Talking Birmingham Jam
Label: Old Stars
An even stronger LP than Ochs' debut, the title track and the toxically satiric "Draft Dodger Rag" became early anti-war anthems, while "Here's to the State of Mississippi" was embraced by the civil rights movement. If you think that Ochs was only a "professional againster," listen to "That Was the President," his deeply heartfelt reaction to the J.F.K. assassination.
