Just Between You And Me: Complete Recordings 1967-1976

Just Between You And Me: Complete Recordings 1967-1976

(6-CD LP-size box set with 80-page hardcover book. 160 tracks with a playing time of 407:39) Porter and Dolly had even more than the playfulness and sexual chemistry of Conway Twitty-Loretta Lynn and the high psychodrama of Tammy Wynette-George Jones. Because they were both great songwriters, they wrote songs that mirrored their lives and brought an uncommon variety to their music. Both of them dressed in high hillbilly glamor – like no one else before or since. Neither of them was afraid to make a splash.

When Porter and Dolly began recording in 1967, Porter was the bigger star and Dolly watched his TV show every week as a fan. By the time of their last duets in 1976, Dolly was one of the biggest stars that country music had ever seen, and Porter’s biggest hits were his duets with Dolly. Their work was sometimes playful, sometimes romantic, sometimes tortured, and sometimes unbearably sad, much like their personal and professional relationship. For the first time, it’s all in one place!

The greatest male-female duet in country music! ”They made all other duet teams sound like footnotes” (critic John Morthland). Includes 21 timeless hits plus many rarities including their 1973 release of Here Comes The Freedom Train, plus live recordings. 160 recordings in all! The accompanying hardcover book features an in-depth biography by noted journalist and Dolly Parton biographer, Alanna Nash.
