September of Soundtracks: A Lil' Ole Bitty Pissant Country Place
Since we're on a roll with Burt Reynolds' soundtracks, I thought why not post the soundtrack from the film version of "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas". For all intense purposes, the film is horrible. It just did not transcend well to the screen. At least not the way they made it back in 1982. In addition to Burt as the sheriff, there's the great Dolly Parton as Miss Mona and Dom Deluise as Melvin P. Thorpe. The soundtrack boasts the same songs as in the stage version with the addition of two new original songs by Dolly: "Sneakin' Around" and "I Will Always Love You". Dolly's original version of I Will Always Love You blows away that god awful remake by Whitney Houston. Anyway, as bad as the film is, how can you go wrong with the soundtrack? Especially with Burt Reynolds singing! You be the judge when you listen to "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas". Enjoy!
