Parton accepting the Liseberg Applause Award in However, Parton 's sunny but grounded personality still shines through and -- even more importantly -- her vocals and songwriting are both in superb shape, especially on "When the Sun Goes Down Tomorrow" and the title cut.
The following year's New Harvest First Gathering was the first salvo from Dolly after parting ways with Wagoner and hiring a new management team with an eye toward higher mainstream visibility. The result is an album that seems to have one foot in Nashville and the other in the land of adult contemporary music, but Parton , who produced the sessions, showed plenty of respect to Parton the artist, and while some cuts work better than others, it's a strong, emotionally mature set that rises above a potentially high schmaltz level with superb vocals and songs dealing with grown-up love in both realistic and heartfelt fashion.
And significantly, the most clearly country tune on the album, "Applejack," is also the least impressive. These two albums were a stretch for fans of early masterpieces like Just Because I'm a Woman and Jolene , but also showed that Parton could take her talent in a number of different directions, and they sound great individually and as a set.
The title track All I Can Do was the only single from the album, peaking at number 3. It has handclaps and a gospel feel to its euphoric ending which just makes it a real fun song to sing along with. The Fire That Keeps You Warm is another poppy love song, with some nice guitar and freshness to the vocal delivery.
All the songs on this album were self-penned except for two covers and you really hear a renewed vigour in the writing. As usual Dolly is able to go back to themes and ideas again and again, honing them and developing her songwriting over time.
This song in particular feels like a more joyful exploration of the feeling that home gives her — a road song that may have been written on tour. Add Comment. First Gathering Album Lyrics 1.
