...Songwriter, Porter Wagoner. "Two original LPs from the queen of country music on CD for the very first time. Before Dolly the pop icon. Before Dolly the cultural phenomenon. There was Dolly the most sublime songwriter and performer of her generation. The evidence is right here. The Fairest Of Them All is the greatest Dolly Parton album you've never heard, recorded over 1968 and 1969 and never issued in any form, it is a superb recording from start to finish. From the harrowing psychiatric depths of 'Daddy Come And Get Me' and the empowering heights of 'Just The Way I Am' to the most moving narrative in the Parton canon, 'Down From Dover.' 'Robert' tells of forbidden love; 'Chas' of passion that can never be. Dolly is at her creative peak, always breaking new ground. Also included is the 1972 LP My Favorite Songwriter, Porter Wagoner, a fine tribute to her mentor and companion through these years. Remastered from the original RCA Victor master tapes, both albums appear for the very first time on CD and are presented in a deluxe collector's edition with exclusive liner notes, unpublished photos and two very rare extra tracks. Twenty-page full color booklet and memorabilia included. Twenty-three-track CD. All original recordings."
