PHIL OCHS A HERO OF THE GAME Limited Edition Vinyl LP

Overview:
;; During this December 1965 radio broadcast, Phil plays just one already-released song - a version of Power
And The Glory, from ‘All The News...’. Several of the numbers included would remain unreleased for many
years before finally being issued on retrospective collections. Morning - which had been cut in demo form in
1963 - was not released until the ‘Farewells & Fantasies’ album released in 1997, whilst Song Of My
Returning and City Boy, both languished in the vaults until 1986’s ‘A Toast To Those Who Are Gone’.
;; The highlight of this WBAI broadcast is the debut of Phil’s classic track, Crucifixion (issued on 1967’s
‘Pleasures of the Harbour’), which had been written while on tour in the UK the previous month. The song
is allegorical, combining as it does images of John F. Kennedy and Christ.
;; A HISTORIC 1965 NEW YORK RADIO BROADCAST
