 29 years later, it holds up well and fits in nicely with the other Porter and Dolly albums.
My only complaint about this album is the inclusion of the Johnny Russell song, "Making Plans" which has always sounded weird as a duet. In the song both parties are saying how they can't believe the other is leaving and how hard it will be go on without each other. Well, if you both feel this way, why are you "making plans to leave"??? Great song, just doesn't work as a duet. Johnny Russell's original recording is a much better version.
Very slowly Dolly's back catalog is getting released on CD, something that is long overdue, as is a comprehensive boxed set covering her RCA years.

I've been reading some others opinions on this disc......some say it's a very weak,final release from Porter&Dolly....a forced legal release...which the legal part is somewhat true.
I'm just happy this CD is available.It has the rich and lavish Nashville sounds from 1980..with vocals from the mid 1970's.... sounds like the music was put in "after" the vocals(I'm still trying to confiirm that as fact.....but I'm pretty sure it's true)...as was the picture on the cover(Seperate photos sliced to look as though they were still together).But Nontheless....we still have Porter&Dolly!!!.....there are so many subtle hints as to how great they could've been through the '80's and beyond.This almost sounds that "Rockin' Years" w/Ricky Van Shelton should be here......sung by Porter......wouldn't that be Grand???This CD sounds good....really good.....and should not be missed.Great music...and the price.....well.....it's a steal.Don't Hesitate.Buy Now!!!!So,in a nutshell, these are country duets at their very best.............AWESOME!!!!!BUY NOW!!!
