i love the beautiful accoustic guitars of P&G records and the recording values, putting the plucked notes way up in the mix.
i have those 3 cds, of 2 albums each, on the Collectables Label.
now, i want the last album they did, " hot cold mustard" ('68)!
and did anyone know that Gordon did a solo album in the early '70s, titled, "Gordon" ?
"a world without love", is a song that i loved since i first heard it in 1964, and is one of those sountracks of my life.
it's interesting that another of my favorites of similar vibes, is, "Bad To Me", from Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas, was ALSO, written by Lennon/Mccartney! CHEERS!

...what the world needs now...


re: P & G lite

Me too, bob, until C & J released Cabbages & The Ark...maybe a reaction to their perceived
image....both are really good psych with political overtones. Really like P & G. Great music.
My favorite McCartney penned tune, though, is "Come and Get It." Badfinger went on
to become on of the best power pop groups ever & a personal favorite. Straight Up.

The personal tragedies of Badfinger members...so sad....

AORTA Self titled.

Anyone else know this 1969 gem of a psych record. Very trippy.

There is plenty of "new" obscure stuff from all eras, I agree. I do find it sad though when some people seem to spend all their time listening to the music of the past whilst ignoring lots of the great music that is being produced today.

No, the 'new' edition of Smile does not count

Shucks! But I agree, caryne. I've always listened to many kinds of music, new & old, rock, punk, new age, Celtic, blues, jazz, classical....a little Debussy right now.........blue grass, opera.......so much good stuff out there, it's endless & wonderful!

yeay! pleasures of the harbor is one special album! so sad about Ochs'
very utimely death. we need more artists like him.
do you have, " Phil Ochs Greatest Hits"!? it's not a greatest hits album, but a studio album, with a mock reference to Elvis, " 50 Phil Ochs Fans Can't Be Wrong!" with ry cooder,clarance white,chris ethridge,james burton(yeah, that james burton!), gene parsons,produced by van dyke parks. i think he just saw too much hypocracy and lies, and decided to split the scene. he would have much material to write, now, if he had stayed!

So true, bob. From what I've read, when the times changed & his messages were no longer heeded or needed, it broke his heart. He had such a social conscience, along with his bi-polar disorder.....just couldn't make it anymore. During what seemed to be a "recovery" period, he sent his nephew on an errand.... and hung himself. Just too sad. So much humanity in his music and voice. His song about JFK/Christ "The Crucifixion" brought RFK to tears at a live solo performance just months before RFK was killed.

I'm still looking for "Greatest Hits"......his live performances of that (in his Elvis suit) got some
boos, but was generally well received.....he played till 3AM to an adoring audience at one show.

Any fans of Phil's song "Crucifixion" need to hear the best ever version of it (for my money, it bests Phil's own) by Jim & Jean Glover, from the album "Changes." Al Kooper and Harvey Brooks both play on it; Phil himself wrote the liner notes, it included songs by Ochs, David Blue, Eric Anderson, and Dylan. Collector's Choice issued it in 2004

Nice one, bob. Do you have "I Ain't Marching Anymore"?
( Haven't heard the version you spoke of, RW...."Crucifixion"....love that song, as I say above.
I'll have to check it out.....& David Blue! How many know him?)

Here is a statement entered into the Congressional Record by Congresswoman Bella Abzug:

Mr. Speaker. a few weeks ago, a young folksinger whose music personified the protest mood of the 1960's took his own life. Phil Ochs ---- whose original compositions were compelling moral statements against war in Southeast Asia ---- apparently felt that he had run out of words.

While his tragic action was undoubtedly motivated by terrible personal despair, his death is a political as well as an artistic tragedy. I believe it is indicative of the despair many of the activists of 1960's are experiencing as they perceive a government which continues the distortion of national priorities that is exemplified in the military budget we have before us.

Phil Ochs' poetic pronouncements were part of a larger effort to galvanize his generation into taking action to prevent wars, racism, and poverty. He left us a legacy of important songs that continue to be relevant in 1976 ----even though "the was is over".

Just one year ago---during this week of the anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War----Phil recruited entertainers to appear at the "War Is Over" celebration in Central Park, at which I spoke.

It seems particularly appropriate that this week we should commemorate the contributions of this extraordinary young man."

I think Phil would have felt pleased & proud with this tribute. Has Bella's statement held any more weight that day than it does today? I ain't marching anymore!

Mr. Ochs sure was a revolutionary at the time. He had such great social conscience and his songs are powerful reminders. I too have his records. I always thought that "greatest hits" album of his was his way of thumbing his nose at the state of American society at the time. He didn't like what he saw. It was an insane time. But yet his songs live on tehrefoe the messages they hold will never go away..another of his great songs.."Flower Lady"..always liked it...
