Notes

Previously unreleased performance.

Printed on OBI strip:
"In 1962, Karen summoned Richard Tucker to join her in Colorado, extolling the healthier lifestyle, and plentiful gigs at Boulder folk club, The Attic. Upon his arrival, the pair solidified their personal and professional relationship, riding horses in the mountains, and performing as a duo at parties and venues throughout Denver and Boulder.
Stories of the spell they conjured - and rumours of tapes - have circulated among friends and musicians who witnessed them, but until now, no recorded evidence had turned up. Shuckin' Sugar is the glorious result of three reel to reel tapes that miraculously found their way to us in November, 2018; which featured two complete shows from The Attic in January '63, and a benefit concert for Congress Of Racial Equality (CORE) recorded the following February.

Their gigs together often included brief solo sets by Karen and Richard. All seven solo performances by Karen found on the three reels are included here, as well as five duets, sequenced as close to how it all went down as humanly possible.

To describe the record would take a poet, but all I can say is that unveiling a missing chapter in the Karen Dalton story - with six songs we've never heard her sing before - is cause for celebration in Delmore's world

'From her opening, jaw-dropping lift off with early blues standard "Trouble In Mind," the unique otherworld Karen conjured springs into vivid life. Playing to audiences inevitably bound to the era's formalities and traditions, Karen instinctively pushed the envelope, straying into uncharted territory beyond the established borders. She must have bewildered many who came to see her in those winsome Peter, Paul and Mary times.'
- from the liner notes by Kris Needs"

This limited edition of 3500 on Transparent Natural Vinyl is available exclusively for Record Store Day 2022.

Fantastic Album ! Exquisite performances . Very nice package ; heavy duty tip-on cover with 8 page colour (12' X 12") booklet and download code . My vinyl came out somewhat dished, but plays fine with no audible defects.

This record is just amazing! Sounds pretty good for such an old recording.

The fidelity of the original recording itself is pretty low quality as expected but this release and pressing are perfect. Flat, clean, dead silent, beautiful package with tip on and insert. Well done. And the music itself is a 10/10. Get it while the gettings good.
