Weekly vinyls – Dolly & Aretha

Here we have Aretha Franklin with Who’s Zoomin’ Who? and Dolly Parton with 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs, two classic albums from the 80s. Aretha got one of her top hits with Freeway of Love and Sisters are Doin’ it for Themselves (with the Eurythmics) and of course Dolly’s biggest hit 9 to 5 is on her album from 1980. Both are pretty good records, Aretha’s has that 80s sound to it but is listenable. 9 to 5 and Odd Jobs was Dolly’s 23rd album at the time, and is a concept album about working. There is a cover of House of the Rising Sun as well as a few other covers and originals. The artwork is ace.

Album Count 2016: 36
