is the 39th studio album by Those Were the Days Dolly Parton, released on October 11, 2005. The title comes from the first song on the album, and features Parton singing 1960s and 1970s folk and pop songs in a bluegrass fashion with some of the artists who originally recorded those songs. The album's selections were featured on Parton's concurrent Vintage Tour.
Guest artists [ edit ]
Artists lending their vocals or musicianship to the album included
Judy Collins, Roger McGuinn, Nickel Creek, Rhonda Vincent, Mindy Smith, Kris Kristofferson, Mary Hopkin, Keith Urban, Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens), and Alison Krauss. Parton told Jon Stewart in an interview on to promote the album that she had invited The Daily Show Bob Dylan to sing on " Blowin' in the Wind", but that he declined (though she added that she was not sure whether Dylan himself declined or the refusal came from his management); Joni Mitchell was scheduled to join Parton, Collins and Vincent on "Both Sides Now", but could not participate due to illness.
