It would be hard to overstate the prolific nature/work ethic/buxom beauty/absolute sweetheart nature of this week's subject of Somebody Likes It, one Ms. Dolly Parton, with her 1973 record "Jolene."
If anyone has any doubt as to the grandeur of what they're about to encounter, just take a look at the cover--which if one weren't lucky enough to encounter the over-the-top (literally, this hair has to be seen to be believed) fashion of 1970's ladies in the South, well, you're in for a treat.
It's too bad that Ms. Parton only has time to write more songs than virtually anyone else on the planet, found an amusement park, act in mostly-credible movies, and somehow not manage to come off as completely full of herself. Which she probably, by all rights, ought to be by this point. and hey, maybe she is--I've never met the lady--but I doubt it. Tune in and decide for yourself.
