5.0 out of 5 stars Quality music that was largely ignored, 20 Jan 2005

This review is from: Something Special (Audio CD)
Dolly had already lost her place on the playlists of American country radio stations when she recorded this album so it was no surprise that the only significant country hit was yet another revival of I will always love you, this version being a duet with Vince Gill, Vince was hot at the time and any single with his name on it was inevitably a big hit. Apart from that song, Dolly also revived two of her other seventies classics - Jolene and The seeker - updating them nicely for the nineties.
The set opens with Crippled bird, a very sad song about a jilted woman. The title track is a much more cheerful mid-tempo ballad and would surely have been a big hit if the radio stations were interested in Dolly's music. Dolly returns to the jilted woman theme in Change, but this song is not as sad as Crippled bird - it is more reflective than sad. After I will always love you (a very sad song), Dolly cheers up with memories of a Green-eyed boy and a song about temptation, Speaking of the devil.
Between Jolene and The seeker is yet another sad song, No good way of saying goodbye. The set ends with Teach me to trust, in which Dolly worries about her man's fidelity.
Steve Buckingham co-produced the album with Dolly and both of them did a wonderful job. This is a wonderful album deserving of its place in any collection of Dolly music.

As a Dolly Parton fan, I would have nothing but good to say about her. Another good mix from a brilliant diva, keep the music coming Dolly.
