128k, 100 minutes, the life and music of Phil Ochs
In these days of the Occupy Movement, when the people have been aroused to take back the world from monied interests, I think it's time to give a listen to one of this country's great symbols of protest, Phil Ochs.
A Phil fan since the 1960s, I had only seen a few seconds of film of Phil performing -- until Kenneth Bowser's documentary on Phil called There But For Fortune revealed there are hours of films and audio of Phil not known. Taking excerpts from the film and combining them with biographical information and a deep listen into Phil's amazing body of music, the inspirational story of this firebrand is compelling and sad, but necessary.
All performances unless otherwise noted by Phil Ochs. Audio excerpts from the film There But For Fortune by Kenneth Bowser (2010), including the voices of Phil Ochs, Michael Ochs, Sonia Ochs, Meegan Ochs, Billy Bragg, Larry Marks, Jerry Moss, Tom Hayden, Christopher Hitchens, Pete Seeger and others.
Set list: When I'm Gone / Draft Dodger Rag / Changes / Cross My Heart (single mix) / Outside of a Small Circle of Friends / Joe Hill / The War Is Over / Joan Baez-There But For Fortune / Love Me, I'm a Liberal / When In Rome / The World Began In Eden and Ended in Los Angeles (Vancouver BC, 13 March 1969) / Pleasures of the Harbor (Carnegie Hall, NYC, 27 March 1970) / Chords of Fame / Bwatue (Phil's last single, recorded in Kenya 1973 with the Pan African Ngembo Rumba Band, the title means "canoe") / The Death of Allende and the Friends of Chile Benefit 1974 (from There But For Fortune) / No More Songs
The music in this program comes from Phil Ochs' Elektra and A&M albums I Ain't Marchin' Anymore, Phil Ochs in Concert, Pleasures of the Harbor, Tape from California, Phil Ochs' Greatest Hits, and Gunfight at Carnegie Hall. "Bwatue" comes from a single. Rhino released the There and Now Live in Vancouver 1968 (sic) album. Biographical material used in the program comes from the McMan's Bipolar Web and the Google Biography Site (some material read directly from these sites).
With special thanks to Michael Ochs, the film There But For Fortune, and my listeners.
The rebels they were here. They came beside the door. They told me that the moon was bleeding. Then all to my surprise, they took away my eyes, and it seems that there are no more songs
