The Karen Dalton revival is in full swing. Too bad she’s not around to enjoy it. A new documentary, In My Own Time, is getting rave reviews, and Light in the Attic is reissuing a 50th anniversary deluxe edition of In My Own Time, her only fully-realized studio album. Our video this week is one of the few clips that actually shows Karen Dalton performing. You’ll see why Bob Dylan called her his favorite female vocalist and elaborated on that in Chronicles: “Karen had a voice like Billie Holiday and played guitar like Jimmy Reed.”
