Dolly Parton, 'Coat of Many Colors'


Dolly Parton, 'Coat of Many Colors'
301/500

RCA Victor, 1971

Parton's starkest, most affecting album. The title track is about wearing rags but staying proud; on "Traveling Man," Parton's mom runs off with her man; on "If I Lose My Mind," her boyfriend has sex with another woman in front of her.
