Dolly Parton – “Jolene” b/w “Coat of Many Colours” and “Love Is Like a Butterfly” (RCA 2675) (1974)


It’s not kitsch, it’s not a joke, it’s not taking the piss and it doesn’t only work when you’re high: if you play the “Jolene” single at 33 RPMs, it sounds awesome. I bought this today to enjoy the unintended consequence of someone’s late night jape.

  1. Dug out my charity shop 7″ after reading this. Incredible how it doesn’t sound wrong at 33rpm. Mindblast.

    • Word is bond. Reminds a bit of Cher with better pipes and/or a homosexual torch singer. Either way it works.
