Another excellent entry in MCA's Millennium Collection, this features 12 of the singer/songwriter's best-known tunes. Havens' unique style moves effortlessly from standards like "San Francisco Bay Blues" to the bleakness of "The Klan" to very interesting covers of "Lady Madonna" and "Strawberry Fields Forever." A great little introductory set of Havens' best work. ~ Cub Koda
