Vinyl Me, Please and Dolly Parton are excited to announce a first-of-its-kind monthly record club devoted to the legendary career and peerless catalog of Dolly Parton. Starting in April 2023, Vinyl Me, Parton will give Dolly Parton fans a monthly connection with her catalog on vinyl, with 12 Records of the Month spanning the entirety of Dolly’s recording career. Pre-order the subscription here and keep reading to learn more about Vinyl Me, Parton.
Ranging from her debut to some of her recent self-released albums, the 12 albums included in the Vinyl Me, Parton campaign will come on exclusive color vinyl, remastered from the highest quality audio sources and pressed on 180g vinyl. Each quarter will feature a free and exclusive Vinyl Me, Parton merch item as well. All of the albums were remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in Nashville, and come with a Vinyl Me, Parton obi strip to make the albums stand out on Dolly fans’ shelves.
“I love listening to records, and to know that fans around the world are discovering music on vinyl is wonderful,” says Parton. “I am really happy to see some of my favorite albums that have been out of print on vinyl or were never pressed on vinyl be made available. What’s old is new again!”
Curated by VMP and Dolly, many of the albums featured in Vinyl Me, Parton have not been reissued since their release dates, and some of them are appearing on vinyl for the first time as part of Vinyl Me, Parton. Included in the subscription are Dolly’s landmark ’70s albums Jolene, My Tennessee Mountain Home and New Harvest … First Gathering. Early classics like Hello, I’m Dolly and Just Because I’m a Woman appear here alongside recent favorites like Better Day and Blue Smoke. Fan-favorite mega-smash 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs is getting its first vinyl reissue in almost 40 years, and bluegrass albums Little Sparrow and Halos & Horns, the chart-topping Backwoods Barbie and Those Were the Days all will make their vinyl debut as part of Vinyl Me, Parton.
Vinyl Me, Parton isn’t the first time VMP and Dolly Parton worked together — her landmark Coat of Many Colors was featured as a VMP Country Record of the Month in 2021 — and it won’t be the last. There will be additional releases of key titles not featured in Vinyl Me, Parton available first to VMP Members in VMP’s store.
“It’s a true honor for us to launch this Dolly-centric subscription,” said Vinyl Me, Please Director of Music Andrew Winistorfer. “We’ve never focused a subscription on a single artist, and it made too much sense for us to do it with Dolly: So much of her catalog has been untouched and under-reissued on vinyl, and some of her biggest albums from the ’00s never came out on vinyl at all thanks to the era. Dolly is one of America’s National Treasures, and we hope Vinyl Me, Parton can serve as something that reminds both Dolly fans, and those unfamiliar with her LPs, that she’s one of the best songwriters we’ve ever had, and one of the best performers. These albums deserve to be heard on vinyl, and deserve to be celebrated anew.”
Subscriptions will be available in exclusive limited-term engagements of three, six and 12 months, and space will be limited. Pre-orders are available now!
