We gave it a B+

While the passionate folksinger’s rousing 1969 Woodstock performance of ”Freedom” caps off Resume: The Best of Richie Havens, other souvenirs here surpass it. Havens’ tender treatment of Bob Dylan’s ”Just Like a Woman” remains its definitive interpretation; the beautiful ”Follow” and the anti-war protest ”Handsome Johnny” are equally moving. A concise portrait of a dignified and distinguished artist. B+
