Vinyl Companion Piece to Previously Released Live Again! CD
Phil Ochs (1940-1976) was an American folk and protest singer. After making his start in Columbus, OH, Ochs moved to New York in 1962, and soon became one of the top performers on the Greenwich Village folk music scene. He wore his politics on his sleeve and one of his early combos was called The Socialist Singers. Because he was so outspoken he often ran into roadblocks in regards to finding a mainstream audience.
Throughout the early 70's Ochs traveled the country and played many gigs. He was not actively recording. Live Again! (1973) presents Ochs at the Stables in East Lansing, Michigan running through a 70+ minute selection of his most beloved songs. Phil was recently the subject of the documentary, There But For Fortune, by Kenneth Bowser and his songs remain relevant to this day, consistently performed by countless artists.
