Those Were the Days

Dolly Parton

Dolly's 2003 For God and Country combined patriotic and religious songs, and this follow-up also has a dual concept: it's a duets album of 1960s folk and pop covers. Keith Urban, Lee Ann Womack, Norah Jones and others turn up—even the former Cat Stevens, Yusuf Islam.

Some of the selections are protest songs, but, as with God and Country, Dolly stops short of hammering home a statement about current events. She does add another lovely chapter to her ongoing musical renewal.
