Album Review

Since it was recorded during the '80s, Home for Christmas sounds a bit too slick, especially for fans of her early material, but it's nevertheless a reasonably enjoyable holiday record, thanks to Dolly's irrepressible charm.

Home For Christmas

This second holiday cd from Dolly isn't bad really, instead of writing and producing originals like her first holiday offering featuring Kenny Rogers Dolly chooses traditional songs and injects some personal thoughts into the songs and her spoken words tend to sound a bit like "sermonetts." Indeed this may have been intended as a concept album of sorts given the album title since Dolly is from a small town and the opening lines of the first song features a pastor instructing his congregation to open their hymnals. There is some slickness to the production and the "twang" turned down a bit but this cd is still enjoyable. My personal favorite is "We Three Kings" featuing keyboards and Banjo, but listen for a Dulcimer.

Childhood favorite

I love this album because she puts so much of her own expression into every song, while still managing to keep the authenticity of each song. Every year after Thanksgiving my mom would pull out all our Christmas tapes and CD's and Dolly's was my absolute favorite. When I hear this album, it makes me smile and reminds me of driving around town in the snow, looking at Christmas lights, and listening to Dolly Parton's Christmas album with my family. I love it!


I live where she was born, and i love her voice! she's a mountain girl just like me, I LOVE this album.

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...
