Country music fans long ago learned that it's a serious mistake to confuse Dolly Parton's over-the-top style with her musical substance. For beneath the flamboyant wigs, rhinestone-studded get-ups, hour-glass figure and self-deprecating humor is one of the most gifted songwriters and loveliest of voices of the past few decades.

Jolene, recorded in 1972 and '73 in Nashville with that musical mecca's finest session musicians, if filled not only with richly tuneful love songs, but a pair of numbers - "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You" - that topped the country chart. (Dolly has had an incredible 24 Number One country hits.) "I Will Always Love You" is a perfect example of how a great songwriter can bring universality to a specific event, in this case the professional break-up of Dolly and her longtime duet partner Porter Wagoner, who contributed to this set the aching "Lonely Comin' Down."

In 1992 Whitney Houston made "I will Always Love You" an international pop hit, and, in the process, cemeneted it as one of Dolly's signatures. In the years since Jolene, Dolly herself has become a global superstar, not just in music but in the movies and as a chief of her own entertainment empire. This album, now containing four previously unreleased bonus tracks, had more than a little to do with elevating her to the next level of stardom. And the next.

Bonus tracks:-
Cracker Jack
Another Woman's Man
Barbara On Your Mind
Last Night's Lovin'

Format: Audio CD
To coincide with Dolly's European tour of 2007, there were several CD releases including yet another best of compilation and three twofers (of which this is one) featuring six albums, five of which had never been released on CD while the other had only briefly been available in the early days of CD. Three of Dolly's older albums were also released with bonus tracks (of which this is one) although only the bonus tracks were new to CD, the main albums having already been made available on earlier releases.

The basic Jolene album as originally released had ten tracks, all of a high quality. Two of them became number one country hits for Dolly before eventually becoming internationally famous. The first was the title track, which became a British top ten hit in 1976. Dolly's music has been popular in Britain ever since, and may now be more so than in her homeland, although her popularity isn't reflected in raw chart statistics. Many singers have covered Jolene over the years since, the first major cover being by Olivia Newton-John, who included it on her 1976 album, Come on over.

The other famous song on Dolly's Jolene album is, of course, I will always love you, though it took much longer to achieve international acclaim. Linda Ronstadt was the first major artist to cover it when she included it on her 1975 album, Prisoner in disguise. Dolly re-recorded the song for her 1982 movie, Best little chicken house in Texas (yes, I know it wasn't a chicken house), whereupon the new version repeated the success of the original by becoming a number one country hit. International success eluded the song until Whitney Houston made it into a worldwide pop hit. Then Dolly had another country hit with the song, this time as a duet with Vince Gill, though it didn't make the top ten.
