Easily the greatest album ever recorded by the legendary Phil Ochs – a masterpiece of politics and power, filled with themes that still resonate strongly 40 years later! From the very first note of the set, Ochs expresses himself with a confidence, intelligence, and clear-headed vision that cannot be denied – a way of getting to the heart of the issues that matter, issues that were coming to a head back in the mid 60s, but which still lie largely unresolved to date – and have a nearly timeless quality here in the stripped-down guitar and vocals presentation of the album. This is the kind of set that made Elektra records one of the most chance-taking labels of the 60s, and it's far more than just a simple folk album – really one of the first bold moments of politics in 60s pop, and the harbinger of countless records to come. Titles include "I Ain't Marching Anymore", "Iron Lady", "Links On The Chain", "Hills Of West Virginia", "The Men Behind The Guns", "Here's To The State Of Mississippi
", "In The Heat Of The Summer", and "That Was The President".
