Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

"I Will Always Love You."

Dolly Parton will forever more be my favorite all time artist. The very first album I ever owned was a Dolly Parton Album with this picture on the cover. I wanted that thirty-three album more than I can ever remember wanting anything. I actually sold candy for our school door to door in our neighborhood to get it to. It had wonderful songs such as "Love is Like A Butterfly", "Coat of Many Colors", and "I Will Always Love You". I think I wore that album out and it is the only Album I have kept all these years. Albums aren't very practical these days, but it was something that at eight years of age I worked my tail off to get. Dolly is so full of the life that we all so desperately want to have. She's entertainment at it's best and I only wish I had seen her in concert at an age where I could remember it clearly. Her song, "I Will Always Love You" has been done by many people in many different ways so it is of no surprise that it is being released yet again. This time though the artist herself is lending her vocals to back up a fellow artist named Stephanie J. Block. Although I will never like any version as good as Dolly's original here is a link for you to listen to the latest one.


I also found the below site where you can hear a few of the others. The one that is tagged is the one I found to be the most interesting.


Please feel free to share your thoughts.
