From Country Music Classics, an internet info service:

"Dolly made her first-ever appearance on "Austin City Limits" last week. She performed songs from her new bluegrass album, along with several classics. The show will air March 24th."

I'll be looking forward to it!

She was also on Fresh Air on Tuesday & had a short write up in Newsweek this week. Every time I've heard her interviewed I've really been impressed. What I've heard of her new old time CD sounds good.

For the last month I've been listening to her new CD "Little Sparrow". It absolutely blows me away.

It is an excellent collection of songs.She does covers of some I know, "Shine (heaven let your light shine down","Seven Bridges Road" and others I hadn't heard before. She even sings in Gaelic on "In the Sweet Bye and Bye".

I've got a promotional CD that doesn't list the musicians, but it sure sounds lke Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush and assorted other friends.

It is a great CD.Just released on the 23rd.

Rangeroger,

My promotional copy has all of the credits.

The Gaelic singing on "In the Sweet By and By" is Mairead NiMhaonighi of Altan. You're right about Jerry Douglas, but the mandolin player is Chris Thile, not Sam Bush.

My review in the Montreal Gazette is available here. You have to scroll down past CD reviews from other genres.

I'll look forward to the show. I've long admired Dolly for a couple of things (now stop that Spaw) ... her vocal work and her songwriting. I loved Goodbye to Daddy and sang it for years. I always really enjoyed her less mainstream stuff. In her maturity she is showing her roots!

By the way - great review, Mike, if brief!

I love her sense of humour: someone asked her how long it took to do her hair for a show. She replied:" I don't know, I'm never there!"

I just LOVE Dolly. I didn't used to, back in the 80s during the Countrypolitan thing. But later on I realized that with Dolly, what you see is what you get. She knows she dresses tacky. She does it on purpose because she likes it and doesn't care if anyone else does or not. She isn't afraid to just be who she is. And she's a great songwriter and performer. Notice she is still around when other country artists of the 70s-80s have vanished.

You GO, girl!

I love her too, but a joke opp is a joke opp.

I am glad to see her back to her roots and expanding her skills at the same time. I'm with Kim............its easy to make jokes about Dolly, but you cannot deny the talent and that "here I am and I am me" attitude. Nice review Mike.

Jed,

CD reviews in the Montreal Gazette are limited to about 150 words. Gotta be brief.

One of my favorite Dolly stories: several years ago, Burt Reynolds (of all people!) hosted a one-night show where he interviewed Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, and Dolly. It was actually really good. Anyway, Dolly told this story of how she had stopped in to the drugstore to pick up some lip gloss or some such, and the tabloids that week said things like "Dolly's Breasts are Killing Her." (I remember seeing those.) She said a woman came up to her an asked, "Is it true, Dolly? Are your breasts really killing you?"

Dolly said, "I told her, Sugar, they ain't botherin' me a bit but they seem to be killin' everybody else!"

I've liked Dolly Parton since back in the day, before Porter Wagoner, when she was making albums for RCA. She had some pretty good songs then, too, though I'm not sure if she wrote " There's Somethin" Fishy Goin' On", and " YOur Ole' Handy Man", two of my favorites from that time. Nobody made any mention of her breast size then. I've used " Coat of Many Colors" with my Chinese students several times. It has a story that Chinese people can relate to. We even used it as a a frame to write a script for a play that we put on last year. I'm going to find that bluegrass CD as soon as I can. Seth from China

No one mentioned her CD of a year or so ago... "THE GRASS IS BLUE"......? It has some terrific songs and a whole host of great bluegrass musicians. Dolly's version of the old Joan Baez recording of the sixties - "SILVER DAGGER" - was , I thought, very well done. Am I correct in believing that she plays some musical instrument/s too ; although not on this particular CD I know.? What other songs and which musicians are on this new one.? I know that she has spent many vaccations in the West of Ireland , where she made herself quite at home, I understand , and was very popular in some of the area's hostelries. I'm wondering what the "Gaelic" track on "LITTLE SPARROW" sounds like but hav'nt heard anything of the CD until now?

Beachcomber, "Little Sparrow" was just released last Tuesday, the 23rd. Listen to it, you'll really enjoy it.
