We are absolutely thrilled to announce the 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe edition of Karen Dalton’s 1971 masterpiece, In My Own Time.
Available to pre-order today, In My Own Time is presented on three sides of 45-RPM, 180-gram vinyl, with the fourth side showcasing alternate takes from the album sessions. The first single, an alternate take of “Something On Your Mind” is streaming now! Also included is the previously unreleased audio from her rare, captivating performance, Live at The Montreux Golden Rose Pop Festival, May 1st, 1971, which is exclusive to the Super Deluxe package. This is the first time this audio has been made available in any physical format — presented on 180-gram 12-inch vinyl, and featuring a stunning etching of Dalton by acclaimed artist Jess Rotter on the B-Side. Accompanying the bonus record is a replica playbill from The Montreux Golden Rose Pop Festival, 1971, meticulously arranged from vintage source material by @dnorsen_design. In addition to the bonus 12”, the set contains a CD of all tracks included in the package and two 7-inch singles, featuring previously-unreleased live recordings captured at Germany’s Beat Club in 1971. The package also features a 20-page booklet—featuring rarely seen photos, liner notes from musician and writer Lenny Kaye, and contributions from @nickcaveofficial and @devendrabanhart, which comes housed in a special trifold jacket, individually foil-stamped and numbered in a strictly limited worldwide edition of 2,000 copies.
We’re also pressing 7-inch digital and physical single featuring our friend @angelolsenmusic covering “Something on Your Mind,” with Dalton’s version on the B-side. The single is available now for preorder and streaming on January 13th.
