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

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine old-style country music 31 Aug 2003
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This excellent compilation includes a substantial number of Dolly's greatest hits and memorable album tracks, although it excludes the duets with Porter Wagoner, some of her lesser hits and her later bluegrass excursions. It demonstrates her versatility in its great variety of styles, from wonderful weepy ballads like We Used To and I Will Always Love You to uptempo tracks like Jolene, the hit from the movie 9 to 5 and her 1978 nod to disco, Baby I'm Burnin'. My favourites include the lovely Love Is Like A Butterfly and the classics made famous by others: Harper Valley P.T.A and D-I-V-O-R-CE, both of them great story songs. Parton has made such a spectacular contribution to country music that no Best Of can easily claim to contain her greatest work, but this album does a fair job of displaying her soulful voice and some of her timeless songs.

I have never really been into country music,as a 25 year old i dont suppose i was ever interested,but that was untill i heard this cd,whatever mood you are in,it fits your mood to a tee.Its a nice cd to play in the car and i put it on before going out..fantastic...all the songs have an emotional attachment in one way or another...a lot of the songs are from the heart for each person to interpert to their own tales. dolly's songs are mainly in a story format,leaving them the perfect songs to listern to when on your own........Well worth buying!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dolly 30 Sep 2003
By BD
Format:Audio CD
Dolly does it again! A great album that includes all her best hits, such as Jolene (why do all her albums have this as the first song?), Harper Valley PTA, Here you come again etc. This album is another credit to Dolly's talent and her longevity as the leading lady of Country Music. Long may she reign!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy 18 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes, I am pleased with The Best of Dolly Parton CD. No CD has all the songs the buyer wishes was on the CD, or the ones that he/she especially likes. It is something we have to accept--tastes are individual. And many times the CD you buy--depending on when it was produced--will have some of the hits, but perhaps not the later hits. The ideal situation would be for the producers to really, and honestly, include the 18 or 20 top hits of the performer, based on total worldwide sales, without padding the CD with songs that were not so popular; but, that is not going to happen--it wouldn't be as profitable!
