Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Phil Ochs (vocals, guitar).
  • Recording information: New York, NY (12/15/1965).
  • Taken from radio broadcast tapes of a concert given in late 1965, Hero of the Game sees the already legendary political folk singer Phil Ochs running through a set of almost completely unreleased material, with all but one of the tracks performed here already put to tape at the time of this concert. Among the bevy of tunes being heard by the audience for the first time in their rawest form, many stand out. In particular is a stunning version of "Crucifixion," a harrowing tune that was only a month old at the time of this recording, but wouldn't see a proper studio rendition until the 1967 release of Pleasures of the Harbour, an album many considered Ochs' finest moment. ~ Fred Thomas
