Dolly is the 16th solo studio album by the American singer Dolly Parton, released on September 15, 1975. It is sometimes referred to as Dolly: The Seeker – We Used To to differentiate it from Parton's 2009 4-disc, career-spanning box set Dolly. In the United States, the first single, "The Seeker," peaked at #2 and was later covered by Merle Haggard. The follow-up single, "We Used To", with its "Stairway to Heaven"-inspired guitar intro, reached #9. The album reached # 14 on the country album charts in the US.

The B-Side of "The Seeker" was a song written by Porter Wagoner titled "Love with Feeling". It has not appeared on any other release and it is among Parton's harder to find recordings, as it is only available on the 45 single release of "The Seeker".
