Format: Audio CD
Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton recorded many excellent albums, but this one is my favorite among them, albeit only marginally. Exactly when the album was recorded, I'm not sure although it would have been in the mid-seventies. The album was not released at the time due to the break-up of the business partnership that the duo had established, but was eventually released in 1980. So much had changed in country music during the intervening years that it already sounded out of place among all the other new releases that year, especially Dolly`s solo album. Those of us who bought it knew that there wasn`t likely to be another new Porter and Dolly album. Although there was eventually some talk of them getting together again, nothing came of it.

The album opens with a cover of Making plans, a song that dates back to the fifties, but the version here made number two on the country charts and the record that kept it off the number one spot was Dolly's solo cover of Old flames can't hold a handle to you, a song that Joe Sun had taken into the top twenty of the country charts just two years earlier. (That track is from Dolly's solo album released the same year, but ironically, it seems out of place and would be more at home here.)

The next track, If you go I'll follow you, was the only other single taken from the album and made number twelve on the country charts. Great as these songs are, they don't stand out from the others as the quality is sustained throughout. Even the song about an ill-fated child (Little David's harp) is fine by me. I'm not a huge fan of these songs that feature on many of Porter and Dolly's duet albums, but this is one of the better ones.

I can't actually review the pictured CD (Porter & Dolly - album released in 1980) because it's not the disc that I received when I tried to order this album. Unless I'm mistaken, the track listing on this item is not the tracks that actually appear on the album pictured. But it's the pictured album that I was wishing to buy. As it is, I got sent another album (The Essential Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton) which doesn't include the tracks listed in this product page either.

The long and short of it is that this listing is a bit of a shambles. Pictured album is not the one with the tracks listed.

So this is not a review of the actual album - it's just a heads up to say that if you're lucky you MIGHT get sent the disc you actually want to order, but if you're less lucky you will get sent another item. :/
