Product Description:

Originally released as THE BROADSIDE TAPES LP NO. 14". Recorded 1962-64.
Personnel: Phil Ochs (vocals, guitar).
Editors: Agnes "Sis" Cunningham; Gordon Friesen.
Photographer: David Gahr.
Collecting 16 songs originally recorded for the popular folk music magazine Broadside in 1963 and 1964, Phil Ochs' THE BROADSIDE TAPES, VOLUME ONE captures the young folkie at the very beginning of his career. Few of these songs ever appeared on album during Ochs' lifetime, but they're hardly mere curiosity pieces. From humorous story songs like "The Ballad of Alferd Packer," a tribute to a famous Colorado cannibal, to the topical "Christine Keeler," about the prostitute who nearly brought down the British government in the early '60s, Ochs shows the range that made him one of the folk scene's most influential members. The most fascinating track, though, is the last, a faithful cover of the Beatles' "I Should Have Known Better," which makes the pop orientation of his last three albums seem like much less of a departure. Though some of these recordings are of less than stellar audio quality, they're still musically essential.
