Treasures is a 1996 Dolly Parton album, made up of covers of rock and country hits from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Among the selections were work by Merle Haggard, Jeanne Pruett, Neil Young, Kris Kristofferson, Cat Stevens and Mac Davis. Perhaps the most surprising choices to fans were Young's "After the Gold Rush" and Stevens' "Peace Train", though Parton confessed a longtime admiration for both performers' work. Treasures featured a number of famous guest artists, including Ladysmith Black Mambazo, John Popper of Blues Traveler, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, and Alison Krauss. Its release was accompanied by a CBS television special, first airing in November 1996, in which Parton performed most of the songs, accompanied by video footage of the news stories and events from the year of each song's original release.

A thumbnail description of Treasures makes it sound like a most unpromising comeback vehicle. It contains no compositions by Parton herself, one of the finest country songwriters of her generation. It does feature such gimmicky propositions as Parton singing Cat Stevens' anti-war anthem, "Peace Train," with a South African choral group, and Neil Young's science-fiction fantasy, "After the Goldrush," with Alison Krauss and Suzanne Cox of the Cox Family.

Dolly Parton's "Treasures" album was filled with an assortment of covers of popular songs. For the promotional TV special, they amassed a collection of interviews with the original singers and songwriters and interspersed it with historical clips.
