Richie Havens: Going Back To My Roots

Described as the 25th most Balearic recording of all-times by, and as a "real toe-tapper" by one anonymous Amazon reviewer, this cut features Sly & The Family Stone alumnus and session legend Andy Newmark on drums. (Andy may have flown directly from this session to the Roxy Music "Avalon" sessions in the Bahamas.)

I would also like to add that Richie's voice sounds great on this.

from the album Connections

executive producer: Michael Lang

Not talking bout the root in the land...I'm talking bout the root in the man.

Stone me Emmett but this is good.

I'm intrigued to hear it is the 25th most Balearic recording of all-times according to, mind.

What was number 24? Number 26? And what about number one, come to that?!

We demand to know!!

Liking this 1-2. I suspect the version i'm more familiar with is perhaps the Groove Armada remix ?
