Richie Havens has been steady rocking since the heyday of the Greenwich Village folk-music scene in the early ’60s. He has a new CD out called “Nobody Left to Crown.” It’s his 27th album.
His song “The Key” is available as a FREE MP3... but you need to move fast; it’ll be up at KCRW.com through the weekend. Follow this link to download it.
But first, click here and stream it on my Vox blog.
Below is Havens’s memorable – and improvised – performance of “Freedom” at Woodstock.
UPDATE (08/02/08): Aw shoot... the KCRW download link is down already. I assumed since they posted it on Friday, it would be active throughout the weekend. Sorry about that, y’all.
If I can find another free MP3 off this album, I’ll let you know.
