Background: Released in 1968, Something Else Again was the second album by Richie Havens.
The album reached #184 on the U.S. album charts.
The sound here is more keyboard-heavy than its predecessor Mixed Bag, but Richie Havens continues in a similar vein with his distinctive smoky voice and thumb-fretted open-tuned guitar. “No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed” and “Don’t Listen to Me” are propelled by Warren Bernhardt’s percussive electric piano, while “Inside of Him” and “Sugarplums” are pretty ballads featuring the flute of Jeremy Steig. “The Klan” and “Run Shaker Life” are cut from the same mold as “Handsome Johnny,” the Woodstock show-stopper from Mixed Bag.
