New Live Recording Of 1977 Dolly Parton NYC Concert To See Release In Feb. 2016

Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: Country Girl in the Big Apple: Live at The Bottom Line, New York City 1977
Label: Golden Rain
Release date: February 12, 2016

From the press release: In 1977, Dolly Parton was still in the process of becoming a household name. With a number of country hits and a moderately successful television variety show behind her, she was making the transition to world-class performer and her US chart-topping hit single, 'Here You Go Again,' released that year, would begin taking her where she wanted to go. Despite the high profile pressure, Parton was extremely comfortable with her audience and any apprehension she had coming into the Big Apple was long gone. Speaking as if she was performing to family and friends in her own living room, Parton tells the audience about everything - who inspired each song; the fact that she went that afternoon to friend Lily Tomlin's one-woman Broadway show, and that she took the time to buy new shoes while in Manhattan. They told me people in New York City don't like country music, Parton exclaims early on, but you people LOVE country, dontcha? From the very moment Dolly hits the stage, her undeniable magnetism propels her forward, but her music is the real selling point.
