Dolly Parton - Treasures (1996) Retail CD
By the time Dolly recorded this album, her new singles were no longer being played on radio, so she took the opportunity to record covers of some of her favorite songs. With a star-studded cast of guests, the results are impressive.The album opens with Peace train (a Cat Stevens song), backed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Some of Dolly’s fans may feel that the arrangement is a little over the top, but anybody who has listened to LBM’s own music (as I have) will appreciate it.After that, the rest of the album sounds more typical of Dolly’s music, including excellent covers of Todaymore… I started loving you again (the often-covered Merle Haggard song that provided Sammi Smith with a top ten American country hit in the seventies), Something’s burning (Kenny Rogers and the first edition), Before the next teardrop falls (Freddy Fender), Walking on sunshine (Katrina and the waves), Behind closed doors (Charlie Rich), Don’t let me cross over (Carl and Pearl Butler), Satin sheets (Jeanne Pruett) and For the good times (Kris Kristofferson).After the goldrush (a Neil Young song) was recorded by Dolly with Linda and Emmylou for their second Trio album, but after a decision was taken not to release it, Dolly recorded a solo version and included it on this album. The second Trio album was eventually released, several years after it was originally recorded, complete with the Trio version of After the goldrush.All those songs are wonderful, but best of the lot is Just when I needed you most, a Randy Van Warmer hit from the seventies, which features Alison Krauss and John Sebastian. Dolly originally wanted this to be a Trio song, but it didn’t work that way. However, it works superbly here.This album was not commercially successful, but if there were any justice in this world, it would have been.
