The show is vintage Dolly though, she's got the big hair, the big ear rings, the bell bottoms and lot's of polyester and rhinestones. Her later series from 1987 was slightly better, but this is Dolly at a time in her career when she was just starting to become a household name. The songs are great and the jokes are corny. Dolly fans will undoubtedly love this, fans of 1970's music will most likely enjoy this as well.
When I heard that they were putting part of that variety show on DVD I was excited. I got my copy and I LOVE IT!!! Dolly looks absolutely stunning and so incredibly different in a remastered DVD than a 25 year old copy. I was almost startled at the clarity of both sound and picture. It is a nice taste of what the series has.
What is disappointing is that it is missing SOOOO much of the series. She had many amazing and sometimes bizarre guests during it's run. We only get to see a bit of the magic of Dolly in the '70s. It would be nice if this company would put out a DVD set of her show from 1976 because her fan base practically NEEDS it. Every episode has the viewer wanting to know what she is going to wear next, as she floats down from the ceiling on her red velvet swing, all rhinestoned jumpsuits, unbelievably engineered outfits, and immaculately coiffed, bouffant, platinum hair. She smiles and has the flash and dimples we have come to love from her. She easily sings all kinds of material. THere are cute comedy sketches and little gems throughout. But we don't get to see all of that on here.
Hopefully they will realize that Dolly fans will buy a DVD boxed set of this series. When I bought my VHS copies, almost 10 years ago, people were paying upwards of $300. I think there is a market. I hope they see that, since this is such an amazing period in Dolly's career, right after leaving Porter Wagoner, right before super stardom. MPI needs to make this happen!
Get it, because Dolly is always stunning, always entertaining, and always a joy to enjoy!
