The “Jolene" singer had transferred some of the older footage reels onto digital a few years ago but some of the recordings were not salvageable. Now, some of her works in her six decades career would be lost forever.
“Actually I have lost a lot of my early footage... and a lot of the songs that I had written, because I started writing songs when I was a child. I used the old Wollensak tape recorder, the reel to reel, and it started to die away and I didn't realise that was going to happen A few years ago I had to have people come in and try to save as much of it as they could. We lost a few things. That's a bad thing," she told tells Britain's The One Show.
Now, the singer has urged her fans to save their audio and video collections properly.
Country singer Dolly Parton might not have dreamt in her wildest dreams that the collection of her early film and music material could be lost but she is now left devastated following the lost of some of her early works.
