Dolly records her first live album, ‘A Real Live Dolly,’ in Sevierville, Tenn. with special guest, Porter Wagoner
In 1970, Dolly released her first live album, ‘A Real Live Dolly’ on the RCA Nashville label. She recorded the album during a concert in the gym of her alma mater, Sevier County High School as part of the first Dolly Days event, a yearly celebration in Dolly’s hometown.
Several songs featured Porter Wagoner, her long-time duet partner and host of “The Porter Wagoner Show.” Porter also arranged the tracks. Comedian Speck Rhodes does a spoken comedy piece on the album. Rhodes was famous for his country comedy stylings on “The Porter Wagoner Show” and “Hee Haw” which also featured Dolly.
The album begins with an introduction by Cas Walker. Walker hosted a television show called “The Farm and Home Hour” that gave Dolly her start at the age of 10.
