Dolly Parton - Coat Of Many Colors
After a Neil Young post that nobody read, nothing beats a country music one. But country music of the best kind, not that shitty shiny redneck Nashville shit. Coat Of Many Colors made of Dolly Parton a superstar and an American icon for pretty good reasons. Its 12 songs are just beautifully written with a raw country pop twist in the production similar to Johnny Cash. Dolly has that raucous twist in her voice, a raucous twist of a woman that, despite her young age (she was around 25 at the time and had already more of ten years in the music biz under her belt) saw her share of shit happening before music kept her out of abusive poverty. Country music is here only sugar put over wounds of the Deliverance kind. Rock'n'roll.
