Dolly, Dolly, Dolly was a 1980 studio album by Dolly Parton. Coming at the height of her late 1970s-80s quest for pop success, the album was her least traditional country-sounding album to that point, with a number of songs bordering on disco. Though the album's two singles, "Starting Over Again" (written by Donna Summer) and "Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You" topped the U.S. country charts ("Starting Over Again" also hit #36 on the pop charts), the album is generally regarded by critics, as well as Parton's fans, as one of the worst albums of her career; it was almost universally panned at the time of its release, with only People Magazine liking it. The album was noteworthy for being one of the only Parton albums to that point not to include a single of her own compositions; it was comprised entirely of covers.

In 2007, the album was reisused in the UK as a "two-fer", along with 1979's Great Balls of Fire, marking the first time it was available on CD.
