It's led by a version of 'God Bless The Child'...

Greenwich Village folk icon Karen Dalton is to be the subject of an exhaustive new box set.

The singer was lauded by the likes of Bob Dylan, with Nick Cave citing her work - intense, poignant, visceral - as a tremendous influence.

Scattered across numerous albums and different labels, a new box set aims to bring her work together in one place.

The Karen Dalton Archives Box Set lands in March, and will feature 3x Clear Vinyl LPs, 3 x CDs, and a download card.

That's not all, though, with fans able to expect

- The 1962 live album 'Cotton Eyed Joe' and the 1963 home recordings album 'Green Rocky Road', on CD and for the first time on Vinyl

- Unreleased outtakes from the home recordings with guest musicians, on a download card

- A 56-page 12” book with the testimonies of friends and her own archives of music, photos, words

- A guitar tabs Karen Dalton T-Shirt

Out in March, the new Karen Dalton box set is led by this supernaturally intense version of 'God Bless The Child'.
