After 40 years of making music, Dolly is making some of the best albums of her career. That's very rare for any artist. Although she didn't pen any of the songs on this album, that in no way detracts from it. This is a great album and a fun listen. Essential to any Dolly collection.
But, above and beyond the toe-tapping, head-bobbing, shoulder shrugging fun with which this album practically drips, I'd like to point out what is truly amazing about Dolly Parton.Read more ›
I never thought that I would enjoy a fast blue grass version of Twelth of Never, but it works. This whole album is "but it works". It shouldn't, but it works. And how the hell did Dolly Parton get Cat Stevens? aka Yusuf Islam? He hasn't played music, to my knowledge for over 20 years, and he was just recently deported out of the country while traveling to the US with his daughter in a case of mistaken identity, still with no apology from Tom Ridge, or the Department of Homeland Security. It's absolutely shocking to me that he agreed to play with Dolly on this. But then again, it's not. Because who is sweeter then Dolly?
And this album is in deed very sweet, and goes right up there now, shocking so, with her Christmas Album with Kenny Rogers ,which is a consistent staple in my house when we decorate the tree each year.
I don't know if the sound bites do this album justice. The songs are very well done, arrangements, musicians, vocals, production, etc.
I'd like to give it 4 and half stars, because of her choice of overly peace loving/campfire songs, but she pulls it off.
Most of these songs are legendary peace anthems from the era, although some are pure mainstream pop (The Twelfth of Never) or slightly eccentric rock like the title track. Dolly at 59 remains a powerhouse singer and most of these songs fit her like a glove.Read more ›

There's no point in having all of these original artists on this record when Dolly's voice has been elevated/emphasized to make the other artists indistinguishable and just heard... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Rygman

As other reviewers have said this is Dolly Parton's third cd of cover songs. It goes to show how she can do any type of music. Or anybody elses songs and make them her own. Read morePublished 11 months ago by john thomas
