The album is ‘In My Own Time’. I’ve been listening to Karen Dalton for years but I won’t be buying this, nor did I buy the RSD issue of ‘Recording Is The Trip’. The prices charged for ‘Super Deluxe Reissues’ is disgraceful, especially considering most devotees will already have most of the material.

Spend the money on Karen’s other available albums.


Considering the astronomical prices dealers are charging for Karen’s first album, “It’s So Hard…”, some reissues would be quite welcome.
