The “Jolene" singer had transferred some of the older footage reels onto digital a few years ago but some of the recordings were not salvageable. Now, some of her works in her six decades career would be lost forever.
“Actually I have lost a lot of my early footage... and a lot of the songs that I had written, because I started writing songs when I was a child. I used the old Wollensak tape recorder, the reel to reel, and it started to die away and I didn't realise that was going to happen A few years ago I had to have people come in and try to save as much of it as they could. We lost a few things. That's a bad thing," she told tells Britain's The One Show.
Now, the singer has urged her fans to save their audio and video collections properly.
