Biography

Biography by David Vinopal

It's difficult to find a country performer who has moved from country roots to international fame more successfully than Dolly Parton. Her autobiographical single "Coat of Many Colors" shows the poverty of growing up one of 12 children on a run-down farm in Locust Ridge, TN. At 12 years old she was appearing on Knoxville television; at 13 she was ... Read more in Amazon's Dolly Parton Store

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Dolly�s best Hollywood albums 6 May 2004
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is almost a concept album, based around the problems of working people. It's difficult to see where But you know I love you (a cover of a song that was originally a hit for Kenny Rogers and the first edition) fits the concept, so that's why I say almost.
The album yielded two number one country hits - 9 to 5 and But you know I love you - with 9 to 5 giving Dolly her first (and only solo) American number one pop hit. Sadly, it barely scraped into the top 50 in Britain. Her dramatic cover of House of the rising sun made the country top 20, although this particular track has no country credentials whatsoever - it is brilliant, but it is pure pop.
Country fans will particularly enjoy Detroit city and Deportee. Detroit city began life as a country hit for Bobby Bare and became an international pop hit for Tom Jones. Deportee is a cover of a Woody Guthrie song about a plane crash.
Although more pop than country, I particularly enjoy Hash a bye hard times and Sing for the common man. Actually, it's all good stuff here as far as I'm concerned, but you need to like both pop and country to fully appreciate this album.
Among Dolly's Hollywood albums, Here you come again is my favorite, but this one and Real love are both very close behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please do not believe the people who give this CD a bad rap 24 Oct 1999
By J. Jaeger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have loved this album for nearly twenty years and love Dolly...ALL her different types of music! Those who complain it is a commercial sellout, leaving her country roots behind must have had their ears blocked when "Hush-A-Bye-Hardtimes, Poorfolks Town, and Dark as a Dungeon" were playing. How many pop songs begin with: "Come and listen, ye fellows?" This is one of Dolly's best albums, showing a range and diversity with country and pop genres that should be applauded. Just because something is a commercial success doesn't mean it is bad. Sometimes the mass public actually picks a winner, and this winner is the complete album from 1980. Previous CD releases were missing two great tracks! There is not a bad cut on this album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Country and pop from Hollywood Dolly 31 Mar 2009
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In celebration of 9 to 5: The Musical's Broadway debut, RCA/Legacy has reissued Parton's 1980 album with a trio of bonus tracks. Building on the 1977 pop breakthrough, "Here You Come Again," 9 to 5 (as a film, album and single) cemented Parton's draw beyond her core country audience. She'd released Dolly, Dolly, Dolly earlier in the year, and its orchestrated AOL covers freed her to indulge more country sounds here. The 9 to 5 album topped the country chart and the title single topped the country, pop and AC charts. The album's second single, a light-pop cover of the First Edition's "But You Know I Love You" (originally sung by future duet partner Kenny Rogers) also topped the country chart, and a disco cover of "The House of the Rising Sun" made the top twenty.

The hit singles provide a fare representation of the album's variety. Parton's originals include the hopeful, country gospel "Hush-A-Bye Hard Times," the unapologetic portrait "Working Girl," and the homespun values of "Poor Folks Town." The covers are more diverse, including a delicate reading of Woody Guthrie's "Deportee" and a solemn take on Merle Travis' "Dark as a Dungeon." Less successful is the pedestrian Nashville backing given to Mel Tillis' "Detroit City" and Mike Post's badly aging arrangement of "Sing for the Common Man." Yet even when backed by hackneyed keyboards, liquid guitars and by-the-numbers strings, Parton's voice still shines.

The struggles and successes of working people provide the album a theme, but the album never musters the artistic force of Coat of Many Colors, My Tennessee Mountain Home or Jolene. Parton's in excellent voice throughout, but her bid for broader commercial success leaves several tracks uncomfortably laden with pop clichés. Legacy's 2009 reissue adds a previously unreleased session cover of Sly and the Family Stone's "Everyday People," a beat-heavy 2008 house remix of "9 to 5," and a lead vocal-free remix of "9 to 5" that puts you in Dolly's rhinestone-studded high-heeled shoes. Bonuses aside, it's the album's originals and selected covers that make this an essential entry in Parton's catalog. [2009 hyperbolium dot com]

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, but stick with Coat for now. 27 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Buddah is to be applauded for finally (if somewhat slowly) reissuing long out of print Dolly Parton albums with a remastered sound. It is especially gratifying that they are giving equal attention to Parton's more creative country period, and not just limiting it to her more pop oriented material. The pattern seems to be reissue one country album and one pop album simultaneously.
While this album is better than average for her pop period, it decidedly takes a back seat to the magnificent "Coat of Many Colors" album that was reissued along with "9 to 5." There really is no comparing the two albums. "Coat" is a masterpiece of early 70's country, and a sad reminder of how Nashville no longer cares about its roots. By contrast, this album is pleasant and enjoyable, but hardly in the same league as the bulk of Parton's work before about 1977.
2 1/2 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag 10 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
By the time this album was originally released in 1981, Dolly Parton's commercial sellout had long been established. Having abandoned her country roots which had produced some of the finest music of the genre, she was ready for Hollywood and made her film debut in the movie "Nine to Five." An amusing escapist comedy, Parton surprisingly managed to hold her own against Jane Fonda and the truly comicly gifted Lily Tomlin (who ultimately stole the show).
The movie's theme song, which is the center piece of this album was more of the same for the pop sellout that was Dolly at this time, so naturally, with a popular movie behind it, the song was a huge hit and further encouraged Parton to leave her country roots behind. Still, this isn't to say that this album is a total loss. Her version of Woody Guthrie's "Deportees" manages to rescue the album from complete pop sellout status. Hearing Parton's glorious set of pipes surround this heartbreaker of a song pleading for social justice and human dignity is pretty much worth the price of admission, even if the rest of this stuff is a far cry from the jewels she had created a decade before.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Just Got Better! 4 Mar 2010
By James King Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had purshed Dolly's 9-5 and Odd Jobs new in album form. While I still have the original album I no longer have a means to listen to it, having converted many of my albums to digial. I was so happy to find it and be able to buy it in it's CD form. It was like inviteing in an old friend that you had not seen in years. I am happy to have this in my CD collection. If you are a Dolly fan, this is a must have for your collection.
