Album Review

This Dolly Parton greatest-hits collection from BMG International doesn't include anything from her early days with Porter Wagoner, instead beginning with material from Jolene, Parton's first proper solo album. The title track appears here, as does her original version of "I Will Always Love You".

Of course, "9 to 5" appears, but that's where this collection ends, suggesting that a better name for it might have been "Solo Dolly: The First Ten Years."
