Retro Single Review: Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton, “The Right Combination”

1971 | Peak: #14

The song itself is fairly generic, typical of the Wagoner/Parton love songs that never sound quite as believable as their other songs.

But this one works better because Parton is fully flowering as a vocalist.  Her vocal trills sound so heartfelt that they add that dose of genuine passion that earlier duets were lacking.
