Doctor John Greatest protest singer of the sixties (99* d) RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties 28 Jan 00


Phil Ochs was way ahead of the others; he had the right mix of protest and humour just like Woody had. Some really beautiful stuff. I agree with Larry: "White dove...sleep in the sand...cannonballs banned" is just pure doggeral to me. Just listen to Phil Ochs's tribute to Woody and compare Dylan's tribute - the latter is just a few WG lines badly cobbled together. Tom Paxton used to be good too; used to be! Dr John
