[Notes]
Recorded between 1962 and 1964, The Broadside Tapes 1 is a perfect showcase for Ochs' unique emotion, humor, and political perspective. This set features one of the most compelling voices of the '60s topical song movement performing 15 original songs, and a cover of The Beatles’ “I Should Have Known Better” performed live with Eric Andersen. Produced by Paul Kaplan. "Perhaps no American folksinger was more important in—and representative of—the '60s ...prime early Ochs at his topical best."
