'CERTAINLY ONE OF THE BEST 'DOLLY' ALBUMS AVAILABLE',
This review is from: Ultimate Dolly Parton (Audio CD)
'Dolly's' career started way back in the sixties gaining momentum with
several entries in the U.S Country Charts.
She certainly is one of todays great vocal-talents who also turned her
hand to writing many well known songs, perhaps among the best known
of these being 'Jolene' (Which is the number that first caught my attention
back in 1973) among some of the other numbers she penned - 'I Will Always
Love You' (Which was a gigantic hit for 'Whitney Houstan' of course) she
also penned '9-5' and 'Coat of Many Colours' among the many.
'Dolly' is indeed a great talent, we remember so many of the 'Lady's songs
down the years, 'Dolly' had many. many Hits mainly in 'Canada' and the U.S
however surprisingly, even though so many of us can name many of her
numbers, here in the U.K she only achieved two Top Ten Singles those
being the earlier mentioned 'Jolene' (1973 Chart 7) and the duet with the
great 'Kenny Rogers' (written by the 'Gibb' brothers) 'Islands in the Stream'
(1983 Chart 7)
She of course did have a measure of success with some of her 'Album' releases,
and did achieve some lower -order entries in the singles Chart in the U.K.
If I'd have been asked to name some of her hits, off the top-of-my-head so to
speak,I'd almost certainly have mentioned more than she actually had.
'Dolly' a talented artist, This I believe, is a great reflection of her best
known works down the years, a great item to own for sure.
