I think she should come back and do something New!!
I brought Dolly Partons Greatest Hits back in 1999 The Album i have is a 2x Disc version With the same songs and same listings in the exact same track listing order has these 2 seperate Albums!! Why it has been Re-released has two seperate Volumes is beyond me, Especially when the version i have is still avalible to buy.
I have given this a 4 Star if it was a New greatest hits it would have got a 5 Star, However it isn't. And plus it's not Dolly's thought i blame the record company!!! :-)
THE VERY BEST OF DOLLY PARTON AND IT REALLY IS ALL MY FAVOURITES AND SOME. GOOD PRICE AND WELL WORTH THE MONEY I THINK SHE JUST GETS BETTER WITH AGE. A VERY GOOD SELECTION OF HER BEST SONGS
These are the country music superstar's secondary hits, and indeed, the compilers have decided to focus more on her country-and-western material rather than the pop music she delivered for the majority of the 1980s. Some of these lesser-celebrated songs are amongst my Parton favourites, and I regard them as much better than the likes of 'Jolene', '9 to 5', and 'Here You Go Again', which you can obviously find on the earlier volume, and indeed, on countless other CDs.
What Parton really is, is an incredible songwriter, who excels in penning sad, clever, and bitter-sweet songs which deal with death and heartbreak.Two of her very best are, the truly haunting 'Down From Dover' (update: covered to perfection by Marianne Faithfull on her 2009 album 'Easy Come, Easy Go'), and 'Where Beauty Lives in Memory' from her excellent 'New Harvest, First Gathering' album. These, along with her five star interpretation of Elvis' 'In The Ghetto', and her early '90s classic 'Eagle When She Flies', are reason enough to buy this album.
Dolly Parton is a great, but alas, her voice tends to grate on me after a while, so I could never been an avid fan. Having said that, all what she has achieved is amazing, and The Very Best of Dolly Parton, Vol. 2' offers fans of the first volume, to chance to discover deeper cuts in her vast discography.
