Electric Havens

LP (Item 366606) Douglas, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

For some reason, we find that we like the Richie Havens albums on Douglas the best – possibly because they're reputedly earlier sides augmented a bit with some trippy post-Woodstock arrangements that made them a better sell for the 70s. Richie's core vocals and guitar sound great – very earthy and moody – and the larger arrangements have some nice flute bits that bring out a trippy sound on the record. Titles include "Oxford Town", "My Own Way", "I'm A Stranger Here", "Boots & Spanish Leather", and "Shadow Town".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s!
