Resume: The Best of Richie Havens (1993)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Richie Havens; Genres: Folk, Reissues

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+
