This is a totally biased review. Phil Ochs has been my favorite performer ever since I discovered "Rehearsals For Retirement" in a small record shop in my home town sometime in late 1968 or early '69. I had never heard of him before that, but was intrigued by the cover image and the poem on the back. Over the years I have collected all of his recorded material that I could find, on LP, then a few posthumous releases on CD. A friend of mine had these interviews on LP and allowed me to make a cassette recording of them years ago, then a few days ago I purchased this MP3 file. I'm sure there are many who would consider Phil's politics to be too radical for them, but I consider him to be the truest American voice I've ever heard. He loved this country but was not blind to its faults, and wanted desperately to raise awareness of the dangers of corruption all around. In these interviews he talks about the music business, movies, politics, even the space program, and how the optimism he felt when he came to New York, the optimism of the entire country at that time, the New Frontier of John Kennedy, etc...how all of that optimism was being destroyed by the greed of the corporations. Nearly every song that Phil wrote is as relevant today as when he first wrote and recorded them, and that is also true of his comments in these interviews. He's not marching anymore, his rehearsal is over, but his words still ring true.
