"New Harvest... First Gathering" is a studio album by Dolly Parton, released in February 1977.

Album History

It is significant for being Parton's first self-produced album, as well as her first effort aimed specifically at the pop charts. Recorded partially in Los Angeles, it was also her first album to be recorded outside of Nashville.

In addition to her own compositions, Parton included The Temptations classic "My Girl" (sung as "My Love"), and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher", originally a Jackie Wilson song. Though the album wasn't the blockbuster pop hit Parton had hoped it would be -- though the it topped the U.S. country album charts, it only reached # 77 on the pop albums charts, and its single "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" stalled at # 87 on the U.S. pop singles charts -- it was fairly well received critically and one of its tracks, "Applejack" has gone to become one of Parton's best known compositions. (The album recording of the song featured an all-star lineup of country legends, including Kitty Wells, Johnny Wright, Chet Atkins, and Minnie Pearl.)

The album was nominated for a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal for "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher."

In conjunction with the Dolly Parton European Tour 2007, BMG Germany (a division of Sony/BMG) released the album for the first time on CD. It was paired with 1976's "All I Can Do" on one CD.
