Here’s the YouTube audio of Jose Feliciano’s version of The Star Spangled Banner we played in class. He performed it in Detroit before the fifth game of the 1968 World Series.

As we discussed in class, his version caused quite a controversy. Here’s Jose explaining what happened. (Click on “Show More” beneath the video and read more about the controversy.
