#295: Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton

12.22.2011


Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton (1971)

Favorite Track(s): "Coat of Many Colors" and "My Blue Tears" and "Early Mornin' Breeze" and "Here I Am"

Thoughts: Yesssssss. I love Dolly Parton, and I hope this isn't the last we see of her on this list. I almost don't think of her as a classic country artist because her songs are all so different...unlike many classic country artists...is that rude? Oh well, I don't care. Give me Dolly over Conway, Merle, Hank, or dare I say it, even Johnny and June.

Obviously she's at the tail end of the classic era anyway, so I guess that makes sense, given my preference for folk-country over straight-up country. Wow, this got boring really fast!

Anyway, wonderful stuff. The album was over too soon.

Is This Better Than Help!?: Just as good, in my opinion!
