Dolly Parton Just Because I'm A Woman (1968)
Originally Released 1968\nCD Edition Released October 7, 2003\n\nAMG EXPERT REVIEW: It's a measure of how impressed producer Bob Ferguson must have been with Parton that he (and possibly Porter Wagoner in the background) made no attempt to crowd her with strings or choruses on her first RCA album. In fact, it's almost frightening to hear how fully realized her talent was in 1968. -- Dan Cooper\n\nAmazon.com Customer Review\nBirth of a legend...!, October 24, 2003 \nReviewer: Joe Sixpack from Berkeley, CA United States \nIn 1968, Dolly' Parton had just emerged as Nashville's latest up-and-coming star, taking over the "girl" singer role in the Porter Wagoner show left open when Norma Jean resigned the year before. Dolly's delicious solo debut on the RCA label is a swell slice of Porter-licious country corn, with the studio slickers backing her up (Hargus Robbins, Junior Huskey, Lloyd Green, et al.) playing in a style pretty similar to what you'd hear on one of Wagoner's album. The title track is a Parton original, as are the perkier "You're Gonna Be Sorry" and "I'll Oilwells Love You"; her uncle Bill Owens contributes a few nice tunes as well, and on cheatin' weepers like Harlan Howard's "I Wish I Felt This Way At Home," Dolly oozes erotic power. She shows a penchant for her boss man's warped sense of humor, on tunes like her own "The Bridge," which is sort of the "Ode To Billie Joe" in reverse, and "The Only Way Out (Is To Walk Over Me)." Dolly was clearly a force to be reckoned with: she could play it straight, silly, or totally over the top, and still bring every song home with complete conviction and believability. If you get the chance to pick this disc up, go for it: it's totally worth it to hear the non-hit album tracks, and the new CD reissue also adds a couple of live performances from 1970, just for good measure. Highly recommended! \n\nAmazon.com Customer Review\nDolly's Very First Solo Album!, October 16, 2003 \nReviewer: Scott G. Smith from Sydney, Australia \nThis CD is a treasure for true Dolly fans -- it's her first solo release (A prior collection of recordings, "My Name Is Dolly Parton" notwithstanding), and the talent that would sustain one of the greatest music careers in history is evident here. Her voice, not overburdened by the thick arrangements usually accorded to debut artists of the time, shines through on these songs -- most of which you probably haven't heard before. (Since there's no tracklisting available here, I'll provide it myself! Baby Sister, The Bridge, False Eyelashes, I Wish I Felt This Way at Home, I'll Oil Wells Love You, I'm Running Out of Love, Just Because I'm a Woman, A Little Bit Slow To Catch On, Love and Learn, The Only Way Out, Try Being Lonely, You're Gonna Be Sorry, plus two bonus tracks from a live album, not available on CD, that was recorded in her old high school gym!). The roots of a legend, this is an absolute must-have for anyone interested in Dolly Parton, or just great country music in general. \n\nHalf.com Album Notes\nPersonnel includes: Dolly Parton (vocals); George McCormick, Wayne Moss, Chip Young (guitar); Lloyd Green (steel guitar); Charles Trent (electric banjo);Mack Magaha (fiddle); Hargus "Pig" Robbins, David Briggs (piano); Junior Huskey (bass); Jerry Carrigan (drums); Anita Carter, Dolores Edgin (background vocals).\n\nRecorded at RCA Victor Studio, Nashville, Tennessee. \nOriginally released on RCA (3949). \nIncludes liner notes by Rich Kienzle.
