Phil Ochs sings Joe Hill

By Kenneth Rainey. Filed under: TweedBlog, video.

There’s not a lot of great footage of Phil Ochs out there, so every little clip is very much appreciated. This is a clip of Phil singing his tribute to the legendary wobbly Joe Hill, from a Swedish TV special in 1968. Phil looks a little worse for the wear here, but he’s in fine voice, and it’s a very good performance.
