The first time I heard a Karen Dalton recording, I seriously thought that somebody was playing a joke on me.  What I was hearing was too good to be true.

The anniversary of her death in 1993 is coming up next month, and while I’m not interested in observing dubious anniversaries –especially a few weeks before the actual date– I’ve been listening to Dalton a lot lately, and figured I should share for those who haven’t been lucky enough to be exposed to one of the most beautiful and haunting voices I’ve ever heard.
