As the conflicts and divisions in American society deepened in the mid-60s, Phil Ochs sharpened his songwriting pen on 1965s I Aint Marching Anymore to deliver some of the most passionate and pointed protest songs of the decade. WIth topics ranging from American militarism, civil rights, labor struggles and the Vietnam War, the album may sound dated...or maybe not.

"Phil Ochs, in his open and triuphantly victorious album, "I Ain't Marching Anymore", influences our minds, energizes our bodies, and aids our souls in the never-ending, human quest for truth. Phil Och's music is truth, and that's the only way to describe it. It's not exactly folk music, with its tragic, painfull, though, allbeit, common songs about the depth of humanity's suffering, but something greater. Something not limited to the suffering of poor people and indegents, but of the human condition in general. The infinite human compassion, and the violent, terrible human history; two parts of humanity, both seperate and precious, and both necessary. Violence, in its past tense, is useful: without it, no one could learn from it. With it, however, humanity can expand and progress. This is what Phil Ochs was trying to communicate with his music."
Incredle lyrics; abysmal sound quality

"This is one of Phil's best. If you're not interested in the sixties, just listen to The Highwayman, or Hills of West Virginia. However, the Hannibal CD is wretched. The sound is often clipped and garbled. You can sometimes even hear people talking in the background. These noises are *not* on my 35 year old LP. Very sad."
True Protest singing

"Ochs with his education in Journalism makes his second album the one he is most regognizable for. It is true "raw" lyrics and,(after listening to it for a while) poetry. Too bad (or good) Ochs had to make this album the less commercial possible. "Here's to the state of Mississippi", "I Ain't Marchin Anymore", "Iron Lady", "That was the President" and "The Links on the Chain" are true classics. Begin or end your Folk collection with this album, just buy it and see the world from a different angle forever!"
