"Fortune" was a hit for Baez. As Guest,Jim says, it certainly wasn't obscure. I don't know that Ochs really ever had a hit recording of his own. My thirty-something kids really like Ochs, but I always thought he was kind of whiny. I liked his songwriting, not his singing - but sometimes I found his songwriting a bit strident.
I like some of Dylan's singing, most of his songwriting, but I hated the one live Dylan performance I saw.
