The First Generation

Dolly Parton wrote I Will Always Love You in 1972 when she was in her late twenties; the song reached number one in the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs in 1974. It rose to the top of the charts again in 1982 when she re-recorded it for a movie version of a Broadway musical, starring herself and Burt Reynolds. Though this clip from the movie is from way back, before the advent of modern digital music and recording technology, it is still quite a watch, with Dolly Parton giving an unadorned, emotional rendition of the song.
