It's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You The Best...especially if you're ugly

Karen Dalton, known as the folkie Billie Holiday was part of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the 1960s, drifted west into a life of alcohol and drugs and died in 1993 penniless.
Her voice hurts your heart.

Some MP3s
Karen Dalton - Are You Leavin For The Country
Karen Dalton - Sweet Substitute

She only recorded two records:
It's So Hard To Tell Who's Going To Love You
The Best & In My Own Time
