I am a huge Mindy Smith fan and her cover of "Jolene" is the best I've ever heard (according to the liner notes from Mindy's album "One Moment More," Dolly feels the same way), but I have to say that my favorite cut on this c.d. is "Dagger Through the Heart" sung by Sinead O'Connor. I agree with the reviewer who wrote that this song alone justifies the cost of the c.d.
After hearing this album, it's hard not to come to the conclusion that Dolly Parton is one of the greatest songwriters still working today. In the way she tells a compelling story in a song, and very much in her own way, she can hold her own with such songwriting genuises as Leonard Cohen, John Prine, Tom Waits, and Joni Mitchell.
