Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

1966
Colored Vinyl - New - DE 030
Sealed 2021 Special Edition Reissue, Pressed On Clear Green Rocky Road Coloured Vinyl. Housed In A Old School Tip On Jacket, With Exclusive 8x12 Colour Portrait, 4 Panel Insert And 3500 Word Essay From Ben Edmonds. "For Decades, The Legend Of The Late Folksinger Karen Dalton Rested On The Two Studio Albums She Released Between 1969 And 1971. Dalton Was All But Forgotten By The Time She Passed Away In 1993, Her Music Career Long Behind Her, But Posthumous Interest In Her Work Dovetailed Nicely With The Archival Spelunking That Resulted In Delmore Recordings' Release Of Previously Unheard Dalton Tapes. Following Up On Their Release Of A 1962 Dalton Recording, The Label Offered Up The Appropriately Titled 1966. This Home Recording Captures Dalton And Her Then-husband Richard Tucker Playing Together In The Cabin In Rural Colorado Where They Sought Refuge From The Greenwich Village Scene, Sans Running Water And An Official Address (Dalton Was Very Literally Off The Map). Despite The Lo-fi Nature Of The Source Tape, Which Was Made In An Ad Hoc Manner By A Local Friend, The Sparse Setting -- Just Acoustic Guitar And Banjo -- Gives Dalton's Distinctive Voice Plenty Of Room To Do Its Thing. The Song List Is Probably Typical Of What She Was Performing Live At The Time -- In Fact, She And Tucker Are Said To Have Been Rehearsing For A Gig During This Recording. As On Her Studio Albums, She Tackles Some Traditional Folk Tunes ("Cotton Eyed Joe," "Mole In The Ground") As Well As Songs By Her Friend And Fellow Folkie Recluse Fred Neil ("Other Side Of This Life," "Little Bit Of Rain") And The Work Of Her Pal And Fellow Drug Victim Tim Hardin ("Don't Make Promises," "While You're On Your Way," "Shiloh Town"). Her Version Of "God Bless The Child" Makes It Clear Why She's Often Regarded As The Billie Holiday Of The Folk World; Not Only Did Dalton Share Lady Day's Lived-in Tone, World-weary Delivery, And Troubled, Foreshortened Life, She Had A Way To Take Songs From Almost Any Source And Make Them Sound As If They'd Never Existed Before Her Haunted Pipes Brought Them Into Being." AMG Review By James Allen. more

It's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You The Best
New - LP - LITA 45
Sealed 180gm Reissue Remastered From The Original Tapes. “Some Find Karen Dalton's Voice Difficult To Listen To, And Despite The Billie Holiday Comparisons, It Is Rougher Going Than Lady Day. But Dalton's Vocals Aren't That Hard To Take, And They Are Expressive; Like Buffy Sainte-Marie, It Just Does Take Some Getting Used To Because Of Their Unconventional Timbre. Her Debut Album Has A Muted Folk-Rock Feel Reminiscent Of Fred Neil's Arrangements In The Mid-'60s, Unsurprising Since Neil's Capitol-Era Producer, Nick Venet, Produced This Disc Too, And Since Dalton, A Friend Of Neil, Covered A Couple Of Neil Songs Here ("Little Bit Of Rain," "Blues On The Ceiling"). Although Clocking In At A Mere Ten Songs, It Covers A Lot Of Ground, From Tim Hardin, Jelly Roll Morton, And Leadbelly To The Traditional Folk Song "Ribbon Bow" And The Eddie Floyd/Booker T. Jones-Penned Soul Tune "I Love You More Than Words Can Say." The Record Is Interesting And Well Done, But Would Have Been Far More Significant If It Had Come Out Five Years Or So Earlier. By 1969 Such Singers Were Expected To Write Much Of Their Own Material (Dalton Wrote None), And To Embrace Rock Instrumentation Less Tentatively.” - Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide more
