Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton – The Artist/s

Kenneth Ray Rogers (1936 – 2020) was an American singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, and entrepreneur. Rogers was particularly popular with country audiences but also charted more than 120 hit singles across various music genres, and topped the country and pop album charts in the UK and the US. He sold over 100 million records worldwide during his lifetime, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. His fame and career spanned multiple genres: jazz, folk, pop, rock, and country. He remade his career, and was one of the most successful cross-over artists of all time.

Dolly Rebecca Parton (born 1946) is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian, known primarily for her work in country music. After achieving success as a songwriter for others, Parton made her album debut in 1967 with Hello, I’m Dolly. With steady success during the remainder of the 1960s (both as a solo artist and with a series of duet albums with Porter Wagoner), her sales and chart peak came during the 1970s and continued into the 1980s.

Islands in The Stream – The Song

‘Islands in The Streamis a song written by the Bee Gees and sung by American country music artists Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Named after the Ernest Hemingway novel, it was originally written for Marvin Gaye in an R&B style, only later to be changed for the Kenny Rogers album. 

Islands in the Stream (1970) is the first of the posthumously published works of Ernest Hemingway. The work, rough but seemingly finished, was found by Mary Hemingway among 332 works Hemingway left behind at his death. Islands in the Stream was meant to encompass three stories to illustrate different stages in the life of its main character, Thomas Hudson.  It’s the story of an artist and adventurer who lives the bachelors life on an island in the Gulf Stream during the thirties. His existence is dictated by the waves and the tides until his son comes to visit and he has to grapple with the role of father and the unfamiliar demands of a family. The main characters love was fishing for Blue Marlins.

The Heart – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a a loving heart. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.

    I was setting up my media room, and I wanted to do it with pieces that represented things special to myself and my husband – artwork from a book we enjoyed, a framed poster of a film we loved, etc and this was our single when we met in1983. I can’t believe I discovered it so different and unusual and so perfect.☺️
    Price packaging delivery everything was spot-on. I am incredibly happy with my purchase. Thank you very much. 💛
