Greenwich Village folker Karen Dalton’s 1969 debut, It’s So Hard To Tell Who’s Going To Love You The Best, has been reissued for the first time (and on 180g vinyl) by the folks over at Light In The Attic Records.  In 2006 the label reissued Dalton’s sophomore effort, In My Own Time, which, besides a couple of folk compilation tracks, was my introduction to her work.
