AllMusic Review by

Sony/Legacy's Box Set Series presents this four-disc anthology of country legend Dolly Parton. The 41 tracks included here span the singer's career from her '60s and '70s heyday to her early-'80s hit duet with Kenny Rogers "Islands in the Stream." With classic songs like "Just Because I'm a Woman" and "Daddy Was an Old Time Preacher Man," Parton's keen songwriting, charisma, and stellar voice are all on display here, though her legacy was covered in much more detail on 2009's in-depth 99-song collection Dolly. Serious fans will likely already own most of the material in this collection, but for those wishing for an affordable way to own Parton's most-loved classics, this set is a great-sounding way to do so on a budget.
