LP version housed in tip-on jacket, with four page heavy insert, exclusive color portrait and download card. "In 1966, Carl Baron brought his reel to reel over to her remote cabin in Summerville, Colorado and recorded one of those exquisite musical evenings. Karen and Richard Tucker were rehearsing for a gig when Carl hit the record button. The result is a 45-year-old tape, carefully exhumed, documenting Karen at her most raw and unfiltered. On it are Fred Neil and Tim Hardin songs we've never heard Karen give voice to before, as well as traditional songs she uncannily makes her own, including a devastating version of 'Katie Cruel', that is so powerful, it is as if the ghost of Katie Cruel seeped into her blood. This recording is a window to her Summerville cabin opened, allowing us to eavesdrop on Karen Dalton at her most pure and unaffected. Newly unearthed rehearsal tape from 1966. Features Karen solo on banjo and guitar, plus four duets with Richard Tucker. Many never heard before covers including 'Reason To Believe' and 'Don't Make Promises' by Tim Hardin, and 'Other Side To This Life' by Fred Neil. KD at her most intimate and unfiltered. CD booklet contains beautiful, unseen photos (including Karen with Fred Neil and Tim Hardin), and a 3500 word essay by Ben Edmonds (MOJO and currently working on a biography of Tim Hardin)."
