This two DVD set has six of the 26 episodes gathered together on two DVDs. The episodes are: (1) Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris (2)Anne Murray & Randy Parton (3) Ronnie Milsap (4) Rod McKuen (5) Kenny Rogers (6) Billy Davis Jr & Marilyn McCoo.
30-year-old Dolly is at the peak of her beauty and radiates the star charisma that had already bewitched the country audience for almost a decade and was about to reach far beyond those borders. Although bubbly and dressed colorfully, she's still a bit more conservative than she would be in Hollywood. The music is great and some of it is live, some of it lip-synching to recordings (mostly her guests) or tracks recorded for the show (like location shoots which are obviously not sung live). Even with just six episodes there is a little song repitition - Dolly sings BAD BAD LEROY BROWN and RHINESTONE COWBOY each twice but the settings are different. Presumably there are only six episodes here due to the high costs and problems with music licensing, one certainly hopes there will be additional DVDS of this show which despite it's brevity was an excellent showcase for the talents and appeal of Dolly Parton. Each episode runs approximately 24 minutes. As extra features, each disc contains a performance by Dolly from THE PORTER WAGONER SHOW, the gospel COMIN' FOR TO CARRY ME HOME and a sensational cover of the Carter Family's FOGGY MOUNTAIN TOP.
That being said, I think this set has something for a lot of people. The guests are an eclectic bunch, but the shows are entertaining. Dolly is adorable, and you can tell that she's on the verge of superstardom while you watch this set. It's just too bad MPI didn't go ahead and release the whole series (since it was just one season).
