Biography & Memoir • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Dolly Parton, humanitarian and performer, brings her perky personality and vocalizations to this highly informal, freewheeling discussion of the roots and derivations of her well-known and not-so-well-known song lyrics. A voice never identified acts a bit like a host filling the interstitial segments between selections, and brief song snippets are also included. Candid stories and memories abound, yet there is something quizzical about the effort as a whole: It seems as if there was an interviewer with her at the time of writing/recording as she directs her comments to a specific person who remains unidentified. She will begin a thought and then rephrase the thought in continuous time. Listeners may want to consider this a live symposium by the beloved songwriter about her 60 years of songwriting.
