Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
"This is a generous book by an undeniably generous spirit."
Publishers Weekly, 7/19/1999Review:
"[This book] contains an extensive list of Havens' 23 records, his backup men and his 14 soundtracks, but it doesn't tell us beans about his soul. It gives us his Recommended Reading List, which includes Kahlil Gibran, Abbie Hoffman and Dwight D. Eisenhower's final take on the military-industrial complex---but there isn't a single insight into his own personal complex so we can figure out what makes him tick. His path has been exciting. After all, he came out of one of the most desperate slums in America, and was smack dab in the middle of the music and social revolution of the '60s. His story certainly could have been as powerful as that of Malcolm X, or James Baldwin or Richard Wright....The title of the book is "They Can't Hide Us Anymore," but our read on this is that, for unknown reasons, the real Richie Havens has been carefully buried back there somewhere behind the grandstand."
