Dolly Parton: White Limozeen CD Track Listing

A list by checkmate

Dolly Parton White Limozeen (1989)
Originally Released May 11, 1989\n\nAMG EXPERT REVIEW: Parton moved to Columbia in the late 80s and started paying more attention to her recordings, the best of which is this album. It's produced by Ricky Skaggs, who brought in such fast-picking cronies as Bela Fleck and Jerry Douglas and used more of Parton's own songs than usual. The result is an unusual consistency and a musical revitalization for the singer. -- William Ruhlmann\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nA country masterpiece, January 27, 2004\nReviewer: P D Harris "Pete the music and horse racing fan" (Leicester England)\nFollowing ten years of pop-country music recorded in Hollywood, Dolly surprised everybody in 1987 when she and her friends, Linda and Emmylou, recorded the very traditional country Trio album. It sold two million copies in America, far more than Dolly's solo album, Rainbow, also from 1987. The public had delivered their verdict and Dolly got the message - sing country. So, in 1989, we got this album, produced by Ricky Skaggs. It did not match the standard set by Trio but was never going to. That was an exceptional album, but this is a very fine album that no self-respecting Dolly fan should be without. One of the song titles, Take me back to the country, says it all.\nThere are some brilliant upbeat, fun songs here, including Why'd you come here looking like that, a country number one hit, Time for me to fly, a bluegrass cover of an REO Speedwagon rock song, Wait till I get you home, a duet with Mac Davis, and the title track.\n\nThe fun songs are brilliant but the ballads are even better. They include Yellow roses, one of Dolly's finest ever ballads about a broken relationship, What is it about you my love, The moon the stars and me and Dolly's duet with Ricky Skaggs, Slow healing heart.\n\nI have never been especially keen on He's alive, but it seems that many people just love this gospel song. I suspect that it works well in church or in concert. Maybe I'd appreciate it better if I heard it that way.\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nWelcome Back Dolly, May 26, 2002\nReviewer: J. M. Zuurbier (Canada)\n1989's WHITE LIMOZEEN marked Dolly's return to country music, after experimenting in crossover and pop. And this album doesn't disapoint at all, all the songs are top notch. The album opens with the inspiring leave your man song "Time For Me To Fly". "Yellow Roses" is one of her more touching ballads, also heartbreakingly real. "Why'd You Come In Here Lookin Like That" became a Dolly classic instantly with its catchy chorus. "Slow Healing Heart" is about as country as they come, and "What Is It My Love" explores what makes two people love each other. "Wait Till I Get You Home" joins Dolly with Mac Davis on a fun uptempo song. "Take Me Back To The Country" is quite symbolic, it's symbolic of Dolly returning to her country roots, but its a great song! "The Moon, The Stars and Me" is one of Dolly's best ballads, very heartbreaking, but also beautiful in its melody. Probably the most interesting song here is the gospel song "He's Alive", which tells a story, and is definately the highlight of the CD. Overall fans who were upset with her crossover albums in the 80's, such as RAINBOW, REAL LOVE, etc should be satisfied with LIMOZEEN, it is a return to form, and among her best albums.\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nDolly returns to traditional country!, November 9, 2001\nReviewer: Chris Barnes "DollyOn-Line" (Nashville, TN)\nAfter her unsuccessful adventure into the pop world with her 1987 release "Rainbow". Dolly, with producer Ricky Skaggs, returns to traditional country music with one of her best selling albums ever. The album produced two #1 singles "Why'd You Come In Here Lookin' Like That" and "Yellow Roses". Dolly kicks off the album with a bluegrass flavored cover of REO Speedwagon's "Time For Me To Fly", which is personally one of my favorite Dolly covers. The album contains two duets, one with longtime Dolly friend Mac Davis on "Wait 'Til I Get You Home" and a duet with the albums producer Ricky Skaggs on "Slow Healing Heart". Dolly closes the album with one of her most requested songs "He's Alive" performed with the Christ Church Choir. This album is a must for Dolly & country fans!\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nA Chaffeur-Driven Classic, January 6, 2000\nReviewer: Steven Fantina (Phillipsburg, NJ USA)\nFor this late eighties renaissance album, Dolly Parton told producer Ricky Skaggs to "Take Me Back to the Country." After years of mediocre pop-oriented material, Dolly returned to her traditional roots, and the results were very, very impressive!\nFrom the playful humor of "Why Did You Come in Here Lookin' Like That?" to the penetrating laments of "What is it About You My Love?" Dolly does justice to many classic country themes. "The Moon, The Stars, and Me " is a touching tale of betrayal. The title song with its offbeat spelling is another light offering with a bouncy beat, and "Time for Me to Fly" which seems like it would be appropriate among Patsy Cline's repertoire is actually a countrified remake of a rock offering and seems to provide a homecoming for the song. Mac Davis duets with her on one cut, reminding listeners that his voice is too rarely heard from these days.\n\nThe album's unquestionable standout is "He's Alive" which has become something of a gospel music classic. Dolly's performance is a reverent show-stopper. It has become the finale of her live shows and is the type of song that can stand many repetitions without getting stale.\n\nThis collection started Dolly back on the road to artistic elegance even if most disc jockeys ignore her these days. White Limozeen is just one more reason to turn off the radio's cowboy hatted clones and enjoy the stellar country of Dolly and her contemporaries.\n\nHalf.com Details \nContributing artists: Bela Fleck, Jo-el Sonnier, Mac Davis, Ricky Skaggs, Vince Gill \nProducer: Ricky Scaggs \n\nAlbum Notes\nPersonnel includes: Dolly Parton, Mac Davis (vocals); Ricky Skaggs (acoustic guitar, mandolin); Mark Casstevens (acoustic guitar); Vince Gill (electric guitar); Bela Fleck (banjo); Stuart Duncan (fiddle); Nashville String Machine (strings); Jo-El Sonnier (accordion); Barry Beckett (keyboards); Mark Brignardello (bass); Eddie Bayers (drums).\n\nIndustry Reviews\n3 Stars - Good.\nQ (01/01/1995)
