Treasures is a 1996 Dolly Parton album, made up of covers of rock and country hits from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It was her 33rd studio album. Among the selections were work by Merle Haggard, 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. (She had also recorded "After the Gold Rush" in 1994 with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris as part of the Trio 2 album, though as of Treasures' release, the Trio recording had not yet been released.) The album received mixed reviews and reached number 24 on the U.S. country albums charts. 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, 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.

In 1997, a dance remix version of Parton's recording of "Peace Train" was released and, though it did not reach the country charts, it did reach the top ten on Billboard's dance singles charts; following the success of "Peace Train", a dance remix of "Walking on Sunshine" was released.
