Dolly Parton released her second solo "best of" package in 1975 simply called "Best of Dolly Parton" (not to be confused by 1970's longer titled "The Best of Dolly Parton"). In 1978 after Dolly started recording pop music and her popularity skyrocketed this album went Gold selling 500,000 copies. In 1990 that album saw a CD release with a different front cover (this picture was used on the inside of the original vinyl gatefold album). Most music historians believe that if RCA Records took an accounting of Dolly's albums sold with the label this record has probably sold in the millions as of 2011.
This is a gem of some of the best work Dolly has ever done. A total of eight tracks were written by her, the other two by Porter Wagoner who receives producing credit. Jewels here are "Jolene", "Coat of Many Colors", "I Will Always Love You", "Touch Your Woman", "My Tennessee Mountain Home", and "The Bargain Store". The Porter-written tunes are "When I Sing For Him" and "Lonely Comin' Down".
Although there were no new tracks from this collection the LP did manage to go all the way to #5 on the Country Charts.
