Excellent, a true Dolly album!, 24 Oct. 2005
Not being around in the 60s or 70s most songs on album are new to me so I have no previous judge point!
The album compared to Dolly's recent roots albums is quite upbeat and there isn't really any slow sad song on the album, which I have previously liked on other albums!
Highlights are 'Those Were The Days' Jewish sounding and an excellent opening song, great little party tune! 'Where Have All The Flowers Gone' is one of the few slow songs on the album with Dolly going for a more restrained high vocal sound. 'Where Do The Children Play' is probably my 2nd favourite on the album, pure heaven to hear! 'Turn, Turn, Turn' yet again another catchy tune that goes well with the rest of the album! Imagine is out of this world, I never liked the orginal but this version brings a new light to the song!
Overall the album flows very well and Dolly sounds great on all tracks! Only bad point is that it is over to soon and that Dolly does quite a few of the same Oh's in the beginning of songs!
