WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT Phil Ochs
James Kenny
He may not have been the most influential folk singer (Dylan, Joan Baez, even Richard & Mimi Farina got greater publicity), but he gave voice to those protesting the war in SE Asia with "I Ain't Marchin' Anymore," "Cops of the World," and "Santo Domingo." Though he has been dead for more than 30 years, his voice and his songs haunt me to this day.
Susan Kulick
Brought the genre of "protest singing" into magnificent flower.
