Dolly Parton - All I Can Do
‘All I Can Do’
Rooted in traditional country but just as enamored with pop, folk, and honky-tonk, she would pull off one of the most successful crossovers ever. Discovered when she was 12, while performing on Knoxville television, she was quickly signed and soon performing on the Grand Old Opry. The combination of a clear, accurate voice that could be tremulous with passion while exuding a childlike tenderness, the ability to craft emotionally engaging songs and her sheer drive and determination would culminate into dozens of albums and a string of chart topping singles, eventually earning her seven Grammy Awards. 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 chart-topping hit single, "Here You Go Again," released that year, would begin taking her where she wanted to go. Recorded for the popular Live At The Bottom Line radio concert series, this recording captures a truly pivotal moment in Parton's career. 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.

Parton continues to record and tour regularly. Parton grew up poor in rural Appalachia. She was one of 12 children, and money was always an issue for her family. Her first exposure to music came from family members, including her mother, who sang and played guitar. Parton received her first guitar from a relative and soon began to pen her own tunes.
The album was released around the time Parton began appearing regularly in the supermarket tabloids , and "Shattered Image", which advised to "stay out of my closet if your own's full of trash" was said to be a reaction to that. In a review published in the August 28, issue, Billboard said, "Exceptional LP by the enigmatic lady who has reached the pinnacle of country music success and is now making her impact, deservingly, on the pop music market. Few artists write better songs than Parton, and no one can sing them better. A powerful performer, Parton provides an album for country and pop chart consideration. Her version of Emmylou Harris' "Boulder to Birmingham" is a striking, heartfelt song, sung without pretension and with a surplus of feeling. Effective blend of slow ballads and uptempo numbers, contains a pair of her hit singles and a couple more that should make good singles.
