Karen Dalton ‎- In My Own Time (Cassette)


Limited to 500 copies, hand numbered.

Recorded over a six month period in 1970/71 at Bearsville, In My Own Time was Daltons only fully planned and realized studio album. The material was carefully selected and crafted for her by producer/musician Harvey Brooks, the Renaissance man of rock-jazz who played bass on Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited and Miles’ Bitches Brew. It features ten songs that reflected Daltons incredible ability to break just about anybodys heart – from her spectral evocation of Joe Tate's “One Night of Love”, to the dark tragedy of the traditional “Katie Cruel”. Known as a great interpreter of choice material, Dalton could master both country and soul genres with hauntingly pining covers of George Jones “Take Me” and Holland-Dozier-Hollands “How Sweet It Is”.
