Thread Name: Chords Req: A Year to Go By (Phil Ochs)
Subject: RE: Chord Req: phil ochs- a year to go by
Helllo M. Ted, I don't know about whether Phil ever performed it in concert or anything, but as far as I know, the version of the song, you and Jim are discussing is the only version ever released. I don't think that Phil ever went back and worked out a more thorough arrangement, I think it's one of the many songs he recorded in the broadside offices, for possible inclusion in that magazine, some of which were rerecorded elsewhere, and some of which were released on the broadside tapes vol. one. They were going to release more (thus the title, vol. one, but Phils sister and/or brother, boycotted it so there are still several songs recorded for broadside which have never seen the light of day. Hope that all of this is helpful to someone.
