Dolly Tune Tops European Chart Again
For the third chart in a row, Arly Karlsen and Pat Roden's cover of Porter & Dolly's "Please Don't Stop Loving Me" remains at No. 1 on the European CMA's bi-weekly country countdown, it was announced Wednesday. The tune had been a No. 1 country hit in the U.S. in 1974 for Porter & Dolly, who also wrote the song together. The European recording of it in the current chart falls out of the top 20 country airplay in France and Austria, both countries where it had been No. 1 in the previous tally; slips one to No. 3 in Holland, where it had been No. 1 two countdowns ago; drops 10 places to No. 11 in Belgium, down from No. 1; and falls out of the top 20 in Denmark, Spain and Germany, where it had been No. 7, No. 4 and No. 2, respectively on the most recent charts. It debuts at No. 4 in Poland and re-enters the top 20 at No. 7 in the U.K., where it had been No. 1 four weeks ago. In Malta, where old songs seem to be very popular, Dolly's 1971 "Coat Of Many Colors" falls out of the top 20 for country airplay, down from No. 10, but her 1974 album track "Blackie, Kentucky," which was never released as a single, debuts at No. 19.

EDITORIAL Based in airplay throughout Europe
Updating the charts once again, we see not many changes after 15 days. But the most interesting situation is to see how Arly Karlsen & Pat Roden's duet "Please Don't Stop Loving Me" is gaining airplay points and have, after two surveys at number 1, the double of average airplay points than any other charting songs, new or older.
Other songs gaining positive airplay points are "Come a Little Closer" by the family Stone, Pat Roden's "Don't Cross My Heart", "Nothing Scare The Devil Out Of Me", by Brad Kepler, or Clelia Adams "Cowgirl Rides Away". We welcome only 5 songs this week on the Top-100, being Lisa O'Kane's newest single "Wrap Me Up" the higgest entry, specially strong in the Netherlands.

A WRITEUP RECEIVED ON THE PAT RODEN TITLE ALBUM.
The album contains a generous 13 tracks of modern country music with a mix of country/rockers and ballads that leans slightly more in favour of the former. There are some great songs on here from some of country music's finest writers like Curt Ryle, Larry Cordle, and Gail Davies, with the latter providing the excellent opener, the rocking, "Ready To Fall In Love."
Other country rockers on here include a great version of the Loretta Lynn/Conway Twitty classic, "After The Fire Is Gone." a song penned by L E White that owes more to the later Ricky Lynn Gregg version than it does to the original. I also liked "Workin' Like A Dog," the excellent, "You're Old Flame's Goin' Out Tonight" and the Curt Ryle/Curtis Wright co-write, "I Tripped Over Your Memory" 
Among the ballads on the album, Curt Ryle is also in the writing credits for "Every Other Weekend" a story of heartbreak after the break up of a marriage as well as the albums closer, the story of tragedy in "Never Had A Prayer." There is also an excellent version of the Larry Cordle/Carl Jackson penned "Lonesome Dove," a song previously recorded by Trisha Yearwood on her debut album back in 1991 and although I have a lot of admiration for Trisha Yearwood, I feel this is a much better version.
Backed up by some fine musician's, this is an excellent album from Pat Roden, a lady with a great voice who I am sure is going to go on to much better things. Although her style is more for the rockier side of country, it is still very much COUNTRY and I look forward to the prospect of her sophomore album.
