    Hey, that's a coincidence! I loved him on the Woodstock dvd (playing Freedom and Handsome Johnny) but didn't seem to be able to find anything more about him.

    Those two songs songs really hit me, especially with views of the festival and all. Really powerful. Thanks for posting this.

    a few years ago when we were about to attack iraq, demonstrations took place in every major city worldwide. i went to the NYC one. granted, there we a few hundred thousand people between us, but i could see him up there next to susan surandin playing his guita

    I have the Woodstock DVD, and his two songs on it are amazing! Unfortunately, I don't have any of his albums, but i might get one of them soon.

    Yup, it's totally breathtaking. The Woodstock version of Handsome Johnny even made me cry once.

    Richie Havens kicks too much ass for me to explain how much I love his music and what it means to me.

    I love him!!!!!!!
