*** 1/2 Dolly Parton, "Little Sparrow," Sugar Hill.

March 10, 2001|RANDY LEWIS

Parton's second album returning to her bluegrass roots is even more haunting than last year's "The Grass Is Blue." This is "mountain music," and despite Parton's big-city experience and pop-crossover years, it's as authentic as it gets. Wrenching tales of well-meaning souls losing hope, faith and even life are balanced by a couple of joyful tunes, including Cole Porter's "I Get a Kick Out of You."
