Richie Havens – My Own Way

You are holding a piece of historical music in your hands: something to help you rediscover the prehistory of a pop music masterpiece.

“Why is a recording that was made in 1967 being released on CD over 40 years later? Well – I suppose – because it sounds so good! What I heard was Richie Havens singing and playing solo songs from the American folk and blues genres, – it was amazing – a voice of great strength and emotion and very impressive guitar playing. Richie Havens was performing in the clubs and coffee houses in and around NY Greenwich Village. If you want to hear a powerful, emotional Richie Havens singing and playing a repertoire of great American songs, check out these recordings.”    – ALAN DOUGLAS (producer)
