Richie Havens "High Flyin' Bird"


Universal Music Enterprises

About This Project

This two-disc collection gathers Richie Havens’ long-players Mixed Bag, Something Else Again and Richard P. Havens, 1983, plus the single-only “I’ve Gotta Go,” all of which hail from his brief stint with Verve\Forecast Records. Although Havens had already established himself as a formidable talent prior to participating in the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair, it was undeniably his extended opening set that solidified his stature as a folk icon. The 24-page booklet is full of photos, reproductions of the original LP art, an historical essay from Scott Schinder, and complete personnel as well as discographical annotations.
