Dolly Parton joins her on majestic ballad “Midnight Blue,” which Manchester took to No. 6 on the Hot 100 in 1975.

The album includes remakes of several of her hits, including “You Should Hear How She Talks About You,” for which she won a Grammy for best pop vocal performance, female, in 1983, as well as “Through the Eyes of Love,” “Don’t Cry Out Loud” and “Come in From the Rain.”
