Dolly Parton Posing at a Photo Session for the Cover of Her Album ‘Heartbreaker’ in Los Angeles, 1978

Some behind the scenes photographs by Ed Caraeff of Dolly Parton taken during the cover session for her album Heartbreaker on February 15, 1978 in Los Angeles, California.

Heartbreaker is the twentieth solo studio album by Dolly Parton. It was released on July 17, 1978, by RCA Victor. The album was produced by Gary Klein and Parton with Charles Koppelman serving as executive producer and was an even more direct aim at the pop charts, with several of its songs verging on disco.

The album topped the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for nine consecutive weeks and peaked at number 27 on the Billboard 200. The album produced two number one hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, “Heartbreaker” and “I Really Got the Feeling”, while “Baby I’m Burnin’” peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album has been certified Gold in the United States and Canada.

Following the success of 1977’s Here You Come Again, Parton again teamed up with producer Gary Klein for her follow-up album. The album furthers her transition into pop music and features disco influences as well. The album cover, a gatefold design depicting Parton in a series of surreal, dream-like images, was designed by graphic artist Ed Caraeff, who had also designed the cover art for Here You Come Again.
