Karen Dalton's Green Rocky Road

June 10th sees the new release of Karen Dalton’s Green Rocky Road, a collection of songs dating from 1962-1963. Like last years Cotton Eyed Joe, Green Rocky Road finds Dalton in her early 20’s and at ease in the studio- it wouldn’t be until her later 60’s official studio albums that she would release a full record. The collection of home demos taped by Joe Loop on Green Rocky Road, provide a glimpse and listen of what a full studio album would have sounded like if she had released the songs as an album. To hear Dalton in her early 20’s is a really endearing and to know how strongly she was influencing those around her at the time only adds to the experience.

Watch Karen Dalton sing, It Hurts me too:

  1. Her voice really sounds like the voices coming out today like Alela Diane. And by the way I’m very bummed out I am not old enough for those shows you talked about
