Editor’s note. When Phil Ochs returned to New York from the chaotic 1968 Democratic National Convention he gave an interview to Izzy Young of the folklore Center in the village to be sent up to Broadside. It is technically a pretty bad tape. The recorder had seen better times. Phil and Izzy seem to be sitting beside an open window with all the street noises in the background; the uproar of traffic, the clatter of garbage cans, johns honking at their hookers to come out; people screaming at each other. However Phil and Izzy’s conversation can be understood and we present the interview below, transcribed.
