Two of a Kind is the sixth duet album by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton, released on February 1971. The album reached #13 on the U.S. country albums chart. The album is unusual in that no single releases were issued of any of the songs. Although, the title track, "Two of a Kind," would be issued as the B-side to "Better Move It on Home" from their 1971 greatest hits compilation The Best of Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton; and the track "Oh, The Pain of Loving You" was later released as the B-side of "The Right Combination" from their 1972 album The Right Combination • Burning the Midnight Oil, with the "Oh" being dropped from the title.

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

Parton later rerecorded "Oh, The Pain of Loving You" with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, as part of their 1987 album Trio, once again with the "Oh" being dropped from the song's title.

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