5.0 out of 5 stars SMOKIN` DOLLY, 14 May 2014
By 
This review is from: Blue Smoke (Audio CD)
12 tracks featuring duets with Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson on this latest release from Dolly to coincide with her current World Tour.

The CD begins with a rip-roaring title track, full of choo-choos and woo-woos (other appropriate train noises are available), leaving you somewhat breathless. Fortunately the next track, "Unlikely Angel", is one of those ballads that only Dolly can sing so well. Next we have a cover version of the old Bob Dylan classic, "Don`t Think Twice". Track number 4, the best, in my opinion, is the heartfelt duet with Kenny Rogers, "You Can`t Make Old Friends", Recently On Radio 2, Dolly did a 2 hour show entitled `Dollys` Jukebox`, where she stated that this song was recorded on the thirtieth anniversary of "Islands In The Stream". This is followed by another sad longing type song "Home", not to be confused with a Jim Reeves song with the same name. This track will be the first single from the CD.

Strangely, Dolly looks at the next song, "Banks Of The Ohio", with a mans perspective, as opposed to the version by Olivia Newton-John. Still she does it justice, as you would expect. Followed by a raucous covering of "Lay Your Hands On Me". It seems that everybody and their uncle joined in. "Miss You-Miss Me" is a strange tug-of-love story of a child caught in the middle of warring parents, beautifully performed. "If I Had Wings", sensitively sung, follows. The next track, sung partly in French, and entitled, "Lover Du Jour", is an amusing track (listen out for Dollys comments at the end). Willie Nelson accompanies Dolly on the penultimate track, "From Here To The Moon And Back". It is about enduring love, not the Space Race as I had imagined. Finally, "Try", another uplifting song, penned by Dolly herself.

Yes an all-round cracker from `The First Lady Of Country Music`. All Dolly Parton fans probably have this already. If you are not a fan, try it, you will like it, I`m sure.

On the UK release there is also a second CD of `Greatest Hits`, making it all the more worthwhile.
