Richie Havens and Country Joe and The Fish, WoodStock

"Freedom" by Richie Havens and be sure to listen to Country Joe and The Fish and their anti Vietnam song. Plus a small spelling lesson to boot!

FUN FACT: Sweetwater was supposed to be the first band to play at Woodstock, but they were caught in a traffic jam. So they talked Richie into playing a song and then they asked him to keep playing for a bit. He totally improvised this song, it ended up being called "freedom" and being a worldwide hit. Awesome stuff.
