The recordings are based on a thoroughly researched biography of the renowned journalist and Dolly Parton-Biographer Alanna Nash accompanied. '... I was deeply impressed by the high art and soul of duet singing and the expressiveness with which it tells of the joys and sorrows of the human heart, but Porter and Dolly became the highest quality standard for me, and that is still today changed. In this day and age, when the radios and Ipods only spit out bloodless and overrated songs from a once venerable genre, this is the real deal, friends: Country music, just like God created it. And if there's a radio station in Heaven, Porter and Dolly will be on and on forever. ' Emmylou Harris , Nashville, January 2014
There was more to Porter and Dolly than the playfulness and mutual sexual attraction of each otherConway Twitty and Loretta Lynn or the great psychological dramas by Tammy Wynette and George Jones . They were both great songwriters. Her life was reflected in her songs. Her lyrics enriched her music in unusual and varied ways. Nobody before or after them wore glossy hillbilly suits. Both liked to cause a sensation. When Porter and Dolly first recorded together in 1967, Porter was the bigger star of the two. Dolly watched his TV shows every week as a fan. By the time their collaboration ended in 1976, Dolly was one of the greatest country music stars of all time, and Porter's greatest hits were his duo recordings with Dolly.
Her works were like her professional and private relationship: sometimes playful, sometimes romantic, sometimes tormented or unbearably sad - summarized for the first time in one publication!
