I Ain't Marching Anymore
As I spent my 'Nam years in Medical School, safe, protected, and coddled I often would hear the protest songs of Ochs. I loved them all and still do. Even as a Conservative, today, I realize how prescient he was. I was so saddened when he felt the impulse to leave us.
One of the Best Protest Albums Ever
I grew up on this album - like Peter, Paul and Mary and Simon and Garfunkle, I knew every word to every song by the time I was 7. The songs range from timeless protest songs like "I Ain't Marching Anymore" to amazing interpretations such as "The Highwayman." All solo and all acoustic, Phil's talents shine on this album, and the songs, even the ones somewhat dated, are still applicable. All in all, if you like protest, folk-rock, great lyrics and music, and have a social conscious, then this album is for you.
A Classic Album
This is THE masterpiece of protest albums. Phil Ochs' passion and biting political commentary combine to make each song on this album moving and thought provoking. Whether it is Vietnam War protest songs like "I Ain't Marching Anymore" and "Draft Dodger Rag, " or condemnation of violence toward African-Americans in "Here's to the State of Mississippi," Ochs captures and sings the heart of changing America in the mid-1960s. Tragically his life ended way to soon, but this work stands as spectacular legacy of a great singer-song writer.
