I Believe in You

Review 2007 compilation from the enormously gifted and talented singer/songwriter, the most successful female artist in Country Music history. From the '60s to the millennium, Dolly has been there combining the bluegrass influences of her youth with the ever-evolving 'modern' sounds of Country & Western. Her performances are always stunning, whether she is accompanied by a small acoustic group or an orchestra. Not only is she an extraordinarily emotive vocalist, she's also an experienced musician and fantastic songwriter (most of her hits were self-penned). 20 tracks including '9 to 5', 'I Will Always Love You', 'Jolene', 'Here You Come Again', 'Coat of Many Colors', 'Islands in the Stream' (with Kenny Rogers) and many more. Sony/BMG.

Now [Deluxe Edition]

Review Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton is back with a new album, PURE & SIMPLE, her first release since 2014's Blue Smoke.

Produced by comprised of songs written solely by Dolly, highlights of this love songs-oriented album include "Pure and Simple," "Head Over High Heels," as well as new recordings of "Tomorrow is Forever," originally recorded as a duet with Porter Wagoner in 1970 and then again with Solomon Burke in 2006, and "Say Forever You'll Be Mine," which Dolly originally recorded with Porter Wagoner in 1975.
Younger Now

Review Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Jolene was Dolly Parton's 13th solo studio album, produced by Bob Ferguson. It was released in February 1974. A sparkling production creates a rich backdrop for both 'Jolene' and 'When Someone Wants to Leave'. This tasteful mix is a joy to listen to. The music and Parton's vocal prowess are in top form on 'Jolene'. The title track tells the tale of a housewife confronting a beautiful seductress who she believes is having an affair with her husband. It became the second solo #1 Country single and a moderate Pop hit. Includes 'I Will Always Love You'.
My Kind Of Christmas

Review Singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton is proud to release her new album "Blue Smoke." The album reflects the character of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee where Dolly grew up and has a tone that harkens back to her rootsy, back-to-basics albums. "Blue Smoke" is an all new studio album with most tracks written by Dolly that also features duets with Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers and covers of Bon Jovi's "Lay Your Hands On Me," and Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice." According to All Music, The remarkable thing is how satisfying an album this is: it sounds good and the songs are sturdy, proof that Parton is far from resting on her laurels.
