Richie Havens Woodstock – Excellent

His Woodstock appearance proved to be a major turning point in Richie’s career. As the festival’s first performer, he held the crowd spellbound for nearly three hours, called back for encore after encore.

The subsequent movie release helped Richie reach a worldwide audience of millions.
