Blues Jumped the Rabbit by singer-songwriter Karen Dalton

I first discovered Karen Dalton through a friend and she features in the Bob Dylan autobiography, ‘Chronicles’, where Dylan says she had ‘a voice like Billie Holiday and played guitar like Jimmy Reed’. This clip is taken from a French TV show at her then home in Summerville, Colorado, in 1970. She struggled with addiction most of her life and there’s a haunting beauty and visceral pain in every note she sings. Her music evokes every genre from blues to folk to country to soul. A real original.
