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

Format:Audio CD
A personal anecdote to start off: when I was 12, in the summer of 1978, my family was visiting some relatives in southern Ohio - a pretty "countryish" region and my aunt and uncle were very country. Country cooking, country clothes, country music. My dad hates country music and for that matter just about all music since Bing Crosby retired. I have this powerful memory of us all driving - in my uncle's car - and Dolly's song "Here You Come Again", a recent big hit, coming on the radio, and my dad just turning the volume down to nothing without asking my uncle. That song haunted me for years, not really knowing country music or Dolly Parton. When I finally got into collecting CDs, I had to get that song, and this is the collection I chose.

And it's a stunner. 30 songs and not a misfire among them, although I'm not as big a fan of the poppier stuff from the mid 70s through the 80s (except for the one I just mentioned) as I am of the earlier work, much of which falls into the "why did I love him, he was so bad to me, but now he's gone and I'm stronger for it" category. For me it's Dolly's righteous anger as the woman scorned which has always been the most powerful part of her musical personality; as sweet as the voice and personality and smile are, you have to have that toughness underneath or it would all seem gooey saccharine. And boy there's plenty of toughness there.

One thing to note for others who, like me, are not thoroughly familiar with Ms. Parton's work: all of these are original studio recordings. Dolly has redone some of these songs and in most of the cases that I've heard - "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" stands out especially - the newer versions pale in comparison with these originals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dolly: the rca years March 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of songs from Dolly Parton, during her years with RCA. The songs " Heartbreaker, " Single Women", "Making Plans", and "Appalachian Memories" are standouts. The duet with Porter Wagoner "Making Plans" prompted me to also purchase "Porter & Dolly" cd because of my love of their duet. Dolly is at her best, in my oppinion, singing ballads, and this cd showcases that talent excedingly well. God love Dolly, she is truly one of a kind.

3.0 out of 5 stars not really a box set April 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD
When this came out it was packaged as a box set. But it's only two cd with 15 songs each. Not really what I would call a box set. But the songs are what it it's all about and these tow cd's have got the songs. It starts off with a song called The Letter. Which is really just a letter Dolly writing home to let everybody know she made it to Nashville. She does a killer version of Muleskinner Blues. Then there is a few more lesser known songs. Then it gets into mostly hits. Coat Of Many Colors and Jolene were probably her two biggest hits from this point of her career. And she ends the first cd with I Will Allways Love You.
The 2nd cd continues with her country hits The Seeker and Love Is Like A Butterfly which I always liked but I thought it was always overshadowed by Jolene. The Bargain Store was her last country song before she started to go for the more pop songs. Light Of A Clear Blue Morning is another great song. But not near as big as the follow up Here You Come Again which turned out to be the song she was looking for, for a bigger audience.
Iwas glad they put Hard Candy Christmas on here. It was originally on her Greatest Hits but then they replaced it with Islands In The Stream which is also on here. Baby I'm Burning is a straight ahead pop song. Almost rock. Heartbreaker and Tennesee Homesick Blues are the last songs on the second cd.
These are the best country, pop, and everything else Dolly had done up to this point in her career. And the years she spent on RCA I think were her best.
