Dolly Parton - Blue Smoke (2014)

Back in 2004 Dolly announced that her next album would be titled "Blue Smoke" and that in addition to the title track, it would contain covers of pop songs from the 60's. She began doing the title track on her tour that year. However the album never materialized, instead she released "Those Were The Days" which was all cover songs. Ten years later we get the "Blue Smoke" album.

Overall the album contains a mixture of the type of material she's been doing over the past two decades, bluegrass, mountain, country.
Two of the tracks have been previously released, the two duets. "You Can't Make Old Friends" with Kenny Rogers was released last year on his album of the same name. "From Here To The Moon And Back" with Willie Nelson was issued last year on his "To All The Girls" album, prior to that it was released on the "Joyful Noise" soundtrack with Kris Kristofferson as her duet partner.
"Unlikely Angel" was the theme song from the 1996 TV movie of the same name, but gets it's official release here. "Banks Of The Ohio", the old standard was originally recorded for Dolly's "Heartsongs" album in 1994, but left off the final release. The Bob Dylan classic "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" was originally intended for her "Those Were The Days" album, but appears here for the first time.
Of the title track, originally recorded with The Grascals, musically it sounds a lot like a slightly sped up version of her "These Old Bones", a very bluegrass track. "Lay Your Hands On Me" is Dolly's gospel re-interpretation of the Bon Jovi track. She did to this, the same thing she did to Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" and Collective Soul's "Shine".
"If I Had Wings" is very much in the mountain music vein of her "Little Sparrow" album. "Miss You Miss Me" is one of Dolly's tearjerkers that she does so well. "Home" is one of those old time down home country songs, that you don't hear much these days.
This brings us to the best and worst of the album. "Lover Du Jour" is Dolly at her corniest. It is right up there with "Dump The Dude" or "PMS Blues". The album ends on a very high note with "Try", which is among her uplifting best.
