Two of a Kind was a 1971 duet album by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton. The album reached # 13 on the U.S. country albums charts. The album is unusual in that no single 45rpm releases were issued of any of the songs. (The track "The Pain of Loving You" was later released as the "B" side of "The Right Combination" from their 1972 album of the same name.)

"Curse of the Wild Weed Flower" is of note being an anti-marijuana song, one of the few country songs of the period to discuss drugs.

Parton later rerecorded "The Pain of Loving You" with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, as part of their 1987 Trio album.

Liner notes for the album are written by Don Howser, longtime announcer for The Porter Wagoner Show program.
