Format: Audio CD
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!
