The songs are those made famous by Dolly, ie "Joshua", "Coat Of Many Colors", "Jolene", "Love Is Like A Butterfly", "My Tennessee Mountain Home", "The Bargain Store", "Applejack". (After the original recording of this track, Dolly was not satisfied, so she called in everybody that was at hand, be they other artists, technicians and cleaners to sing in the chorus. Listen out for the unscheduled spoken part by Chet Atkins.) Then we have, "The Seeker", "Two Doors Down", "Baby I`m Burnin`", "You`re The Only One", "Here You Come Again", "Islands In The Stream". (Originally intended as a solo track for Kenny Rogers, Dolly was invited in and it became the biggest selling country music track of the year.) We then have "9 To 5", "I Will Always Love You". This original version by Dolly was gentler and more heart-rending than that of Whitney Houston. Another version by Katherine Jenkins, sung in Italian as an aria, was according to Dolly, `The most beautiful thing I have ever heard`.
We then have some tracks which are covers of other artists hits ie. "D I V O R C E" (pre - Tammy Wynette), "The Last Thing On My Mind", "Yours Love", "Just Someone I Used To Know", "In The Ghetto", "The House Of The Rising Sun", "Save The Last Dance For Me" plus 2 tracks with Tammy and Loretta Lynn, "It Was`nt God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" and "Silver Threads And Golden Needles".
From "Dumb Blonde", CD 1 track 1 to "More Where That Came From", CD 3 track 19, we are entertained with a selection ranging from the sad, tragic, heartfelt songs to the uptempo rock ballads. Nothing appears in any way dated as all stand the test of time.
Anyone who has had the privilege of seeing Dolly `live` will tell you that she is a sincere person, despite her often self-deprecating humour, who means what she sings and really feels the emotions of the songs. Let us not forget, however, that she also wears another hat, that of a successful business woman, in her own right. Long may they both reign.
