Richie Havens - RIP
Richie Havens: The Lost Broadcasts: This release compiles a number of television appearances by musician Richie Havens between 1969 and 1971. The sessions featured are drawn from June 1969 through October 1971. From the earliest sessions just before the Woodstock festival, Havens performs two versions of the Beatles song 'Lady Madonna' and 'Just Above My Hobby Horses Head', both tracks from the Richard P Havens album. Moving forward to October 1971, we have three versions of the George Harrison song 'Here Comes The Sun', which was a featured track on his then current album Alarm Clock. Two other songs come from this session. 'Teach Your Children' and a cover of the James Taylor song 'Fire And Rain'. The final song comes from a session filmed almost a month later at the end of October and is another take on the George Harrison song 'Here Comes The Sun'.
