Everybody loves Dolly. And lots of people love Porter Wagoner. Together they were one of country music’s greatest duos. On this stellar Bear Family compilation you’ll find pretty much everything they ever recorded together, from their first single, “The Last Thing on My Mind,” to four previously unreleased live cuts. It includes 21 timeless hits, like “Holding On To Nothin’,” “Just Someone I Used To Know,” “Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man,” and “Making Plans,” as well as the #1 smash “Please Don’t Stop Loving Me.”

You’ll find great deep tracks like “Good as Gold,” “Closer By The Hour,” “Milwaukee Here I Come,” “Once More” and “Before Our Weakness Gets Too Strong.” Not to mention my favorite – the odd little number “Waldo the Weirdo.” There’s 408 minutes of music across 160 recordings contained on these 6 CDs, all carefully remastered by the good folks at Bear Family. This collection contains the complete duet recordings made by Porter & Dolly during their seven-year partnership. It also features an in-depth biography by noted journalist and Dolly Parton biographer, Alanna Nash.

When Dolly was a young girl, she watched The Porter Wagoner Show every week as a fan. When Dolly joined the cast as Porter’s “girl singer” (replacing the popular Norma Jean) and the duo began recording for RCA in 1967, Porter was by far the bigger star. Porter and Dolly had more than just the playfulness and sexual chemistry of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn or the high psychodrama of Tammy Wynette and George Jones. Because they were both great songwriters, Porter and Dolly wrote songs that reflected their lives and brought an uncommon variety to their music.

Here are Porter and Dolly and “all the boys” performing their first single “The Last Thing on My Mind” on The Porter Wagoner Show:


Here’s a clip of Dolly singing Jimmie Rodgers’s classic “Muleskinner’s Blues” on The Porter Wagoner Show:

Hi! Welcome to our virtual record shop.

Our blog’s been around for a while, but we’re now finally realizing our dream of helping people find and enjoy great-sounding music. We’ve been involved with digital technology for playback gear since the late ’80s, representing specialty-audio divisions of Philips Electronics.

While we dig technology, our hearts have always been with the music. We appreciate well-recorded, well-mixed & mastered music in all formats, but we have a special affinity for the CD (compact disc). That’s what you’ll find here in our shop – CDs.

About The Shop

Although the once-preeminent CD has fallen out of favor in recent years, it persists. It’s a great-sounding format that has been diligently refined over the years and continues to deliver reference-quality sound. Just as audiophiles never abandoned vinyl, they have not abandoned CD. In fact, as CD enters its specialty niche phase, the quality of discs and playback gear continues to improve. We encourage you to reconsider CD – it’s a great addition to any serious music collector’s range. And it’s great therapy for the increasingly common condition known as “vinyl fatigue.”

We offer lovingly-curated custom batches of discs. We do not intend to compete with Amazon and Walmart, or streaming services. Our desire is to offer a range of sounds that are hard to find, or not available to stream, and are worth collecting. You’ll find new titles from respected independent labels, as well as interesting previously-owned discs from our extensive archive. We rotate the batches on a regular basis, so make it a point to come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab.

Have a look to some of the great articles by our regular rotation of contributors. And please leave comments, offer your reviews, and like & follow us on the usual social-media platforms – we’re almost always @360degreesound. We look forward to getting to know each other and the kind of music you like to collect. We respectfully solicit your feedback and suggestions.

Be well. Love music. Listen critically. – Chris Bisha, proprietor
