Richie Havens “Grassy, Grass, Grass” – Listen

Well, it was five years yesterday since we lost the beautiful Richie Havens (Guardian Obituary).  He was still working on new songs, some of which have never been given a formal CD release but are available in the usual places.  Here’s one you might not have heard – from a children’s literacy project – a duet with Kris Kristofferson on Woody Guthrie’s ‘Grassy, Grass, Grass’.  Enjoy.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
