sharon van etten – remembering mountains

The opening and title track of a very beautiful compilation of recordings by different people of unheard Karen Dalton-penned songs, released in May this year on Tompkins Square Records. You can find it HERE.

And here are the lyrics and chords, handwritten by Karen. Karen’s melodies for the songs were not included, which is why this is more a record of collaborative compositions than straight covers. And it’s fascinating for that – you can certainly hear the debt all the participants owe her in their own work.
