About Burlap & Satin

Burlap & Satin is the twenty-fifth solo studio album by Dolly Parton. It was released on May 2, 1983, by RCA Records. The album straddled the line between pop and country sounds. Consisting mostly of Parton's own compositions, two tracks were outtakes from the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas film: "A Cowboy's Ways" (a song intended for costar Burt Reynolds to perform in the film that was ultimately cut out of the film) and "A Gamble Either Way". The album's single, "Potential New Boyfriend" was a top 20 country single and was accompanied by Parton's first ever music video. Willie Nelson duetted on a cover of the Eddy Arnold hit "I Really Don't Want to Know". The track "Ooo-eee" was recorded by Nicolette Larson on her 1980 album "Radioland" and features backing vocals from Linda Ronstadt. As part of Parton's 2007 European tour, the album was re-released for the first time on CD by BMG Germany (a division of Sony/BMG) in a two-fer CD. It was paired with 1985's Real Love.
