Everybody seems to have heard of Bob Dylan but fewer appear to have heard of Phil Ochs. Phil Ochs was simply the best of the 60's folk singers, singer song writers or whatever label you care to add, streets ahead of Dylan and the other; in fact he liked to call himself a 'topical singer' rather than a folk singer. How does '60's topical' now sound when we are as far from the 60's and the 60's were from Word War I? Well just listen to 'In the Heat of the Summer' which, especially following the recent riots, is as relevant today as it was then. And so with many of his songs because times like people never really do change; and even those that aren't quite so relevant can still be enjoyed. There's no whinging doggerel here but a biting bitter humour and now and then that odd phrase that sticks in your mind:

'So wrong, so wrong but we've been down too long, And we had to make somebody listen'

Listen to the hilarious 'Draft Dodger's Rag', the beautiful love song 'Celia', the rare ability to adapt poems to music (The Highwayman)and the superb tribute to Woody Guthrie, 'Bound for Glory', where he comments that we may sing the songs but ignore their meaning.

Buy this and 'All the News that's Fit to Sing' and you'll have two excellent CD's of a true successor to Woody Guthrie.

Phil Ochs sady died by his own hand many years ago now, a great loss.

Although little known now, Phil Ochs warrants mention alongside Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger as one of the great protest singers. Despite that rather mournful sobriquet, for the most part these are bright melodic songs with a stinging sarcasm at their heart. There is an abiding humour to temper the anger at civil rights abuses. Although of its time, it is easy enough to pick up on the humanity and attitude in these songs. If you were playing this in the American Deep South it could still get you lynched!

The pick of the album is the original recording of "I ain't marching anymore" one listen should hook anyone. The worst is the toe-curling remix version, which sounds like Fran and Anna do protest.

If you like Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Loudon Wainwright III or Billy Bragg then you owe it to yourself to try this. Finally his biography is heart-breaking, a life snuffed out like sixties idealism by the cold hard seventies.

This is perhaps Phil Ochs' best studio album. It contains some superb tracks, Well sung and with good instrumental work. I remember this from when it was first released and was thrilled to be able to add it to my collection. The title track has been recorded by many other people (as have some of the others) and remains one of the great anti-war songs of its generation.

Dylan got the fame and wealth but Ochs lived the life, told the truths and got ignored because of it....a real Punk attitude from the 60's..
