Celebrating another monumental landmark of a foundational country record, in August, VMP Country will feature Dolly Parton’s breakout album, Coat of Many Colors, just ahead of the album’s 50th anniversary. Our August Country ROTM pressing is AAA remastered, cut from tapes by Sterling Sound’s Ryan Smith and comes on 180g Rainbow Splatter vinyl.
“Especially knowing VMP got to work closely with a legend like Dolly and her team around an occasion as special as the record’s 50th anniversary, featuring Coat of Many Colors in VMP Country is nothing short of a dream,” said VMP’s Head of Editorial and Dolly fanatic, Amileah Sutliff. “It’s an essential Dolly record. It’s an essential piece of country music. And country music affinity aside, it’s a special little slice of songwriting mastery and storytelling perfection that every music lover should have a solid copy of in their arsenal, and I really believe our version does it justice.”
Coat of Many Colors will be available for sign-ups starting July 27.
