Video Du Jour: Richie Havens

Celebrating the anniversary of the big Woodstock Music and Art Fair, which started 43 years ago today. One of the first acts to perform was Richie Havens, singing and strumming acoustically even while workers continued to set up the stage and sound system.

Sorry for the credits rolling toward the end – this bit is from a 1990 documentary, Woodstock: The Lost Performances, which featured performers and/or songs that didn’t make it into the Academy Award-winning movie. The Lost Performances was issued only on VHS and has long been out of print but you can maybe scratch up a used copy on Amazon.
