Product Description

Recorded LIVE at the Dollywood Theater (Pigeon Forge, TN) on December 12th & 13th, 2002, this concert was part of Dolly's Halos & Horns tour. It was her first national tour in more than 10 years! Featuring songs from her critically-lauded back-to-her-roots albums The Grass Is Blue, Little Sparrow, & Halos & Horns, this wonderfully documented performance also contains a healthy helping of some of her all-time classic hits! Featuring her hand-picked back-up band, the Blue-niques, this concert experience reveals to all who couldn't get into her sold-out 13-city tour of 2002 the absolute sheer joy & fun of the legendary Dolly Parton's live act.

There isn't a more ebullient live performer in all of popular music than Dolly Parton, as this chatty concert recording attests. Though Parton had been on hiatus from touring for a decade, she reconnects here with an audience that extends from country traditionalists to drag queens (to whom she dedicates her classic "Jolene"). Banjo and fiddle drive the acoustic arrangements and bluegrass harmonies highlight the choruses as Parton surveys a career-spanning selection of material on this two-disc set, applying her signature vocal quaver to hits from "Coat of Many Colors" to "9 to 5" and "I Will Always Love You." The concert extends her musical terrain to Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush," and a breathy rendition of Bread's "If," while an a cappella medley renews the likes of "Islands in the Stream" and "Here You Come Again." Parton's in fine voice throughout and even better spirits, spending almost as much time bantering with the crowd as she does singing. Where many live recordings are little more than songs with applause, this is the full Dolly. --Don McLeese

First of all, I'm NOT a Country Music fan, but I can't help but love Dolly Parton. You'll hear why if you buy this 2-disc set.

Dolly is not only a great singer and performer, but a master lyricist and storyteller. Her incredible commentary between songs explains her thoughts and you really get a feel of why she wrote that song. Her simple grace is amazing. She loves to entertain and that shows loud and clear in this set. When she talks about her childhood, her family and her home on the foot of the Smokey Mountains, she really shows why she is an icon.

I did shed of couple of unexpected tears while this was playing. "My Tennessee Mountain Home", "Smokey Mountain Memories" and "Coat of Many Colors" are killers. They draw such emotion and with a lyric like "..so we hitched our station wagon to a star", it's a wonder there was a dry eye in the house.

I'm so proud to own this collection. Buy it and I think you'll see why.

I always wonder how good any live album actually will be. I assumed Dolly would deliver, but you just don't know for sure. This live album is fun to listen to...almost more for what she says in between the songs than the actual songs themselves. I did say "almost"--the song material is exceptional and, for the most part, from her bluegrass trilogy, "The Grass is Blue," "Little Sparrow" and "Halos and Horns." Of course, her standards are included as well, so you get a little of the old Dolly and the new and improved Dolly, too. This cd is bluegrass heavy, and with that mountain voice, I could listen to Dolly sing it all day long. I started listening in '78, but her work in the last 5 years is some of her finest and my favorite. She is brilliant as a bluegrass musician. Dolly and bluegrass go together like biscuits and gravy. My favorite cut is #4 "Mountain Angel." The song is great, but the banter at the end is even better. With all the jokes and storytelling and her heartfelt sincerity, it's almost just like being there.

This album is a perfect example of what you will hear at a Dolly concert. None of Dolly's interaction with the audience has been removed for the discs, so you hear her talking in between songs! If you like this CD, there is also a companion DVD so you can enjoy watching the concert as well! Buy this release, I am sure you will enjoy it.

The recording quality is very good. The vocal harmonies are well done. It is a live recording. As for all the chatter between songs... Dolly believes her talking endures her audience to her. I just endure it.

This is Dolly's newest Live album, taken from her Halos and Horns tour in 2002. I only hope they do another live cd for her current tour, Hello I'm Dolly. This is a nice intimate set where Dolly sings mostly her new material, with a few older hits thrown in for good measure. The set is bluegrass heavy, drawing from her past three albums mostly. What makes this enjoyable is not only the music, but the time she takes to talk and interact with the audience. Highlights include "After The Goldrush", "I Will Always Love You", "Mountain Angel", "The Grass Is Blue", "Halos and Horns" and many others. A true testament to the excellent entertainer she is.

Excellent CD! I love Dolly and if you love her too, this is a must have! It has so many awesome songs and the quality is amazing where it was recorded in Dollywood. Dolly is a true entertainer and this album is entertaining from the first song to the last. Dolly is amazing and her LIVE albums are just as awesome as any studio album.

This LP is a rare gem among the country genre. Parton's voice is angelic as is her delivery of these great tunes. Given that Parton has been established for decades, the fact that she composes these gloriously melodic songs is enough to garner this LP 5 stars. As a rule, the LIVE recordings leave so much to be desired in the quality department: Not here. Very impressive music and sound. Parton's voice is NOT over powered in these selections. Parton and all the musicians on this LP are to be thanked for a job well done. Seems so effortless, I'm certain it is not.

I recently Watched "Live and Well" on Direct TV and have since purchased it on CD. Dolly is at the top of her game in this live performance. Surrounded by incredible musicians, Dolly's voice is so clear it's hard to believe she isn't recorded in the studio. I started listening to Dolly Parton in 1975. In her last three blue-grass CD's she has reached new heights, this concert highlights the wave that she is riding. This is a must see and hear collection.
