The Best of Dolly Parton is a compilation album by Dolly Parton, released in November 1970.

Featuring much of her early RCA material, the compilation album included the biggest hit she'd had to that point, her cover of Jimmie Rodgers' "Mule Skinner Blues", which peaked at #3 on the U.S. country charts in early 1970. This recording was also released later by Time/Life Records - the other tracks were previously released on other albums.

The Best of Dolly Parton was released just three years after Parton signed with the label and thus features several songs that were not single releases, "Down From Dover", "Gypsy Joe and Me", "Just the Way I Am", and the gospel standard "How Great Thou Art".

The album is occasionally confused with the 1975 RCA release Best of Dolly Parton. (Sometimes the albums are differentiated by their being referred to as Best of...Volume I and Best of...Volume II) and the 2007 compilation album The Very Best of Dolly Parton.

"Mule Skinner Blues" earned Parton her first ever Grammy nomination for Best Female Country Vocal.

The album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
