Album Review

Dolly Parton found increasing success in the late '70s, and Heartbreaker showcases her increasing confidence beautifully. In 1978 Parton was the winner of the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year award, probably due in part to Heartbreaker's rise to number one on the country charts and its two number one singles ("I Really Got the Feeling" and the title track). While the clean country-pop is a step away from her much rootsier previous albums, it is the natural progression toward her 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs pop crossover success in the years to come. Unfortunately with this BMG Special Products release, the liner notes are nonexistent (Parton's duet partner, Richard Dennison, on "We're Through Forever ('Til Tomorrow)" goes completely uncredited) and the disco remixes of "Baby I'm Burning" and "I Wanna Fall in Love" (which were two of the year's biggest club hits) would've been terrific bonus cuts, but they are nowhere to be found. Still, it's great to have Heartbreaker back in print, no matter the shortcomings of the packaging.

Customer Reviews

BABY, I"M HAPPY!

It's so about time..."Baby, I'm Burning" Is the best song! I'm tellin ya...you want some good ol fashion late 70/early 80s disco nostalgis... this is the song..turn it up!

IT'S ABOUT TIME THEY PUT "HEARTBREAKER" ON ITUNES!!!

I had been wondering for quite some time when Heartbreaker was gonna be released on I-Tunes. Then, one day, 4 months ago, I got tired of waiting, and managed to get my hands on an copy on the album. Me and my greeeeat timing, right? Even though Ms. Dolly got a lot of flack from her country fans who thought she was going the way of pop and abandoning her roots with the release of this album in the late 70's, I think this album blends a perfect hybrid of country and pop charms. "Baby, I'm Burnin'": WHO DOESN'T love this song?? This song is 2 and a half minutes of pure disco heaven, and I wasn't even alive then! "The Man" is a beautiful nod to her father; the title track is just beautiful; "Sure Thing" is the perfect "Girl's Nite Out" song. It's impossible to pick ONE song from here, and if you love just one track on this album, you may find that the rich singing by Dolly and the utterly delicious tracks will hook you and make you want the ENTIRE album, which is a grand investment indeed!

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

It's difficult to find a country performer who has moved from her country roots to international fame more successfully than Dolly Parton. Her autobiographical single "Coat of Many Colors" shows the poverty of growing up one of 12 children on a rundown farm in Locust Ridge, Tennessee. At 12 years old, she was appearing on Knoxville television; at 13 she was recording on a small label and appearing on the Grand Ole Opry. Her 1967 hit "Dumb Blonde" (which she's not) caught Porter Wagoner's ear, and...
