iTunes Review

The warm timbre of his voice remains as inviting as when he debuted in the 1960s (and made his name at the Woodstock festival where he played for over three hours), and his selection of cover material in 2008 remains eye-raising and perfectly in sync with his mission and message. At 67, Richie Havens may have earned his stripes as an elder statesman but he’s hardly a nostalgia act, still performing with the passion of someone a third his age. The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” is delivered with an ominous tone. Jackson Browne’s “Lives in the Balance” expresses its worldly concerns with simmering tension. Clarence Greenwood’s ‘Hurricane Waters” is fueled by Haven’s frustrated tone, while Haven’s originals, “The Key,” “Say It Isn’t So,” “If I,” and “We All Know Now” are beautifully complimented by a backing group who push ever so gently against the rhythms as Havens glides over the melodies with ease. He’d practically be considered “easy listening” if it weren’t for the strong social consciousness underlying his material and the passion and commitment that has never flagged over five decades of service.

Richie Triumphs Again

Richie Havens touches our souls and makes us look at our country and the world. He is a true American hero. If you have a chance to see him live DO NOT MISS IT. Until then, we have another collection of his interpretations and own compositions to make us think and inspire us. "Nobody Left to Crown" is Richie at his best. Thank you Richie.

Distinctive folk singer Richie Havens recorded three albums before he hit the charts in 1968 with Something Else Again, but it was his appearance at the Woodstock festival in 1969 that enormously benefited his career. Havens' first album after that exposure, Alarm Clock, made the Top 30 and produced a Top 20 single in "Here Comes the Sun." He became an international touring success and, by the end of the '70s, had abandoned recording, turning entirely to live work. Simple Things ended Havens' studio...
