If you've not gotten into Phil Ochs before, here's a a good place to start. Here are older and newer songs, Everything from his empathy-full classic "There But For Fortune," who so many others covered, to such memorable (and very humourous!) songs such as the "Draft Dodger Rag" which lists all the good reasons you might give the U.S. government for not being able to enlist and fight in their stupid and unnecessary war in Vietnam. Also anti-war, is the "I ain't Marching Anymore" where he observes; "It's always the old who lead us to the war, -it's always the young who fall...". Having originally attended a military college, Phil is swearing never to again march, (-in a military way), but continued, of course, to 'march' with the protestors and civil rights groups. Then, (from the A&M album 'Tape From California'), -at 25 years old, and already internationally acclaimed, Phil sings "..And now it can be told, I'm a half a century old, -but I'm a half a century high!" -a life affirming autobiographical song. Look out too for the early, and lovely work, "The ballad of Medgar Evers", where he again champions the cause of those who have been wronged... just as he did in "The Ballad of Joe Hill" and other songs. This is a good 'taster' of Ochs's songwriting skills, spanning many years. It's well worth the dollars!

This is classic Phil Ochs - polititcal songs, philosophical songs and humorous songs. I particularly enjoyed "Draft Dodger Rag" and the "Airplane" song. A number of songs here are included on other CD's but they are more acoustic versions. Although I thought I knew all of Phil's material, there were some songs that I had not heard before.

phil at his confident best
on 8 January 2006 - Published on Amazon.com
The non concert tracks sees Phil at his quietly persuasive in addressing the civil rights causes of the day, an early cut of 'There but for Fortune',Phil's equal exercise in universality to Dylan's 'Blowing in the wind' plus his totally hilarious standout studio cut 'Talking Airplane Disaster.'The 1963/1964 appearances at Newport show slightly different words to studio songs which flower in the rapturous applause building up by 'Links on the Chain.'With one exception, you see Phil in 1966 preview in acoustic form much more personal songs later cut in 'Pleasures from the Harbour'.They are valid alternatives in acoustic setting,and 'Cross my Heart' gains from this setting.

Phil Ochs, topical singer, poet, and genius
on 13 January 2007 - Published on Amazon.com
Amazing album. Phil Ochs is truly one of the most important musicians of all time- his talent for playing the guitar pailed in comparison to his talent for writing eloquent, meaningful, hard-hitting topical songs. Despite being effectively black-balled by the entertainment industry/socio-political powers that were, Ochs' songs, whether political, social, or personal, have deeply influenced all those who listen to his music and take his words to heart.
