Dance With Dolly...

So here's another download post. (Is anybody even downloadin' em? Let me know if ya are!)

When "Heartbreaker" was released in 1978, Dolly's popularity was really coming into it's own. She was ALL over the place. It was only natural and only a matter of time really before extended mixes of singles were released. And that's just what happened with two tracks from "Heartbreaker."

It's a very eclectic album, I think, that never really got it's due. It was pretty thoroughly trashed by critics. They felt that Dolly had gone pop. And I guess she had. ("Sure Thing" is about as far away from country as you one can get.) But to dismiss "Heartbreaker" is to miss the beauty and simplicity of "The Man." Or to miss the honesty and truth in "Nickels and Dimes." Or to miss the heartbreak and palpable hurt in my favorite track from the album, "It's Too Late to Love Me Now."

But I digress. This is not a review of "Heartbreaker."

Anyway, with the release of the album and the success of "Baby I'm Burnin'" on the pop charts, RCA released "Dance With Dolly" on special pink vinyl. It contained two special extended mixes of the hit single and "I Wanna Fall In Love." (Which, by the way, contains Dolly's raciest lyric ever. Bonus prize for the first person who posts it!)

I've also included extended mixes of "Save the Last Dance For Me" from "The Great Pretender" and "Potential New Boyfriend" from "Burlap & Satin." And from the 90's, the line dance mixes of "Romeo" and "More Where That Came From."

And as an added bonus, I've also uploaded a white label mix of "Baby I'm Burnin'." (The 5'10 Mix.) I kinda like it and I hope you do to.

Here's the link...

Well my guess for the lyric is the one that I always thought was pretty darn racy to me and that would be....

"I wanna fall in love, I'm undone so come and do me."

Am I right?

PS...this comment lets you know, HEY I'M READING AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT IM DOWNLOADING. LOVE IT! BTW, that picture you have of Dolly from the RAINBOW sleeve with her signature in the middle...amazing, would make an awesome background! ;-).

Very, very right! :)

Thanks for the comment!

And yes... that picture is wonderful, no? Those "Rainbow" pics are just absolutely gorgeous. So glamorous. Nobody gets Dolly picture wise as well as Annie Leibovitz does.
