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

1969 | Peak: #11

Far too polite and matronly to make for an interesting country record.

“Always, Always” plays more like an Episcopalian church hymn, with two singers pledging their love so antiseptically that they might as well be promising to pick up milk and eggs on the way home from work.
