Editorial Reviews

2007 compilation from the enormously gifted and talented singer/songwriter, the most successful female artist in Country Music history. From the '60s to the millennium, Dolly has been there combining the bluegrass influences of her youth with the ever-evolving 'modern' sounds of Country & Western. Her performances are always stunning, whether she is accompanied by a small acoustic group or an orchestra. Not only is she an extraordinarily emotive vocalist, she's also an experienced musician and fantastic songwriter (most of her hits were self-penned). 20 tracks including '9 To 5', 'I Will Always Love You', 'Jolene', 'Here You Come Again', 'Coat Of Many Colors', 'Islands In The Stream' (with Kenny Rogers) and many more. Sony/BMG.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous! July 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Dolly is the greatest country singer ever! This CD contains her very best and coupled with the second volume (The Very Best Of Dolly Parton Volume 2) you have a fantastic collection of wonderful music. By all means, go ahead and buy them both (like I did)! You will not regret this purchase. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Dolly's music May 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
To coincide with Dolly's European tour of 2007, there were several CD releases including yet another best of compilation (this album) and three twofers featuring six albums, five of which had never been released on CD while the other had only briefly been available in the early days of CD. Three of Dolly's older albums were also released with bonus tracks although only the bonus tracks were new to CD, the main albums having already been made available on earlier releases. Despite the fact that all the tracks here have been released many times before, this compilation was hugely successful. There are still plenty of people out there who don't own any of Dolly's music and this CD provides such people with most of the tracks that they're likely to be familiar with.

Dolly's two British top ten hits (Jolene, Islands in the stream) are both here, along with the Dolly song made even more famous by Whitney Houston (I will always love you) and Dolly's major American pop hits (9 to 5, Here you come again). Another song that Brits might recognize even if they don't normally listen to Dolly's music is the theme to the old TV series Butterflies (Love is like a butterfly), although Dolly`s own version wasn`t actually used for the theme - Clare Torrey recorded a cover of it for the purpose. Dolly's cover of an old Drifters classic (Save the last dance for me) is often included on compilations of her music, as it is here, because it was successful in the American country charts, but it sounds even further removed from country music than the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars HEARTBREAK EXPRESS & GREAT PRETENDER Still not on CD??? February 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Well, all I can say is AVERAGE... I am amazed at how deep we can pull songs from her catalog to make a fast buck for a compilation, but we still have yet to see "Heartbreak Express" 1982 or "The Great Pretender" 1984 both on RCA to be released onto c.d. WHY ARE WE STILL WAITING???

There are a few great gems on this particular collection that the avid fan will go for, and the price is fair. However, there are over 20 compilations on the market, and I'm being kind by leaving it at 20... Do we really need another compilation? Or even worse... Do we need to keep putting on c.d. 9 To 5 and Odd Jobs???

I think someone needs to step up to the plate and give Dolly and the fans her complete catalog on c.d. and stop putting out meaningless compilations with newer photos, and release Heartbreak Express & The Great Pretender!!! It would also make the music industry look like they know what they are doing for the first time in MANY years...

My German exchange student purchased this for her father for Christmas, he loved it. Funny thing is is that it was manufactured in Germany and was sent back to Germany as a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starting point for new listeners January 4, 2014
By wbr
Format:Audio CD
This 1-disc collection is a great starting point for new listeners of Dolly's music. Some of the big hits are included here, as well as lesser-know songs spanning from 1967 to 1993. For collectors: there is also a Dutch version, including the song You Are, which was Dolly's biggest hit in The Netherlands.

Just what you would expect of the one and only Dolly.

5.0 out of 5 stars For true Dolly fans August 4, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To some she is a caricature. To true country fans she is one of the most talented female vocalists out there. Her music can inspire and also bring you to tears
