Something Else Again is an album by American folk singer and guitarist Richie Havens, released in January 1968.[3] The track, "Run, Shaker Life" was based on a Shaker dance song by elder Issachar Bates[4] and reworked from Havens' old band, The Last Men, who reunited for this recording.[5] "No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed" was later reworked by Yes on their second album, Time and a Word.
