This is a normal post That was strange - almost like hearing it in a Tranny bar (not that I've ever been in one, mind)
Here is another great version by the White Stripes at Glasto

This is a normal post I once spent an evening
walking around Amsterdam asking for directions to a bar I was supposed to be meeting my mates at. Getting very funny looks from the locals.

It was only when I found it that I noticed most of the ladies had rather large hands...

This is a normal post It has been covered a lot
Though I probably didn't make it all that clear that this is the original, just played at the wrong speed.

I love the backing track at this speed though

This is a normal post I massively prefer hearing it at this speed.
You actually get to hear a bunch of stuff that's normally hidden under Dolly's screechy voice.

This is a normal post I like Dolly's voice...
Wished she had recorded more stuff like Jolene. It suits her.

This is a normal post I just got directed back here by an American Improv group
linking to this via something called Twenty Two words who nicked it from here.

Small world, this internet thing.

This is a normal post Also good is Atlanta Rhythm Section's "Imaginary Lover"
Play it at 45 and it sounds just like Stevie Nicks: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckDlGYU4MUQ

This is a normal post Wow that's awesome.

This is a normal post Fantastic
What's weird is that if you listen to the original, correct speed version straight after listening to this version, it sounds really odd - like it's actually a speeded-up version you're listening to...

This is a normal post The easiest way
to check out if someone's singing is a bit ropey is to slow them down, and all the little slips become obvious. It's as I suspected - Dolly Parton is actually an awesome musician with excellent pitch.
Woo!
