A Rather Good Collection,
This review is from: Ultimate Dolly Parton (MP3 Music)
This is a very good collection of Dolly's greatest hits. Dolly has a nice, distinctive voice and is an excellent songwriter.
She writte songs that are personal and not cliche.
The ballads are very pretty and have touching and personal lyrics. (I Will Always Love You, Coat of Many Colors, Here You Come Again, Please don't leave me etc.)Islands I The Stream, her duet with Kenny Rogers i also very good and is probably one of my favorite duets.
she is very good at telling a story using a song (Joshua, Jolene, the upbeat Tennesse Homeescik Blues, The Bargain store, and the previously mentioned Coat of Many Colors)
She can also succeed with upbeat, fun songs like 9 to 5 and Why'd You Come In Here Looking Like That.
There isn't really anything dissapointing with this collection. The only can think of is is that between #9 and #14 we are given a few too many lve ballads, though they are still failry good songs.
