Dolly talks about the tracks on her album 'Better Day'

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

By Amazon Customer #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Dolly has always been my favorite since since I started collected records seriously. Even though my first LP was her stunning pop album, Here you come again, I knew her previous records were different. These two ultra-traditional country albums, both from 1971, help to show why Dolly is my favorite.
Chicken every Sunday is a song based on one of Dolly's favorite themes - that being poor doesn't matter, you can still enjoy life as other things are more important. This is also what Coat of many colors is all about.
There are many great story songs on this collection including Joshua and the two mentioned above. Of the others, I particularly like J J Snead, a love gone wrong song in a Bonnie and Clyde type of setting - very dramatic.
Personally, I think these are two of Dolly's finest ever. Dolly has recorded many different types of album since she first recorded pop in 1977, but has always returned to her roots, though never with such stark production values as you find here.
For that reason, at least the two title tracks should already be familiar to you if you are thinking of buying this twofer. If you haven't got any Dolly music from this era, I suggest you first buy a compilation covering this period. If in doubt which one, I recommend Essential volume 2.
If you don't like both Joshua and Coat of mnay colors, you won't like the rest of this twofer, but if you love those two songs, you'll want to play this over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two classics! 4 Jan 2014
By wbr
Format:Audio CD
This release combines Dolly's fabulous Joshua and Coat of Many Colors on one disc - over an hour of listening bliss! Dolly's songwriting was very strong in the early 70's, and the songs on this CD are fine examples. Thus far this is the only place to find the Joshua album in CD quality!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Dolly 15 Sep 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I just received this album from Amazon and started to listen to it and it brought me back to the olden days of Dolly when she was pure country, no pop music mixed in. The album is wonderful from beginning to end and a must have for any Dolly fan. I already own Coat of Many Colors on CD so I brought this purely for The Joshua side of the CD and I was not disappointed. Joshua was Dolly's first number one song and you can tell why by listening to it. One of my most favorite Dolly songs " The Last One to Touch Me." is the second track. Dolly's beautiful voice sings the song to the highest and as the song plays on, your mind invisions an angel. Actually your mind will invision many things listening to this album for many of the songs on the Joshua side are "story songs." Songs that tell little stories and each one with a twist here and there, something Dolly is very famous for(Me and Little Andy and To Daddy) Dolly lets her voice run free on this album and once again the pure magic that is indeed her shines through. I listened to this album and the recent release album that has Jolene and My Tenn. Mountain Home. Four albums that magically blend together and shows why Dolly is the best singer(and not just country) of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dolly 25 Sep 2002
By J. M. Zuurbier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album features Dolly's two classic albums JOSHUA and COAT OF MANY COLORS. To my knowledge this is the first time JOSHUA has been available on CD, making this a must own CD for avid Dolly fans and collectors. These two albums are classics to me because they are Dolly's roots in music, when she was doing the story songs that had a great underlying message, if you look at her songs here a lot of them apply to simple meanings that unite us all. "Joshua" could be interpreted as a beauty and the beast type story, don't let appearances keep you from loving or getting to know someone. "Coat of Many Colors" is the most famous though, a tale of feeling rich in the rags that her mother sewed together in every stitch. This is the album to own if you want songs like that, simply beautiful simple songs from Dolly. Other highlights on this set include "Traveling Man", "My Blue Tears", "Letter To Heaven", "A Better Place To Live", "Here I Am", "The Last One To Touch me" and more. Overall a must have for all Dolly fans, its worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Classic Dolly Parton" 27 Mar 2011
By Terrance Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This collection features two Dolly Parton albums combined together on one CD. Both "Joshua" and "Coat of Many Colors" were released in 1971 while she was one of the biggest female country singers of her day and before she became a world-known superstar. Both of these albums show why Dolly would be known as "The Queen of Country Music" or "Nashville's Biggest Female Singer". These records feature a variety of tracks composed by Dolly herself and contains songs that she is most famous for today.

The first record is "Joshua", an album that went only as high as #16 country and #198 pop, but features her first #1 single, also called "Joshua". That song would entice her to write "Applejack" in 1973 which was about an old mountain hermet she befriended in the Smokies. "Joshua" also featues one of the best songs Dolly ever wrote, "The Last One To Touch Me", a song ultimately recorded by George Jones, Porter Wagoner, and Conway Twitty. Other greats here include "Chicken Every Sunday", Daddies Moonshine Still", and the sad "Letter To Heaven". This CD release is also the only known compact disc release of "Joshua".

Lastly, "Coat of Many Colors", an album "Time" magazine ranked as one of the "100 Greatest Albums of All-Time" in any genre. Hitting #7 on the country charts, the title track is Miss Parton's favorite of all the 3000 songs she has ever written and is highly identified as being one of her signature songs. Other gems include "My Blue Tears", "She Never Met A Man She Didn't Like", and "Early Morning Breeze". This record has been released multiple times on CD and in 2007 was rereleased yet again with four bonus tracks.
5.0 out of 5 stars Two 1971 solo classics 31 Jan 2005
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For an artist of Parton's stature, it's incredible that her towering early achievements are so spottily available on CD. Her brilliant solo albums of the early '70s - the sides waxed shortly after leaving Porter Wagoner and before crossing over to pop stardom - are mostly out of print. This two-fer provides two classic LPs of 1971, "Joshua" and "Coat of Many Colors." The latter has recently been returned to print in the U.S. by Buddha, but the former is only available on this import two-fer.

Throughout both albums, Parton weds gospel power, bluegrass harmonies and x-ray introspection to craft songs about her hard-scrabble Tennessee upbringing. She writes heartbreaking biography ("Coat of Many Colors"), impressionistic memories ("Walls of My Mind") and transforms personal emotions into dramatic fiction ("J.J. Sneed"). Each of these albums stand on their own as perfect examples of Parton's craft, but as a two-fer they provide nearly unimaginable musical riches in a single package.
