Greatest Hits
New - LP - SP 4253
Sealed 1970 Heavy Vinyl Brown Label Original. “Searching For A New Direction, In 1970 Ochs Paired Up With Producer Van Dyke Parks And Released Greatest Hits, A Set Of New Material Whose Title Was Mostly A Joke, But Partly A Half-Hearted Wish For A New Beginning (Though The Back Cover Slogan, "Fifty Phil Ochs Fans Can't Be Wrong!" Proved Sadly Prophetic -- The Album Was A Commercial Bust). Much Of The Time, Greatest Hits Finds Ochs Looking To His Past For Some Sense Of A Place To Go -- Singing Of His Boyhood Dreams ("Boy In Ohio"), Celebrating The Heroes Of His Youth ("Jim Dean Of Indiana"), And Emulating The Rockabilly And Country Songs That Were His Earliest Influences ("Gas Station Women," "My Kingdom For A Car"). It's Hard To Blame Ochs For Wanting To Live In The Past, Since His Present Sounds Truly Harrowing, Particularly On The Calmly Desperate Opener, "One Way Ticket Home," His Meditation On The Stardom He Never Achieved, "Chords Of Fame," And A Closing Requiem To His Own Muse, "No More Songs." The Sorrow And Anguish Is Not Hard To Spot In Ochs' Performances, Though There's A Passionate Intensity That Rings Through From First Track To Last, And Parks' Arrangements And Production Are Imaginative And Make The Most Of The Material. Greatest Hits Is A Powerful Piece Of Work, But Also A Very Depressing One, Despite The Glossy Presentation, Occasionally Forced Good Cheer, And The Final Overheard Conversation In Which Ochs Mumbles "I'll Be Around For A While," And It's Both Sad And Appropriate That It Would Prove To Be Ochs' Final Studio Album; He Committed Suicide In 1976.” Mark Deming, AMG. more

Rehearsals For Retirement
Used - LP - SP 4181
1969 US Original, Tan Label Terre Haute Pressing. Nice VG+ Copy. Cover Shows Some Light Indentation Markings And Few Spindle Marks On Center Labels. "On Rehearsals For Retirement, Ochs Retained His Poetic Sense, But His Songs Were Imbued With The Conflicts Of The Times. The Leadoff Track, "Pretty Smart On My Part," The Hardest-Rocking Number Ochs Had Yet Recorded, Is Sung In The Persona Of A Violent Right-Wing Extremist Who Fantasizes About Running Over Hitchhikers, Whipping Women, And Finally Assassinating The President And Taking Over The Government. Similarly, "I Kill Therefore I Am," A Twangy Rocker, Is Sung In The Voice Of A Policeman Who Hates Long-Hairs, Blacks, Students, And Homosexuals And Plans To Spray Them With Mace, Beat Them, And Shoot Them. Specifically Combining The Poetical With The Political, The Gentle Waltz-time Piano Ballad "William Butler Yeats Visits Lincoln Park And Escapes Unscathed" Is A Haunting Depiction Of The Confrontation Between Demonstrators And Police In Chicago, Quickly Followed By A Dancehall Ditty That Sends Up Its Somber Reflections Without Relieving The Tragic Tone. The Result Of The Convention And The Subsequent Election Of Richard Nixon As President Represents, In The Songwriter's Judgment, The Dawn Of "Another Age," And A Terrible One. That Declaration Is As Positive As Things Get On Rehearsals For Retirement. For Much Of The Album, Ochs Expresses Despair Rather Than Anger. "My Life," Another Attractive Piano Ballad Laced With Strings, Traces His Personal Disillusionment, While "The Scorpion Departs But Never Returns," Actually A Topical Song About A Nuclear Submarine That Sank In 1968, Evokes Familiar Ochs References To Sailors, Who, Here, All Drown. The Plaintive "Doesn't Lenny Live Here Anymore" Concerns The Drug Overdose Death Of Comedian Lenny Bruce. In Retrospect, Especially Because Of Ochs' Suicide Seven Years Later, It Is Impossible Not To See The Evidence Of The Songwriter's Personal Anguish In Rehearsals For Retirement."

Tape From California
Used - LP - SP 4148
1968 Brown Label, Heavy Vinyl Stereo Original. “On His Fourth Album, Pleasures Of The Harbor, Phil Ochs Broke From Both His Topical Songwriting Style And His Acoustic Folk Music Approach For An Album Of Long, Poetic Songs Set To Elaborate, Eclectic Arrangements. For Its Follow-Up, Tape From California, He Combined His Earlier And More Recent Styles, Addressing Such Issues As War And Union Organizing Along With More Discursive Efforts, And Including A Few More Complicated Arrangements Mixed In With Simple Guitar Accompaniments. There Were Some Directly Political Efforts, But In The More Poetic Songs, Ochs Seemed To Be Painting A Portrait Of A Desperate, Debased Society And His Own Sense Of Personal Decline. For Example, The Marathon "When In Rome" Conflated Images From Slavery, The Nuremberg Trials, And Ancient Rome To Compile A Compendium Of Evil And Decadence Through The Centuries, Clearly Implying That The Present Day Was Another Such Era. Ochs Imbued His Lyrics With His Characteristic Sense Of Irony, And The Arrangements By Producer Larry Marks, Bob Thompson, And Ian Freebairn-Smith Complemented The Songs Wittily. But Released In The Middle Of 1968, The Most Tumultuous Year Of The Tumultuous '60s, Tape From California Was Often Hard To Listen To, Because It Was Such A Frighteningly Accurate Portrait Of Its Times, Eerily Mirroring The Point At Which Passionate Argument Over The Direction Of The Country Spilled Over Into Violence And A Widespread Sense Of Absurdity.” William Ruhlmann, AMG. more
