Dolly Parton Box Set Coming
Of all the wondrous things Dolly Parton has accumulated during her spectacular life in show business—seven Grammy awards, two Oscar nominations, a Tony nomination and her 1999 induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, to name just a handful—the one thing missing from her eye-opening resumé was a career-spanning, multiple-label box set that featured music from her earliest days as a recording artist, through her chart-topping days with RCA, up to her current status as a bona fide national treasure. With the October 27 release of RCA/Legacy's Dolly, that situation has now been rectified. And how!
From her first national hit in 1967, the ironically titled "Dumb Blonde" (nobody with a lick of sense ever accused Dolly of that!) and the legendary '70s duets with Porter Wagoner, from her first number one single ("Joshua") in 1970 to her 26th number one in 1991 ("Rockin' Years," a duet with Ricky Shelton) and all train stops in between, Dolly has it all. "To Know Him Is To Love Him" from the fertile three-way collaboration with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, the amazing crossover pop smashes, including the heartfelt duet with Kenny Rogers "Islands In The Stream," as well as revered juke box staples "9 To 5" and "Here You Come Again," this 101 track/4 CD treasure trove covers all the bases. You may never have to leave home again, but if you do, be sure to take Dolly along for the ride.
