Format: Audio CD
In the nineties, after Dolly parted company with Columbia, she recorded one album for the short-lived Rising Tide label (Treasures) and one album for MCA (Hungry again) before teaming up with Sugar Hill for a series of immensely successful albums beginning with Grass id blue. This compilation contains nine of the eleven tracks from Treasures together with all twelve from Hungry again, but the tracks have been jumbled up a bit - tracks 1 to 5, 7, 9, 10 and 12 are from Treasures while 6, 8, 11 and 13 to 21 are from Hungry again, but I'll review the tracks based on their original albums.
By the time Dolly recorded Treasures, her new singles were no longer being played on radio, so she took the opportunity to record covers of some of her favorite songs. With a star-studded cast of guests, the results are impressive.
On Peace train (a Cat Stevens song), Dolly is backed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Some of Dolly's fans may feel that the arrangement is a little over the top, but anybody who has listened to LBM's own music (as I have) will appreciate it. The other tracks from Treasures sound more typical of Dolly's music, including excellent covers of Today I started loving you again (the often-covered Merle Haggard song that provided Sammi Smith with a top ten American country hit in the seventies), Before the next teardrop falls (Freddy Fender), Behind closed doors (Charlie Rich), Don't let me cross over (Carl and Pearl Butler), Satin sheets (Jeanne Pruett) and For the good times (Kris Kristofferson).

After the goldrush (a Neil Young song) was recorded by Dolly with Linda and Emmylou for their second Trio album, but after a decision was taken not to release it, Dolly recorded a solo version and included it on this album.

I think that the message from Pete the Music Fan wasn't quite clear: This is no typical "Best of" sampler. Look elsewhere if you want that. Except for two omitted songs that didn't fit the single CD format, this is a twofer of Hungry again (in its entirety, although in mixed playing order) and 9 of 11 songs from Treasures. Hungry Again (from 1998) is the real treasure here, Dolly's return to her roots as Nashville's premier songwriter and singer. If you merely see the tracks from Treasures (1996), a covers and collaborations album with traditional country, as abundant bonus material, then you still have a must buy proposition.

Most Dolly Parton albums of previously released material contain the usual 'hits'. I bought this collection because most of the sings I didn't know and aren't on the half dozen or so other collections I have. On this CD Dolly is still the same sweet-voiced, absolutely spot-on-the-note singer we know and love.
