Karen Dalton – In My Own Time

$64.95 Inc. GST

Released in 1971, “In My Own Time” stands not just as Karen Dalton’s second and final studio album, but as a testament to her singular voice and spirit. It’s a record that defies easy categorization, blending folk, blues, and country influences into a sound that feels raw, intimate, and utterly unique.

Unlike the starker approach of her debut, “In My Own Time” embraces a broader palette. Lush instrumentation, courtesy of skilled session musicians, weaves around Dalton’s weathered vocals, creating a tapestry of both beauty and melancholy. Each note seems infused with lived experience, her voice carrying the weight of joy, sorrow, and quiet wisdom.

Tracks like “Something On Your Mind” and “Katie Cruel” showcase the power of her storytelling, transporting the listener with vivid lyrics and phrasing that dances between vulnerability and strength. But it’s in deeper cuts like “Little Bit of Rain” and “One More Push” where her magic truly shines. Her voice cracks and wavers, yet it possesses an undeniable magnetism, pulling you into her emotional landscape with breathtaking honesty.

There’s an undeniable rawness to the album, a sense that these are not just songs, but fragments of a soul laid bare. The production, while more polished than her debut, never overshadows the emotional core of the music. It’s a record that demands your attention, its beauty unfolding slowly, rewarding patient listeners with a richness that grows with each encounter.
