Karen Dalton: In My Own Time (Just Sunshine/Paramount)

Danny Goldberg, Rolling Stone, 22 July 1971

KAREN DALTON is a folk legend whose name is spoken with reverence on MacDougal St., in Woodstock, in Texas, or anyplace else where she has performed. She surfaced in the Village in the early Sixties and quickly became friends with Dino Valenti and Fred Neil. Five years ago she recorded an obscure album and then she vanished into the country. Mike Lang beckoned her to Woodstock to be the first release on his Just Sunshine label and the result is this new album, produced by Harvey Brooks with a cast of a dozen of the finest Woodstock musicians, including John Hall, John Simon, Dennis Siewell, and Bill Keith.
