Solid retrospective repeats many that came before

by redtunictroll@hotmail.com on 9/14/2005

A career as long and rich as Parton's can't possibly be fully surveyed in only thirty-seven tracks on two discs. But this latest Essential volume does an admirable job of pulling together many of the singer-songwriter's catalog highpoints, mixing her best-loved solo hits with duets from Porter Wagoner, Kenny Rogers and Ricky Van Shelton, her trio work with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, and finishing with a track ("Shine") from her trio of recent bluegrass-influenced albums. The track list here covers much of the same ground as the two volume mid-90s "Essential" set, though notably adding Parton's first charting single, "Dumb Blond," and stretching into Parton's twenty-first century's return to her mountain roots The merger of RCA/BMG and Sony/Columbia opened the doors for the breadth of material pulled together here, but it's simply not enough to fully essay Parton's artistry; the list of missing essentials is as long as the list included here. Further, the space available on each disc suggests a desire to keep the mechanical royalties in line with a list price that's affordable to an audience beyond Parton die-hards. This set is well positioned to replace the previous two volume series as a value-priced overview/entry-point to Parton's extraordinary catalog. That it repeats much of the same core catalog as earlier compilations is something of an empty complaint, given that it's not intended to probe any deeper. Still, with most of Parton's RCA album catalog out of print, this view of the better-known highlights does re-beg the question of when individual album reissues or a comprehensive box set will be produced for Parton's hardcore fans.
