Phil Ochs: America's Fieriest Songwriter
Karl Dallas, Melody Maker, 17 September 1966
LAST TIME American singer/songwriter Phil Ochs was here he stormed around from gig to gig, ending up in a four-letter-worded altercation with a St Pancras Town Hall audience who objected to some of his remarks. But Phil has just ended a month's stay, and hardly anyone knew he'd been here. Has the stormy petrel of American folksong changed?
