Everything you have ever wanted in a Dolly Parton Collection going from her very old songs to all of her hits. The best 3CD collection I have ever bought. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars ULTIMATE...NOT YET ANYWAY 9 Dec 2013
By ROBIN
Verified Purchase
A 3 CD collection consisting of 55 tracks recorded between 1966 and 1994. Mostly self-penned and sung without the technical wizardry so prevalent with artists today.

The songs are those made famous by Dolly, ie "Joshua", "Coat Of Many Colors", "Jolene", "Love Is Like A Butterfly", "My Tennessee Mountain Home", "The Bargain Store", "Applejack". (After the original recording of this track, Dolly was not satisfied, so she called in everybody that was at hand, be they other artists, technicians and cleaners to sing in the chorus. Listen out for the unscheduled spoken part by Chet Atkins.) Then we have, "The Seeker", "Two Doors Down", "Baby I`m Burnin`", "You`re The Only One", "Here You Come Again", "Islands In The Stream". (Originally intended as a solo track for Kenny Rogers, Dolly was invited in and it became the biggest selling country music track of the year.) We then have "9 To 5", "I Will Always Love You". This original version by Dolly was gentler and more heart-rending than that of Whitney Houston. Another version by Katherine Jenkins, sung in Italian as an aria, was according to Dolly, `The most beautiful thing I have ever heard`.

We then have some tracks which are covers of other artists hits ie. "D I V O R C E" (pre - Tammy Wynette), "The Last Thing On My Mind", "Yours Love", "Just Someone I Used To Know", "In The Ghetto", "The House Of The Rising Sun", "Save The Last Dance For Me" plus 2 tracks with Tammy and Loretta Lynn, "It Was`nt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" and "Silver Threads And Golden Needles".

From "Dumb Blonde", CD 1 track 1 to "More Where That Came From", CD 3 track 19, we are entertained with a selection ranging from the sad, tragic, heartfelt songs to the uptempo rock ballads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dolly mixture 25 Aug 2014
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Easy to take Dolly Parton for granted, she's been one of the most high-profile country singers for decades now, but that should never hide the fact that she's still one of the best.
Pretty much my only quibble with this 3-CD extravaganza is that the opportunity to fill all three discs to the brim has not been grasped. The average timing for each disc is around an hour. No matter, you get enough DP for the low price.
Most of what is here is vintage Dolly, with only one or two tracks on CD1 that I could have lived without.
The big hits are here: the timelessly stunning bittersweet song Jolene, her still unimprovable original version of I Will Always Love You, the irrepressible 9 To 5, her signature song Coat Of Many Colors, the lovely Tennessee Mountain Home, Here You Come Again, Working Girl, as well as duets with early musical partner Porter Wagoner, Ricky Van Shelton and, naturally, Kenny Rogers on Islands in the Stream. There are also two very welcome songs with Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn.
Few sing a ballad as affectingly as Dolly, and there are plenty of those here, along with all kinds of country, from backwoods simplicity to Nashville glitz to versions of old blues numbers (House of the Rising Sun) and pop-soul (a superb reinvention of the Drifters' Save the Last Dance For Me). On each song she sounds like she means every word.
Perhaps my favourite of the three splendid discs is the middle one - and it really is 'in the middle' of this foldout digipak compilation. It has such great songs as Two Doors Down, I Really Got The Feeling, Touch Your Woman, We Used To, You`re the Only One, My Blue Tears, and Lonely Comin' Down.
