Cool Covers


A couple of original Woodstock acts provide today’s songs, one old and one new.  The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” is one of rock’s undisputed anthems, and anyone who dares to cover this classic is treading on holy ground.  But that’s no problem for eternal iconoclast Richie Havens, who opened 1969’s Woodstock Music and Arts Festival in memorable fashion (rent the movie).  Havens’ version of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” is from his upcoming Nobody Left To Crown.  And because the Who’s original studio recording of this song is so familiar, we’ve enclosed a live version from the 2006 tour.
