Can't disagree more with Christopher's review. Ochs was a great singer, just listen to the flawless and highly emotive performance of "Changes" on "There But For Fortune". The thunderous applause at the end comes as a bit of a shock, as you realise that it is a live recording (sadly, the version here, also live, is inferior). There is nothing wrong with the recording quality or techniques, and, as for Dylan's alleged remark, it was probably tongue-in-cheek (the two were friendly rivals): Ochs had previously claimed to be a "singing journalist". For a documented Dylan comment on Ochs (as if Dylan were the final arbiter of taste), try: "I just can't keep up with Phil. And he just keeps getting better and better and better". GlynnLuke is accurate in his dismissal of some of the tracks, but there are bound to be oddities in a 2CD collection meant to encompass a whole career, warts and all. Neophytes are redirected to the aforementioned "There But For Fortune".
