CD Reviews

Excellent
William R. Nicholas | Mahwah, NJ USA | 12/18/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Alarm Clock continues with the ideas on Richie Haven's Mixed Bag: take good popular songs, and apply Richie's vocals and madman strumming.

This is a little more guitar geared than Bag, and is not the tight folk-pop masterpiece that album is , but it is still a great album.

Absurdly, Havens' albums from this era are hard to get or out of print, only available on pricey imports. More absurdly, people now think of him as "the guy who opened Woodstock."

But back in their time, these were important for kids into folk rock, expecially African American one's who connected to the genre through Richie, and were regulars if not staples on early FM radio.

There is no good reason all his albums from 1967-72 should not be in print."
