Dolly Parton makes her periodic West Coast pop move. The results vary, depending on how far Parton strays from her Appalachian roots. "Light of a Clear Blue Morning," which originally appeared on her first solo album, polishes up nicely -- all the L.A. glitz in the world can't hide the pure gospel beauty of that chorus. "Straight Talk" isn't nearly as strong as Parton

Overview

"Light of a Clear Blue Morning," which originally appeared on her first solo album, polishes up nicely -- all the L.A. glitz in the world can't hide the pure gospel beauty of that chorus.
