4.0 out of 5 stars Music All Good, Odd Album Selection 23 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of Dolly's music and don't already own these albums, then do not hesitate to buy. The album selection is a trifle odd though, it includes four solo Dolly albums: Rainbow (1987), White Limozeen (1989), Eagle When She Flies (1991) and Something Special (1995). This set misses out the album 'Slow Dancing with the Moon' Dolly's solo outing from 1993 and opts for 'Honky Tonk Angels', which is, as wikipedia puts it 'an album historically teaming country legends Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette.' So essentially they sing on tracks together. A bit like 'Trio' from 1987 (released in the March before 'Rainbow').

Rainbow: 3/5 - This is not a country album, this is very much 80s pop with Dolly's voice set to it. She wrote none of the songs on this albums, and as a result of thatit is not many people's favourite. I went into it with this information in mind, and to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised by how good an album it was. Choice tracks for me were 'Dump the Dude', 'The River Unbound', 'Could I Have Your Autograph'. Coat of Many Colours it ain't, but good, fun 80s pop it is!

White Limozeen: 5/5 - From the opening bars of 'Time for Me to Fly', this has Dolly's stamp all over it. Country through and through. Rainbow was a commercial failure (despite it being quite good really), so the pop was ditched, and she hasn't really returned to it since. But that's no trouble, since this is one of the best albums of her career. 'Why'd You Come In Here Lookin' Like That' should be familiar to anyone who has owned a greatest hits or compilation - and a greatest hit it is! Cheeky and witty, this bouncy number is the stand out track Other choice trakcs include 'White Limozeen'. 'Yellow Roses', 'Wait 'Til I Get You Home' and melodramatic biblical epic 'He's Alive'.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A Dolly Parton Goldmine!" 13 Aug 2011
By Terrance Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For fans of Dolly Parton's who have never owned any of the five CD's in this collection, or if your like me and will buy anything on Miss Parton, this is truely a superb opportunity to own the best work of Dolly's during her Columbia recording days which took place between 1987-1995. The CD's are housed in individual cardboard cases and look beautiful.

First up is the very rare release of Dolly's first Columbia album, "Rainbow" (1987). Regarded by many as Dolly's worst record it is still highly sought after by record collectors as this is the first time "Rainbow" has seen a rerelease since its inception. Only going as high as #18 on the Country Albums Chart, the record failed to produce any hits, but the Dolly-penned "More Than I Can Say" is beautiful and her duet with Smoky Robinson, "I Know You By Heart", is fun.

Secondly, "White Limozeen" (1989) brought Dolly back on top. More country than "Rainbow", "White Limozeen" went to #3 country, sold 500,000 copies going Gold, and produced the #1 songs "Yellow Roses" and "Why'd You Come In Here Lookin' Like That?". The gospel flavoured "He's Alive" is also included.

Next is Dolly's last #1 album to date, "Eagle When She Flies" from 1991. It features the #1 duet with Ricky Van Shelton, "Rockin' Years", "Silver and Gold", and the title track originally written by Dolly for her movie "Steel Magnolias".

The fourth album is by Dolly and two of her contemporaries, women who came to Nashville around the same time Dolly did in the early sixties, Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. "Honky Tonk Angels" went to #6, went Gold, and is highly regarded by many in the country music industry as being one of the best records of all-time.

Lastly, Dolly's last studio album for Columbia is included, "Something Special" (1995). This features her beautiful duet of "I Will Always Love You" with Vince Gill (garnering them the 1996 CMA Vocal Event of the Year Award), as well as her new recordings of "Jolene" and "The Seeker". Despite going all the way to #10 on the charts Columbia decided to drop Dolly from the label making this the first time in nearly 30 years Dolly was without a major record label.

The other Columbia Dolly records not included in this set are her 1990 Christmas album, "Home For Christmas", 1993's "Slow Dancing With The Moon", and her live album "Heartsongs" (1994).
