Vinyl Me, Please and Dolly Parton are rolling out a first-of-its-kind monthly record club devoted to Dolly’s catalog, Vinyl Me, Parton.
Beginning in April, fans can obtain some of Dolly’s catalog on vinyl, with twelve Records of the Month spanning the entirety of the legend’s recording career. Ranging from her debut to some of her recent self-released albums, the twelve albums included in the Vinyl Me, Parton campaign will come on exclusive color vinyl, remastered from the highest quality audio sources.
Each quarter will feature a free and exclusive Vinyl Me, Parton merch item as well. Each release was remastered in Nashville by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in Nashville, and comes with a Vinyl Me, Parton obi-strip to make the albums stand out on Dolly fans’ shelves.
“I love listening to records, and to know that fans around the world are discovering music on vinyl is wonderful,” says Parton. “I am really happy to see some of my favorite albums that have been out of print on vinyl or were never pressed on vinyl be made available. What’s old is new again!”
Curated by Vinyl Me, Please and Dolly, many of the albums featured have not been reissued since their release dates, and some of them are appearing on vinyl for the first time. Dolly’s landmark ’70s albums Jolene, My Tennessee Mountain Home, and New Harvest…First Gathering, early classics like Hello, I’m Dolly and Just Because I’m a Woman, and recent favorites like Better Day and Blue Smoke, are all getting the vinyl treatment.
Fan favorite mega smash 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs is getting its first vinyl reissue in almost 40 years, and bluegrass albums Little Sparrow and Halos & Horns, the chart-topping Backwoods Barbie, and Those Were the Days all also make their vinyl debut as part of Vinyl Me, Parton.
“It’s a true honor for us to launch this Dolly-centric subscription,” shares Vinyl Me, Please Director of Music Andrew Winistorfer. “We’ve never focused a subscription on a single artist, and it made too much sense for us to do it with Dolly: So much of her catalog has been untouched and under-reissued on vinyl, and some of her biggest albums from the ‘00s never came out on vinyl at all thanks to the era. Dolly is one of America’s National Treasures, and we hope Vinyl Me, Parton can serve as something that reminds both Dolly fans, and those unfamiliar with her LPs, that she’s one of the best songwriters we’ve ever had, and one of the best performers. These albums deserve to be heard on vinyl, and deserve to be celebrated anew.”
Subscriptions will be available in exclusive limited term engagements of 3, 6 and 12 months, and space will be limited, with pre-orders available now.
