Retro Single Review: Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton, “Together Always”

1972 | #14

It’s another Porter and Dolly love song, and such do tend to be less memorable then their heartbreak songs and bickering-couple songs.  The chorus of “Together Always” is rather blank lyrically, but it’s lifted to a higher level by Parton’s spirited performance.  The lilting melody and light piano-driven arrangement lend a subtly infectious, joyful sound to the record.

It’s not one of the biggest or best hits by the Parton-Wagoner duo, but the tasteful sonic packaging make “Together Always” enjoyable, if nonessential.
